Description: Sok-dam - folk sayings - represent enduring values held throughout all strata of Korean society. Each proverb in this book focuses on a significant folk symbol or belief deeply held by Koreans. In a culture where language ability, particularly taciturnity, is highly respected, proverbs are used as a tool for expressing oneself with grace and style.

Accompanied by glowing illustrations, twenty proverbs are grouped in three themes: character, cooperation and accomplishment, and eating. By reading and understanidng only a few words, the simple elegance of proverbs helps us learn much about Korean culture and langauge.
