PARIS: A giggly white rabbit called Molang who loves nothing more than cuddles and helping his friends has become a global children's megastar. "Molang" now shows in 190 countries including China and has been picked up by both Disney and Netflix. "Molang is a big round rabbit, who is extremely positive, imaginative and enthusiastic," said Marie-Caroline Villand, who developed the animated character from the emoji created by Yoon Hye-Ji. Millimages have high hopes for Molang franchising with hundreds of "super soft" toys of the rabbit and his friends decorating their studio. McDonald's have also adopted the character for their children's menus as have Korean railways for their express trains.
