A Giant from China and originally from North Korea. He was so tall that he blocked out the sun and was feared by the local people. He was thus banished to the mountains in the far north. There he lived happily and after many years he had consumed all the animals of the forests and had drunk all the rivers dry. He then ventured east until he came to the ocean. He drank from this but fell ill. His corpse laid there and became the Begdu San mountains and the waters released from his body became the rivers Tumun, Yalu and Yong Dam.
