Hodori

“Hodori”, the mascot of the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul, portrays the friendly side of the tiger, a creature present in many Korean legends. The mascot's name was chosen from a list of 2,295 names submitted by the general public.

The “Ho” in “"Hodori” derives from the Korean word for “tiger” (“horangi”), and“"Dori” is a common masculine diminutive. The Olympic rings adorn Hodori’s neck, and he also sports a “Sangmo”, a hat worn in a traditional Korean farm dance. The streamer on his hat is in the shape of the letter “S”, standings for “Seoul”.

Seoul also had a female mascot, but Hodori the tiger captured the spotlight, and his female counterpart, “Hosuni”, was seldom seen.
