Description:

Shamanism continues as the 'animist' religion of Korea and has influenced other religions to have arrived in the region. Shamanism continues as an everyday presence in Korean culture and, in turn, has drawn from other religions. It offers an interesting example of religious syncretism and the continuing presence of the past in a very modern and progressive Korean present.
