    For the 1988 Olympic Games, which was held in an Oriental country, a little tiger designed by Kim Hyun with typical Oriental color was chosen as the mascot, who was named Hodori. Hodori was designed as an amicable tiger, which portrays the friendly and hospitable traditions of the Koreans, and the name Hodori was chosen from 2,295 suggestions sent in by the public. "Ho" is derived from the Korean word for "tiger", and "Dori" is a diminutive for boys in Korea.
