This love story is part of a collection of Korean folk tales published with the hope that foreigners, especially children, will gain a better understanding of Korean culture. Kyonu, a farmer and Chingnyo, a weaver fall in love and marry. As newlyweds they neglect their duties. Kyonu forgets to plow his fields and Chingnyo stops weaving cloth. The people grow hungry and cold. The King of the Stars banishes them to the opposite ends of the kingdom with the Milky Way river dividing them. Once a year they are allowed to meet on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month with the magpies and crows forming a bridge over the Milky Way. However, when they part their tears flood the earth, hence, the traditional heavy rains that fall on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month.
