Podori is the mascot for the Korean National Police Agency. He has been presented on Korea & Animation before. Here is what has been learned about him since then. This sticker was placed by the Seoul Police Department inside of a subway station. Look very closely at the lower right-hand corner and you'll see the signature of Lee Hyeon Se. Lee, often upheld as the most famous comic book artist in Korea, apparently designed Podori. Here are some close-ups, insights, and translations from that sticker: It appears Podori can patrol Seoul apartments by flying around with a Doraemon-like helicopter cap. Here he is observing how careless Seoul citizens are. Podori: Wow, they don't even bother identifying their guests before opening the door!
Podori: Milk and newspapers are stacked up outside. They must have been gone for a long time.
Podori: They don't turn off the light while out at night!
Podori is a very respondent police officer.Podori: Freeze!
Crook: Oh! That was so fast!
Woman: Oh my! It's only 3 minutes after I reported this!Podori isn't afraid to put troublemakers in their place. Angry Wife: Beat him! Spank him harder! Because he's an alcoholic!
Upset Daughter: I hate my dad!
Sound Effects: Spank! Spank!
Watch out criminals, because Podori is watching you even more closely! Podori: Big ears to better hear citizens.
Podori: Big eyes to better catch thieves with.
Crook: Argh! It's Podori!
