The Pyongyang faith is a religion that prays for longevity, which is believed to be transmitted from China during the Heian period. Every night on the 60th day of the night of Shen Shen (the date given by the zodiac), a third-placed insect lurking in a person while sleeping, ascends to the sky, and tells the Emperor the evil of the person Because the emperor was told to decide the life of the person according to the weight of his sin, he spends the day without sleep to prevent Mitaka from escaping.
