This paper is about the continuation and variation of typical Korean ghost image, Kushin and Dokkaebi, Korean college students have. Most of ghost images in Korean college student’s mind are females with long hair in their white gown; another ghost image, Dokkaebi, is male. In the past, these ghost images have been transmitted orally or through traditional literature from generation to generation. But throughout this study, I found that due to TV, films and other media being the center of the public culture, most of the students described ghost having different images from typical ones. Nevertheless, dreaming of ghost Korean only dream typical Korean ghost, a rarely dream of the nontraditional ghost. It can say that a common ghost image in a race doesn’t change in a short time.
