  1. I actually got a few years ago with the 콩쥐 팥쥐 in Korean. Since I didn’t speak any Korean back then I gave up trying to understand it and I’ve never picked the book back up. My Korean is now way more advanced but I guess it’s never too late to pick the book back up and read and actually understand it!
