Mythical founder of Korean race

According to the Korean 신화 (myth), a tiger and a bear wanted to become humans. The god told them to stay in a cave for a hundred days eating only garlic. The bear stayed long enough and become a woman but the tiger could not wait. Later the bear became a woman and married the god's son. She gave birth to a son, who is mythical founder of Korean race, Tankun.
