Word of the day: 권선징악

Since we’re on a roll with the words related to folktales, let’s take one more:

권선징악 ~ promotion of virtue and reproval of vice/rewarding the good and punishing the evil.

권선징악하다 ~ to encourage the good and punish the evil.

It can of course also be used it in other contexts, but it is often used when talking about folktales.
