Molang is a lovely chubby, cute adorable ‘pig rabbit’ that invented by once was a university student in South Korea, Yoon Hye Ji. At first, she made this loving super chubby bunny to represent sticky Korean rice. Now its become no.1 popular character in South Korea.
The word 몰랑 Molang comes from the Korean 몰라 Molla/mola, which means ‘I don’t know’. Which often you seen on k-drama, when a girl or adult female wants to show some aegyo (cute ways to talk).
Thats how the words Molang came up, cause it sounds so adorable and girly. This character shows in its every Molang design.
New Update: 2017
I just watched Yoon HyeJi interview recently, and she said something about Molang word came from “mallang~ mallang” in Korean word that has meaning ~ squeezy, soft, pluffy.
Very sorry if my first information was not accurate, as I also read it from some Japanese girl’s blog long time ago. It was not easy back then to find the Molang story.
One other thing, there are people who often asked me, if Molang a girl or a boy? According the Yoon, she said she deliberately not put a gender on Molang, when she invented the character, so it will be flexible to dress up Molang as boy or girl. But now (2017) she said that she prefer the main Molang character as a boy.
From stuff dolls, school stationary, bags, bedding accessories, SNS and Kakaotalk theme, bags, glassware, t-shirt, milk to even face lotion, you name it~ this Molang taking over the world of cuteness significantly with its brand. And no one seems mind about it, as who can resist its cutest charm^^
And today Molang is acquired by some company in French and become a cute favorite character on short kids movie that you can also enjoy in these videos HERE
But if you ask my personal opinion, although all the videos are cute, I am regretting the fact that the target market for Molang are focusing too much on little children. 😦
Whilst we are in Korea, we as teenager and adult likes to have Molang as part of character that console our life also. And I really missed seeing Molang bunny on Korean Drama.
