Spider-Man Hung Out To Dry – National News July 2014

National News July 2014


The superhero Spider-Man recently took a loss, having to be removed from the Lotte Shopping Center in Busan due to his, um, size. Hanging suspended through the strength of his webs upside down for nearly a year, he drew complaints for what appeared to be an erection of superhero proportions. The statue, located close to a children’s playground, was created by the artist Yoo Eun-suk who stated that the reason for the misunderstanding was that he wanted to “depict naturally what happens in the morning without lies.”  Really?! Told to either modify Peter Parker’s “peter” or remove it, Yoo decided to have it taken down, promising to make “better work” next time.
