The picture belongs to a Korean legend, legends I'll post weekly (if I have time XD) and illustrate with a famous Korean!
I made it with PScs5 and the reference of BEAST Gikwang ^^
Our first story comes from South Korea Southeast, from a small village in Busan, GoeJeong where listen to stories related to a mysterious tiger that haunts in their land since immemorial time. Legend talk about a man who lived there, his name was Kim Sondal, courageous skillful craftsman. In one of his trips around the region he found a book of spells that change his life dramatically.
Discovered a spell that allowed him to become a tiger, and in that guise every night go away from his wife and into the woods scaring the dogs of the villages. So great was his passion for the book of spells that there was not one night that turned into a tiger not to go out to explore the mountains after reciting the magic words. But his wife, night after night grew concerned about the sick passion of her husband.
One evening just at the moment Sondal Kim was transformed into a tige , his wife found the place where he hide the strange book and taking advantage of his absence, threw the book into the fire turning to ashes the spell her husband need to return to being human, reason why he never became human again.
Kim Sondal stalked the village for weeks trying to feed livestock and seeking a solution to your problem, unfortunately the flames ended his only hope. Such was his hunger that eventually killed his best friends The inhabitants of nearby villages were proposed to end this situation and dozens of traps tended to upset tigre, traps were useless because that tiger was more than an animal.
Seeing that his instinct was uncontrollable and that the life of his wife could end up endangering the tiger suddenly disappeared. Many say they finally fell into some traps designed by farmers, others say he died alone in the forest but few knew that tiger, before man, still alive in the mountains away from what was once their home, away from something far more precious than ever he could appreciate.
They say many nights down the mountains to walk by the remnants of that forgotten village and that their human eyes always cry.
