article imageChild draws on dad's passport, dad can't leave South Korea

Seoul - A four-year-old Chinese boy managed to get hold of his father's passport, and apparently thought it needed an artist's touch. Unfortunately for the father, the budding Rembrandt has left him stranded in South Korea for unrecognizable documentation.
The father, known only by media resources as Chen, had taken his family on a trip to South Korea when he left his passport out for his son's eager hands to find.
The toddler found a black marker and covered the pages of his father's passport with various doodles including landscapes, animals, and flowers. He also altered his father's photo by adding a beard, a lion's mane, and darkening the eyes.
Chen now faces a serious dilemma as South Korean officials have so far refused to accept his heavily decorated passport as valid travel documentation, and have told him it is unlikely he will be able to return to China with his family.
Chen posted pictures of his altered passport on China's social networking site, Weibo, asking for help or advice.
The story and the image have gone viral, but there is still no word on whether or not Chen will get to go home any time soon.
