by Micha F. Lindemans
In ancient Korea, he is the sun god and founder of the realm of light. Palk is the personification of all that is light, good, and beneficial. The opposite force is Kud, the dark one. Palk's cult included sacrifices that took place on mountaintops and which were strictly oriented towards the east.

The Koreans regard themselves to be the sons of Palk.
