Korean geomancy folktale shows the various meanings of the earth as ‘a place’，which reflects traditional topophilia in Korean culture. The earth in Korean culture was believed that it had the same value as 'wealth, rank and fame', 'succession to the family’ and 'promotion of virtue and reproval of vice’ by the successors, because the earth considered as propitious gives them the achievement related to the previous values. This kind of achievement is possible due to the mediator such as the acquirement of the propitious place. Korean geomancy folktale, therefore, is based on the topophilia of the earth.
Generally the narrative of Korean geomancy folktale consists of the opposites； Unversed content’ in the first half and ‘posed content’ in the second half. This opposites between them are including the inverse of characters called a receiver and a donor, and narrative contents of the first half are the lacked situation like poverty, humbleness and a family line break. And those of the second half are accomplished situation like wealth, rank and carrying on a family line. The narrative unit called the acquirement of the propitious earth completes important part in changing the lacked situation into the accomplished one. That proves the topophilia of the earth is structural principle sustaining the narrative of Korean geomancy folktale.
The earth is endowed with a special meaning in Korean geomancy folktale where the earth, which is an abstract ‘space’，is changed into a concrete ‘place’. When the earth that affects directly on lives and deaths can get a certain meaning, our lives and deaths can get a special meaning, too.
In addition, Korean geomancy folktale reflects the thoughts about 'wealth, rank and fame’ emphasizing on filial piety, accumulation of virtuous deeds. It is related to the fact that the ethics of Korean society is the essence of geomancy. The thoughts about filial piety and wealth, rank and fame, therefore, reflected in Korean geomancy folktale haven’t lost its importance in the modern society, in which traditional value system and the ethic of Korean society fade.
