Tiger Tiger, Burning Bright
As we reported back in March, KOMSCO released the highly anticipated silver Chiwoo Cheonwange and Korean Tiger medals. These two icons are synonymous with the Korean Peninsula. They are deeply rooted in the Korean culture and lore. The tiger appears to have first been tied to Korea since a Dangun legend. The legend spoke of the founding of the kingdom of Korea. In the myth, a tiger and a bear wished to become human beings. The bear ate mugwort and garlic for 100 days. And, this turned her into a woman. The tiger, on the other hand, did not withstand such an ordeal and ran off. Tigers have continued to be a popular presence in Korean culture. It was the official mascot of the 1988 Olympics in Seoul.
Chiwoo Cheonwang was a tribal leader and a significant figure in Chinese and Korean history.
Chiwoo is a legendary figure and his accomplishments great. Although he was a historical figure, as time passed, his legend grew. Grew to the point where he had acquired magical powers and accomplished impossible feats. He had even developed into deity as the “God of War.”
