This story is about two brothers Heungbu and Nolbu. Heungbu, the younger brother is kind while Nolbu, the older brother, is cruel. After their parents death Nolbu kicks Heungbu out of the house and ignores him when asked for help. In the story Nolbu learns what it means to be compassionate and generous. The younger brother Heungbu had a kind heart, but the older brother Nolbu was very greedy and crancky. Nolbu was always planning.

So Nolbu hated Heungbo more. Time passed and they grew up into adults, and they married. Nolbu had one child, but Heungbu had many.

So take your family and get out right now! How can this be? Where will we go now? Have you been well? Your foolish little brother has come to get food. Leave right now! While the helpless Heungbu turned around, he came out and stopped by the kitchen.

Here you are, rice! Heungbu, with no strength, returned home. Looking at his expression the children cried. There were baby swallows living in the nest. One day the baby swallows living in the nest were crying. Looking at the nest, there was a big snake grabbing onto the baby swallows in order to eat them. At that time, one of the swallows fell from the nest.

Some days later the swallow could fly in the sky again. These must be really good people. You should repay the favor they did for you right away!

When it became spring again, the swallows flew back. Before they knew it, the seed sprouted, and each day as it was growing bigger and bigger. The vine covered the roof and the round gourd opened. Look at that gourd. Today lets get look at the gourds. Inside the gourd is rice? In the third gourd, silk poured out from inside.

How can this happen? Come and see me! Have you been well during this time? The truth is I get it man. Take these treasures and this silk with you as you go. Quickly bring the medicine and bandages. Bring us back one seed from Gangnam.

Nolbu planted the seed and it grew. While the vines grew rapidly the gourds became ripe and desirable. Nolbu picked three gourds and started sawing. What is this? S-Someone help! What happened? Brother, come live together in our house.

I was wrong all this time. Please forgive me. Nolbu is always mean to others and looking for a way to get more wealth, but in the end suffers from his actions and learns his lessons. Heungbu is kind and always helps others and is therefore rewarded for his good actions, teaching the kids who read this story the importance of "doing the right thing". Around the world helping others is a common notion, but in Asia culture helping your family when they are in trouble is particularly stressed.

The role of the younger brother is that of always deffering to whatever the older one says, which is why Nolbu was able to kick Heungbu out of the house without much of a fight even though they were both legitimately owners of their fathers things. Posted by.
