The Nicholalala webtoon is a mostly fictional comic series on WEBTOONS that explores some Korean folklore and is set in the Korean countryside.
This is the final episode in this mini story within the webtoon. Hugh actually suggested this classic Korean folklore for these episodes. It’s one I encountered early on in our relationship (the story, not it actually happening!). Sometimes Hugh is wary about cutting nails at night and sometimes doesn’t care. But it is something well known in folklore. It can also vary from region to region.
When we lived in the Korean countryside I encountered a lot of folklore woven into people’s everyday lives. Hugh has a lot of suggestions for me, so stay tuned for more episodes like this.
