A common trope seen in many Korean martial arts stories is the existence of Orthodox/Unorthodox sects; or Righteous/Justice, Demonic and Evil Sects. One thing that tripped me is how 'demonic' sects are different from 'evil' sects, when same have the similar sounding negative connotations.

What exactly are the difference between these terms in context of Korean culture/history? Is it purely ideological/political distinction?
