I stumbled across this at a local thrift store and now I'm on the quest for the rest of the set. This is the first book and tells the story of the Woodcutter and the Heavenly Maiden as well as an additional story about Firehounds. I really loved the Woodcutters story while the firehound was good, but not quite as good as the Woodcutters story in my opinion. A nice feature in these stories is that the original Korean is perseved in a box under the english text.
