Samani Lived Three ThousandYears Sama Changja and His Scapegoat Horse Kaksi Sonnim, the Smallfox Goddess Kamu njang-agi, the Goddess of Good Fortune Gods Protecting a Village Kunung, the Warrior God of Preventing Misfortune It is certain that no Korean oral myths would exist today without the kut.

Therefore, the kut is undeniably the mother of all Korean oral myths. Koreans believed that all gods possessed different types of divine authority. It was important therefore for Koreans to know the particular divine authority ies of all the gods and the processes by which almighty power was obtained because they believed that only the right god would be able to solve their particular problems.

Koreans chose to praise the greatness of a god indirectly by praising the process of obtaining almighty power. Thus, by knowing the process and praising it, Koreans believed that the god would eventually solve their prob- lems. As each person has a different background, so, likewise, all gods have different backgrounds. Different backgrounds mean that all gods have different forms of divine power; for example, there is a disease-curing god, an offspring-conceiving god, a god for the deceased, a harvesting god and a family-protecting god.

Just as different experts were respected equally, all Korean gods were equally respected in their fields. Some myths, however, attempted to describe, albeit not very clearly, various rank- ings among the gods. Although they appeared as absolute authorities in some oral myths in which they could direct lower-ranked gods, it would not be a true representation of Korean oral myths. It is simply a result of the inclusion of Taoist and Buddhist stories in traditional oral myths.

Therefore, in order to better understand Korean oral myths, it is important to set the premise that the total number of gods is equal to the total number of different types of problems that may occur in everyday living situations, i. Therefore, Korean gods are qualified to solve 00 Prelims KM: That is the limit and the boundary of Korean gods. Korean gods do not demand or request a human to be a god.

Gods in Korean oral myths always kept their distance until they heard humans crying-out for help. However, they expected to be treated well if they were called upon for help. Korean gods required rewards as much as they provided mercies. In other words, Korean gods turned into either good sprits or evil sprits depending on how they were treated.

How fair they were! Korean gods did not have a hierarchy as did Greek gods, but they possessed their own special fields that they fiercely defended when their authority was challenged. Furthermore, Korean gods either rewarded people or punished people based on how they were treated.
