Heungbu And Nolbu

When their parents left a large sum of money to the brothers, the greedy Nol-Bu seized all of the inheritance by force and shared nothing with Heung-Bu.
  2. 3. Although Heung-Bu suffered from poverty, he was always kind to everyone. One day, Heung-Bu found a wounded swallow. He took care of this swallow during the winter time. The following spring, the swallow brought a pumpkin seed to Heung-Bu for thanks.
