I know I’m 2 months late for this but since I have the pictures here I’m going to post them anyway.
If you never heard of the Rubber Duck Project before you can click here to read more about it.
Actually the duck came to Vietnam way before Korea, even before I moved to Seoul but it was in Ho Chi Minh City and I didn’t have time to go see it. So once again when it came to Seoul there is no way I would miss it.
They duck stayed at Seoul’s Seokchon Lake for 30 days in the month of October and November. I think I went meet the duck some time around early November when the project was almost ended for Korea stop and there was still so many people. I was hard finding a spot so you can take picture of the duck without random people appearing in it. But in the end I managed to do it, yay me!
I don’t know if it’s the same in other country too, but for Korea they made up a really cute character for the duck. When the duck, for some reasons, was deflated while floating on the lake they posted a message on official twitter said “Don’t worry I just need a little nap”. And then after they got the duck fixed they put a sign near the lake saying “I had enough sleep let’s play!”. Isn’t that cute? It even sounded a lot cuter in Korean!
I heard he(or she?) headed to Shanghai after Korea and then been swept away in recent floods in China, but he will come back soon I believe; he’s a duck; which duck afraid of water, right?
