So many ideas, but none fit yet... I've been reading a bunch of horror stories to try and inspire me.
Protip: do NOT look up Korean urban legends. I consider myself an avid horror fan, but this gets a hard "NOPE" from me.

I find urban legends from Korea to be a bit dorky and strange. Their culture isn't as overtly vulgar and low-brow as that of the West, and as such, their myths are far less sadistic and violent. I find them to be more mildly creepy in nature. An unsettling, passing thought.
Ghosts in toilets, red ink stealing souls, etc.
There's a more modern urban legend from my hometown. The legend states that a psychotic killer clown named Old Man Webber, stalks the stretch of wooded area behind my old elementary school. According to popular belief, Webber kidnaps children and eats them alive. He was a real person who used to work as a rental clown in the 1970s.
There are many trails around my hometown cutting through the wooded areas. Often as children we'd take some of them as shortcuts. For some reason we'd seem to find random articles of clothing. A sock or two, a shirt, a shoe, etc. Any time you found a piece of clothing, you'd say, "Old Man Webber struck again."
To me, this was more terrifying than any urban legend out of Korea.
