Korea as a Tiger

Koreans tell me that Korea is shaped like a tiger. Their national animal is the tiger and a lot of their folk tales involve tigers. However, to me Korea looks like a rabbit. I think that's what the Japanese said during the colonial period and so a lot of Koreans are very sensitive about it. But if you take more than a fleeting glimpse, then that's what you see. Nothing wrong with looking like a rabbit! New Zealand looks like an upside down boot that has broken in half...

San Nakji for President!
