This paper provides a discussion of how three works of art exhibit values and moral ethics of Korean culture, including loyalty, honor, and courage. The works of art are Cho Cong-Rae's "Playing with Fire" and the films "Joint Security Area," directed by Chan-wook Park and "Chunyang" directed by Kwon-taek Im.

From the Paper:

"The Chunhyang myth in Korean culture might be equated to the romantic love story of Romeo and Juliet for Western audiences. In the myth, the elements of love, loyalty and courage are fully embraced, but so are traditional Korean views of women as submissive and demure, which is what makes them ideally beautiful. Because it illustrates the values that are most cherished by Korean culture, the myth of Chunhyang continues to be a part of Korean popular culture."
