“Genuine people” refer to those who are sincere, truthful, kind, and responsible. There are numerous examples of “genuine people” in the stories of “Sanyan,” but, they did not receive enough attention in past studies. This article seeks to examine three stories in “Sanyan” where the character of certain people is clearly recognized as being “genuine.” In this article, I will trace not only how these vernacular novellas followed the destiny of these genuine people by reflecting upon the meaning of existence, but also how they escape from their miserable circumstances and build a happy life. In having a positive attitude and the ability to stay happy, the stories of these genuine people turn out to have happy endings. These stories are in fact all based on the idea of “universal justice” and this is expressed through the narration of happiness fables.
