Bang Jeong-hwan’s 117th Birthday: Google Doodle
Google Doodle is Celebrating Bang Jeong-hwan’s 117th Birthday by posting a beautiful Google Logo on its homepage.

In 1923 Korea, children were treated as 'lesser' adults. Bang Jeong-hwan, a children's writer from Seoul, changed all that when he invented the term eorini, a more respectful term for children than the one commonly used. He started a magazine by the same name, to spread the notion that children should be celebrated. Today's Doodle depicts Jeong-hwan flying through the sky, holding a copy of the magazine he founded, symbolizing his commitment to championing the children of Korea.

Happy 117th birthday, Bang Jeong-hwan!
