Tiger 호랑이 (Ho / Rang / Ee)
It word of the day time again and for the second day of animal week here at the Fresh Korean Institute we have chosen Tiger (호랑이). In the past there were a small population of Siberian tigers in South Korea, however the last one was killed in the 1920’s and since then no wild tigers have been seen in South Korea. They have a tiny population in the far north of North Korea, and there has been evidence in the past of Tigers living in the DMZ.
