They are a white rabbit in a round shape. Molangs cheeks are a blushy pink and they've got black button eyes. Their ears are the ones of your everyday rabbit and as expected, Molang has got the typical little, round feet and arms that you find on every round mascot character.
The word Molang comes from the Korean 몰라 Molla/mola, which literally translates to "I don't know". Hye Ji said that the name 'Molang' came from "mallang~ mallang" in Korean, which means squeezy, soft, and fluffy.
Molang was invented by a university student in South Korea, Yoon Hye Ji on the platform KakaoTalk.
Molang was created from her scribble when she wanted to make her own mascot character. However, someone who had 'a rabbit character business' showed interest in her design, and that is how Molang appeared and became commercialised, having been turned into the main mascot of the Molang original Netflix series.
