When I was a child my father was stationed in South Korea for a year. While over there he sent me an old book that I think used to belong to a library over there. The book wasn't tall, but actually a bit wider than most books, with a blue cover that had like a gold diamond pattern on it.
He releases the little white snake into the wild where eventually the Gods find the snake and decide to turn her into a beautiful maiden. She then decides to go looking for the boy, and in her journey she meets another woman dressed in jade, they fight for a bit and then become soul-sisters. Together they continue the quest to find the school boy, and when they do he is a man and he falls madly in love with the white snake maiden.
I don't remember everything that happens, but I know they have a child, she dies, he gives the child up, I think and he becomes a monk.

I love your story! What wonderful memories you have. thank you so much for sharing.
I buy my used books on line.
amazon.com also has books and you can search for your book. many other book companies use them so a search covers a wide range of book companies who might have your book.
Some of the book companies i listed have a search program and you can search for a book. If it doesn't come up you can put in a request for your book so when/if it does come in, they email you. You have to act fast though if you get an email that your book is in; they sell out fast. I'm not sure exactly which ones do though, sorry. I feel sure amazon.com doesn't have a 'request' feature. But like I said many book companies sell their books through them.
They also have books written in languages other than English.
I believe all of these sites have a rare book and out of print section too.
If I find it i will post it to you.
If you find it, will you post it with the ISBN number, please? I'd love to have a copy too.
I'd search the web and even see if you can find Korean book stores, they must have stores that cater to Korean people. You might even find a translation or you can translate it on line too.
I'm not a computer wizard otherwise I'd give you better advice on searching. I use ask.com where you can pose what you're looking for in the form of a question. 'where can i buy a copy of ....' for example.
Good luck sweetie. I really hope you get lucky and find your treasure. Please keep us posted ok?
