Korean Mythology – Two Suns, Two Moons
Posted 11 months ago and submitted by Evelyne Park | Share link: http://illo.cc/87885

This illustration got finished on a national holiday here in Korea, which felt fitting.

A creation myth:

Once, there were two suns in the sky during the day, and the Earth was too hot. Two moons in the sky at night, and the Earth was too cold.

So the god Taebyeol took his two arrows and shot one of each out of the sky. They shattered into uncountable pieces, now illuminating the night sky as stars.

I really enjoy the visuals of that myth and wanted to show Taebyeol in a calm moment, reflecting on what had to be done, even if it meant the loss of two beautiful creations.
