    “Seoul City Wall Built with Tiger Stone” is about the Inwangsan tiger and the tiger rock in our folktale and the stories behind the building of the fortress wall at the beginning of the Joseon Dynasty.

    The building of the city wall continued to be delayed due to a tiger that used to come down to villages by nightfall to take people away. People were scared, and their livelihoods suffered. It turned out that the tiger, too, had a difficulty. In the end, the people and the tiger listened to each other and found a way to coexist peacefully.
