Say hi to Ddong Chimi (똥치미), a children’s mascot from Korea that might just be the grossest kid’s character ever. Ddong Chimi’s main characteristics are his runny nose, prominent nipples, and the big brown pile of poop on his head. That last part is the most important. Ddong translates to “dung” in English, if you are very very polite. Google Translate is not that polite. Indeed, Ddong Chimi is mostly just thrilled about the agricultural properties of dung, as is shown by his best buddy Ddalki (a strawberry) and his enemy Ddongpari (a dung fly). Ddong Chimi is a creation of the SSamji company in Insadong, Korea.
Here’s Ddong Chimi just chillin’ in his natural habitat.

When Jung Juha ate one of Ddong Chimi’s Dung Buns (똥빵 – DdongPpang) on Infinite Challenge, the craze for Ddong Chimi brand treats reached a fever pitch!
They come in all sizes. These are pretty cute!
Actually, these look really good.
Cheers to Ddong Chimi!
