Korean Dokkaebi Goblin Hanbok/Wild

Dokkaebi 도깨비 - Korean Goblin. ("Doh-Kay-Bee") Dokkaebi are the mischevious spirits of many Korean folktales. They are known to have many varying qualities that has made their appearances throughout history and myth tough to pin down to a single visual language. Dokkaebi are most famous for carrying magical bangmangi clubs that allow them to summon or create items and for having an awe-inspiring appearance and wild look to them. Some dokkaebi love to wrestle and may have only one foot, and others still like to play tricks on humans or reward them for doing good deeds. Sometimes being friends with one changes you into a dokkaebi yourself! They have been described as wearing animal skins or traditional hanbok clothes.
Regardless of the tale, dokkaebi are a cultural icon unique to Korea, which made them a target during Japanese occupation when the identity of the dokkaebi was almost overwritten by that of the Japanese Oni. Because of this, many contemporary illustrations of them over the past century depict dokkaebi with a horn or multiple horns and other more wild features. Today, many Korean artists work valiantly to interpret the core elements of dokkaebi through artifacts and stories to reclaim the visual heritage of Korean goblins.
Not being Korean myself, my interpretation here is inspired by the cuter appearances of dokkaebi in pop culture, with a wild spiky hair style like the one worn by Dokkaebi in the game Lost Saga. I've created two variations of the mini: The first featuring hanbok - a jeogori top and chima skirt with a donggeom bronze sword, and the second featuring the infamous bangmangi club and animal furs. I picked longer pointier ears and tiny feet to emphasize a more fantastical appearance, but this was a personal stylization choice.

This model is sized at 28mm scale and can be used in TTRPG play alongside most other standard fantasy gaming minis.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
