SEOUL: 1600 Pandas World Tour Arrives

The adorable paper mache pandas have arrived in Seoul as their third stop in Asia after previous residencies in Taipei and Hong Kong. The touring pandas are part of an art project to raise the awareness of environment issues by World Wildlife Federation (WWF) and French artist Paulo Grangeon, who hand crafted 1600 pandas – the number of living pandas left in the wild – in various shapes and sizes with recycled paper mache. Starting from May 23, the pandas will be conquering several local landmarks including Sejeong Center, Seoul Plaza, DDP and N Seoul Tower. So keep your eyes open and cameras ready! – Maria Mao Cui
