Synopsis

8. Brave Hong Gildong / The Man Who Bought The Shade Of A Tree by Yonkyong Kim

The eighth in the ten-part Korean Folk Tales for Children series, Brave Hong Gil-dong revolves around the son of a concubine who becomes a modern day Robin Hood when he turns into a chivalrous thief who works for the cause of justice. The Man Who Bought the Shade of a Tree is the story of a greedy old man who urges a young man to pay for taking a break in the shade of a tree. Only after he has rented out the space under the tree does the greedy man discover that this tree has so much greater value than simply providing shade.
