Some Korean folklores with tigers that I remember:
1) The story of the sun and the moon: A mother sold rice cakes in town as a living in the day and come back home. The mother had two children, an older boy and a younger girl. On her way back from the town, she would always confronted a tiger who was always hungry. He promised to spare her life if she gave him a rice cake instead. One day, she had no rice cakes to give so the tiger ate her. Then he took her clothes, dressing up as the lady and went to her home to eat her children. The tiger knocked on the door, asking for the children to let their “mother” in. The daughter believed so, but the son knew better. “Our mother doesn’t sound like that.” “Our mother’s hands aren’t as big as yours.” The more he got outwitted, the more the tiger grew impatient. He barged in saying he was here to eat them anyways. The children ran. They hid high in the tree. They mocked the tiger, “bet you can’t get up here, can you?” The tiger asked, “Oh dear children, how ever did you get up there?” The boy replied, “We soaked our hands in oil to climb up of course.” The tiger fell for the trick and continued to ridiculously climb and slip on the tree. The girl giggled at the sight and said, “Silly tiger! We climbed up by making steps off the tree trunk with axe.” The tiger immediately did such, even more determined to eat the children. Even more scared than before, the boy prayed to the god of the sky, asking for help, a rope that would lead them to the sky. The prayer was heard and the children climbed all the way up into the night sky. The tiger asked for the same, except he was given something different: an old, battered rope which broke before he could ever reach the children. He fell to his death. Whereas the children became the sun and the moon.
2) A child was crying. And a tiger heard the boy’s tears. A little boy would be the perfect dinner, he thought as he approached the cottage where the cries came from. Once near the fence, the tiger heard the grandmother speak. “If you don’t stop crying, a tiger will come to eat you!” The boy cried even louder. The tiger boasted in himself how much of a fearful being he was. Then he heard the grandma speak again. “If you don’t stop crying, no dried persimmons for you!” The cries stopped. The tiger flinched. “What is this dried persimmons this grandma speaks of? How scary must this be to stop the boy’s tears?” Out of fear the tiger backtracked, intending not to meet this “dried persimmons” animal or whatever unholy being it must be. Instead he headed towards the barn, deciding a cow would suffice as a meal for tonight. But alas, tonight there was a thief in the barn. The thief jumped onto the tiger’s back, thinking it was the cow set loose. The tiger panicked. ‘What is strangling my neck? Oh no it must be the scary dried persimmons!’ When the tiger started to growl in pain, the thief then realized his mistake. He jumped off the tiger’s back to live another day, while the said tiger ran back to mountains running away from the “dried persimmons” beast.
3) A lumberjack had finished chopping wood for the day. He was about to leave the woods of the mountains until suddenly, a loud roar pierced out of the wilderness. “You poor unfortunate human! Today you will die, but you will have the honor to be my feast!” The tiger roared loudly. The lumberjack shivered out of fear, but used his wits to get him out of this situation safely. “Oh dear brother! We’ve missed you!” Brother? The tiger was confused. “Do not dare to trick me, human!” The tiger growled. The lumberjack continued his guise. “I speak the truth when I say this is not a lie. Long ago, my parents have told me the story of my older brother, even before I was born. The three had come to the woods, but when it was time to go back home, he had disappeared. You may have changed appearances all these years, but it is you! Mother would be utterly happy!” The tiger scratched his head. Perhaps this lumberjack was truly his brother. What happened to their father, the tiger inquired. “After years of crying in agony, father passed away but mother still lives with me. Come! She will finally shed happy tears when she sees you.” Intrigued by this sudden revelation, the tiger followed. And much to his surprise, he was greeted by the old woman the way he was told he would be. He does not recall this woman’s face at all, but he felt something in his heart. Perhaps, it was true. Perhaps, with the years in the mountains, he had forgotten who he was. But now the tiger found his family. In the following the tiger regularly stopped by the cottage to drop off some wild meat he had hunted like a real son would to a mother and brother. More winters after, the old woman had passed away. The lumberjack gave her a proper funeral and buried her in the mountains. Though he had not seen it himself, the mountains echoed with what could only be the cries of a tiger.
