Never heard him called that! He's known as the grandfather to me. And yes, he is in Korea... but where in Korea is he unique to?

Described as "Rock Grandfather", these statues are said to be all over the island of Jeju.

By the way, that last post wasn't Katie's, it was mine. She had forgotten to log out on the laptop when she last used it.

Also known as Cheju or Cheju-do Island. Very pretty place. I went on an MWR 3 day trip there when I was stationed in Korea. Georgeous palaces, pretty nature and great, friendly people. So glad I went on that trip.

Take it away Buck!
