Bon Bon and Nono meet up with their new Jeju friends. They are the Stone Granpas also known as (dolhareubang) and their names are Dol, Haeru and Bang. They protect the island from evil demons from other dimensions and you can find them all over the island, especially facing out towards the ocean. This is also the actual myth behind the stone statues.

Dol and Hareu are always up for new adventures and fun. Bang is friendly too, but he likes to lay back and prefers to be cautious at all times.

First up is a hike up the island’s iconic volcanic crater that lies above the ocean. There are many of these in Pacific Ocean, but none as well preserved as this one. It’s also 5000 years old! This crater is also known as Sunrise Peak and is still full of lava!
