Breaking news in the world of mythical creatures. The Korean Central News Agency has reported that archaeologists in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea have confirmed the existence of the “lair of a unicorn” ridden by King Tongmyong. KCNA reports:
The lair is located 200 meters from the Yongmyong Temple in Moran Hill in Pyongyang City. A rectangular rock carved with words ‘Unicorn Lair’ stands in front of the lair. The carved words are believed to date back to the period of Koryo Kingdom (918-1392).
Well … if the sign says, then it must be true! Or not. When I was a kid I made a sign that said “Unicorn Lair” and put it outside my bedroom. There were no unicorns inside. Make of my anecdote what you will. [NPR]
