The Old Monk

On the left the old monk from Hahoi Byeolshingut Talnoli smells the urine of the pretty young woman and is overcome with desire. In the center the old monk of Goseong Ogwangdae dances, wordlessly trying to impress a young woman. On the right the old monk from Yangju Byeolsandae glares at the audience, daring anyone to steal his young ladies away.
