For Korean, “ChunHyang” was like “Romeo and Juliet”, a well-known traditional love story to everyone. Poor but beautiful ChunHyang fell in love at first sight with Mongryong, who was going to the capital city for scholarly honor and promised Chunhyang that he would live with her forever after his successful. However, the lonely ChunHyang was being asked to be a concubine of a local official. ChunHyang refused and was being punished by flogging. The incredible love story has been passed from generation to generation, and ChunHyang’s unchanging loyalty made her a role model of female.
