The Girl Who Fell Beneath the Sea

Author : Axie Oh

Genre : Fantasy, Young Adult

I spent ten days in Japan and a day in Busan, South Korea this past year and was introduced to the concept of many, many lesser and greater gods, so I was intrigued to read a Korean folktale about the Sea God.

Mina’s brother loves the next beautiful girl, Shim Cheong, who is to be thrown in the sea to serve as the Sea God’s bride, in hopes that she will be chosen to end the deadly storms and floods that erode the land. She believes the Sea God who was once their protector has now cursed them. To save her brother, Mina throws herself into the water in Cheong’s stead.

Set between heaven and earth, Mina finds herself in the Spirit Realm, a magical city of lesser gods and mythical beasts where she finds the Sea God caught in an enchanted sleep. She doesn’t have much time: A human cannot live long in the land of the spirits.
