Eun Ji Won becomes first Korean celebrity to have a character modeled after him in ‘World of Warcraft’

Eun Ji Won will have a character modeled after him in the fourth expansion pack of ‘World of Warcraft‘.

Blizzard Entertainment announced that ‘Eun-Choding’, modeled after Eun Ji Won, will be an NPC in the expansion pack ‘Mists of Pandaria‘. Blizzard Entertainment stated, “The ‘Eun Choding’ NPC was created because of the Korean players’ continuous support of ‘World of Warcraft’. We wanted to provide something fun that users can enjoy. ‘Eun-Choding’ is the first NPC that will be modeled after a Korean celebrity. As fitting of the ‘Eun-Choding’ name, he’s a young Pandaren that greets players near the cabbage patch.
When the ‘Eun-Choding’ NPC is talked to, he replies, “I like to travel for 1 Night and 2 Days. During the travels, sleeping outside is especially fun!“, “I was really good at dancing. Wanna see?“, and even sings a line from Eun Ji Won’s hit song “Adios“, singing, ”Why baby why~ Why baby why~ I’m gonna be a singer when I grow up!“.
Eun Ji Won’s label said, “Eun Ji Won has always enjoyed playing ‘World of Warcraft’. In September, he has even appeared in the promotional videos when ‘World of Warcraft: Mist of Pandaria’ first came out.
