U.S. has been translated into English fairy tales collected by Hulbert, an American missionary and linguist, during his stay in Korea. Korean fairy tales are English versions of children's literature, which were not so many at that time, and are very valuable materials.

The following stories have been taken directly from the folk-lore of Korea. Some of the types will be readily detected, such as the Cinderella type and others which are found in many and widely distributed countries. They are the result of some twenty years of residence in Korea and some considerable examination of that literature, but especially of personal contact with the people in their ordinary life and avocations where folk-lore persists at its best.
