Abstract

The overall purpose of this research topic is to examine a folk belief within Korean culture. Essentially, the design of this paper starts off with this researcher’s initial understanding of dokkaebi, then develops the popular cultural symbol through personal interviews and academic literature. Finally, this paper will discuss the greater implications of the dokkaebi as a cultural symbol in terms of group philosophy and historical context.

Notes

This was my final paper for ENGL368D: African American Folklore and Literature; while the topic does not seem to relate to the course title, we were given free rein for our topics as long as it related to folklore and we cleared it with the professor.
