SOUTH KOREA –  Most parents encourage their children to be creative, but sometimes it is just better to leave the creativity at home.

A four-year-old Chinese boy found some paper and began to draw while on a family trip to South Korea. Unfortunately, the paper turned out to be his father’s passport.

The father was left with drawings of people, animals, and a re-imagined version of his own photo.  Unfortunately, border officials determined that the photo no longer matched the man.

Dad is now stuck in South Korea because of his defaced documentation, and authorities have warned it is likely he won’t be able to travel home with his son, and the rest of his party.
