In Korean mythology, some creatures bring luck to the one who touches, crosses, or even catches sight of them.
The snake, when it shows signs of strangeness, is one of them. Indeed, it is then being considered as a dragon to-be. Made in South Korea during the year of the Snake, these “lucky charm-companions”, “peculiar siamese friends” or “monsters for company” have to be worn together, on both of their owner’s wrists, in order for them to be “well-surrounded”.
