The Cat Choo Choo

I came across this cat, named “Choo Choo,” at a shop in Insa-dong yesterday. I was struck by the mystic look on his face, like a saint looking down on us sadly from the midst of this bacchanalia of consumption. There is a sadness in his eyes that one does not normally see in the products begging to be purchased and bring mindless happiness to consumers.
