It seems like it’s been forever since our last Traditional Story free resource, but hopefully the The Gassy Lady and Step Daughter (방귀쟁이 며느리) is worth the wait.
Here is a brief plot outline (we’ll try not to give everything away):
There once was a very gassy lady who farted louder than anyone else in her village. She even won competitions because of the power of her farts. But she was lonely and so decided to hide her skill. Some time later she met a man and they soon were married. However father-in-law found out about her farting and thought his son could do better. But on the trip back to her village the gassy lady was able to impress her father-in-law and he realized that she was special and his son had made a good choice.
The moral of the story is that everything is special in it’s own way.
