Haechi-The New Symbol Of Seoul

 When my wife and I first saw this interesting character it puzzled us. It was just sitting on a BROKEN bench all by itself. And we thought: "What is this thing?? Really a yellow vampire gargoyle cartoon like character sitting on a broken bench..." I have been interested in finding out what this is. Well I have found the answer..
It is now the new symbol for Seoul.

Its is actually a fire eating dog.....that is believed to be a guardian against all prejudice and disaster.

It doesn't look like its guarding much......but he is very enthusiastic with his thumbs up!!!

Look closely to see the bench that is clearly falling apart....

SO Put your minds to rest and know that Haechi is making our city a safe and prejudice free......
