A Chinese man and his four-year-old son are apparently stuck in South Korea because his son used his old man's passport as a drawing book.

Seriously. While on holidays, the kid started doodling over his Dad's passport, decorating it with human-ish and animal-ish figures, a lot of scribbles and some added flair. Cute!

The boy even added a beard and accentuated some features on his dad's face! This kid's going to be a star, if he can ever make it home.

Metro UK says that the dad is now stuck in South Korea now because of "unrecognisable documentation" and that it's unlikely he'll be able to travel back home to China as originally scheduled.

But the photo could very well be a hoax, according to, which notes that a four-year-old does not draw that well and there is no smearing of the ink.
