How Folktales Contributed to the Confucianisation of Korea: Mother Green Tree Frog and her Children

Professor James Grayson

Through an examination of selected Korean folktales, the lecture will illustrate how traditional society was influenced by Confucian values and how in turn folktales reinforced the values of Confucianism in society.

A brief overview will be provided of Confucian values as established in Korea, as well as an analytical framework for examining folktales. Five tales still popular in contemporary Korean culture will be discussed.
