Hey JJ!
I've been doing allot of Research recently. And, I found that wikipedia lists the 麒麟 in Korean as being pronounced "Girin".

Do you know how they might spell this in Korean?
And, if you do, could you get any tales or stories of the Korean versions???

Actually it is probably spelled like that. Girin would seem like a Korean word. Pronounced Gee-reen. I could write out the Korean symbols, but that probably wouldn't do much in helping you.

Also, I know the Chinese culture depicts it more as a mythical beast, but to my knowledge the Kirn in Korean culture is like a spirit entity very similar to the whole "Beast Master" thing. Kirin is a "man" who can't be seen by common folk and who helps people by "slaying the beasts" so to speak.

Well, Qilin are a very high ranking god type like the Dragon. Very lucky, and good omens. There's many many different versions of them... aperrently after Admiral Zheng He made his expedition durring the Ming Dynasty and spread their culture the Qilin has gone through many other cultural changes when Chinese ideals were introduced. There are even Persian versions, and Thailand versions.
