While its story is set in a time of tremendous historical and political change, The Tale of Choe Cheok is not a story that concerns itself with the rise and fall of states or the challenges facing societies. Instead, it focuses on individual experiences. In short, the ultimate human values that motivate these characters to survive are love between the male and female protagonists and family bonds in happiness. The first half of this work is a story of romance, in which Choe Cheok and Ok-yeong overcome various difficulties to be united in marriage. In the latter half, families scattered by two wars are reunited. The reunion occurs because of the characters’ full-hearted effort, for they do not even know if their loved ones are alive, and with the help of the uncanniest of fate.
