So here is a little ghost story my Korean language teacher told me once. It is from the Joseon Dynasty.
Once there was a great famine sweeping the country, poverty rife amongst the peasant classes.
One family struggled so much to feed their starving children that the husband wife visited a fresh grave in the mountains. There they unearthed the recently dead corpse of man. They removed his leg and carried it home to feed the corpse-flesh to their dying children, except….
…the ghost followed them home, calling for his leg.
I must admit, I totally used this story in one of historical fiction books, Promise Season! Haha! 🙂
