These two are based on Korean Ghosts, Taejagui 태자귀 and Setani 새타니. Taejagu a girl, and Setani a boy. Their souls are bonded to objects (usually a silver bell) by a shaman and used to predict fortune and the future.

The soul of a starved child is usually the best so children were often kidnapped and killed to be created. Usually the child is locked up in a large pot with no food. When the child is exhausted with hunger and dehydration  the shaman brings food and the moment they reach for it, they cut off the index finger to bind their soul. After the child dies, they chop up the body into 48 pieces, put them in a box for 99 days and will be able to control the soul.

The last 태자귀 was made in 1976.
