“Mascot Mania!” is a series which features some of the “mascots” I’ve seen in Korea. Unlike in the United States, mascots in Korea are not limited to schools and sports teams. You’ll find mascots/characters for just about everything in Korea, from products, organizations and even cities! Clearly, ”cuteness” is a cultural value that reigns supreme in this country~~
Hmm…I can hardly imagine a cute cartoon Jesus character being featured as prominently as these Buddha/monk characters! You can see these cuties everywhere in the spring during the celebration of Buddha’s birth.
