Chapter Summary

According to shamanist myths in the Korean mainland and Cheju Island, the creation God separated the sky and the earth, split the sun and moon to create stars, made day and night, and separated living spirits from ghosts. This chapter narrates a myth about a tribute of one hundred head of white horses. Once upon a time, when Mr.Yang lived on Cheju Island, he became Cheju's magistrate commanded by the Seoul government. At that time, the Cheju government offered a hundred white horses to the Seoul government, where the royal palace was, as tribute each year. The commander returned to Seoul, gave the head of Mr.Yang to the king and told what he had done to the official in charge of tribute. Thanks to Mr. Yang, the Cheju government no longer had to offer a hundred white horses as tribute to the Seoul government.
