This research has two goals. First, to describe the puppet play Ggogdu Gagsi which belongs to the people of Korea. Secondly, to find out the value of justice in the puppet play Ggogdu Gagsi. This study used a qualitative approach, the data were obtained from recordings of the puppet play Ggogdu Gaksi, supported by literary studies. The results of the analysis of the value of justice in the Ggogdu Gaksi puppet play are as follows: First, there is a violation of distributive justice, namely fair distribution. The example for this is Park Cheomji who divides wealth unfairly between his two wives. Second, the feodal system of society with upper-class rulers often violates justice by committing oppression and cruelty, as symbolized by a snake named Isimi that preys on the Park Cheomji family. Third, the feodal system with upper-class rulers also often violates justice by committing greed and arbitrariness like Yeangno scene. Fourth, the feodal system of upper-class rulers breeds degradation for human dignities, which shown in the scene of Park Cheomji being looked down upon by the Governor of Pyongan.
