Chumong

Korean - Son of Yuhwa. He was born from an egg produced by Yuhwa who had been raped by Hemosu, who claimed to be the son of a god. He grew very quickly and became a skilled archer, but his progress aroused envy among others at the king's court, where he had been raised, so he fled with three friends, Hyobbu, Mari and Zoi, to set up his own kingdom. The fishes built a bridge to allow them to cross a river and so escape their pursuers. They were met by three wise men, Muggo, Mugol and Zesa, who helped Chumong set up his new realm. He later took the name Ko. At times, known as Chumong, Zu-mong or Zu-mong.
