The Korean lesser dragon, resembling gigantic serpents. They are proto-dragons that must survive a thousand years in order to become fully-fledged dragons.
Whereas most dragons in European mythology are linked to the elements of fire and destruction, dragons in Korean mythology (and most East Asian folklore) are primarily benevolent beings related to water and agriculture, often considered bringers of rain and clouds. Hence, many Korean dragons are said to reside in rivers, lakes, oceans, or even deep mountain ponds. It differs from its Chinese dragon counterpart in that it develops a longer beard.
