Descriptions(Languages 2)
  • English(English)
  • Korean(한국어)

The writer is unknown for this classical story from the Joseon dynasty about the love affair between a lady-in-waiting and a young scholar. Although it is common for classical stories of this nature to have a happy end, this story ends with the tragic death of both characters. 

조선시대 작자, 연대미상의 고전소설이다. 작품은 궁녀와 선비의 사랑을 다룬 염정(艶情)소설이다. 고전소설은 대개 행복한 결말로 끝나는 것에 비해 이 작품은 당대에 보기드문 비극적인 사랑을 그리고 있다.
