Son-Gon

Korean - Son of a nobleman. He dreamed about a heavenly maiden who later became his wife and they had two children. While Son-Gon was away from home, a servant-girl named Mewol, who had been Son-Gon's mistress, told his parents that his wife had been unfaithful to him. They treated her so cruelly that she killed herself with a dagger but, though her spirit returned to heaven, her body remained as fresh as ever and, when Mewol confessed her wicked lies and repented, Son-Gon's wife was allowed to return to her husband. Occasionally called Son-Gon.
