I wrote an article about ddung doll for Dolls magazine months ago, and it is finally going to be in the March issue. I haven't received mine yet, but if you go here:

and "view" the current issue, you can see a photo of ddung on page 5 in the table of contents.

It certainly worked on me. It was a great article with pictures that showed how cute these dolls are. I got the Pink Cat but I'm hoping to bid on another one or two soon.

Ah, I am so disappointed! I didn't realize that the article was going to be online only. It's not in the print issue. I finally was able to get access to the digital issue. The magazine staff did a beautiful job on the layout.

(You can buy a digital copy for $1.99 at http://shop.dollsmagazine.com/back-issues.html?cat=6. It's the March 2013 issue.)

Here is the text.

With Love, Ddee
Four-year-old ddung doll will steal your heart

By Jane Easterly

Ddung doll is an adorable representation of a four-year-old girl. Her friends call her Ddee and her dream is to become Miss Korea and Miss Universe. She says, “Even if you had a really bad day, I will be waiting at your home always smiling. I will comfort your heart no matter what.”

A team of doll specialists in Korea began work on the ddung doll in 2005, and the first ddung was produced in 2006. The following year, ddung was exported to 22 countries. While many talented people contributed to the planning and realization of ddung, the project was led by ddung’s creator Sun-Mi Yoon, one of the top designers from the Korean character company Barunson. Ms. Yoon says, “I wanted to have a lovely little girl so I created ddung as my daughter. My son was the inspiration for the character Bong-gu. I love the dolls as my children. I hope many many people feel the way I feel about ddung!” Ddung also has a costume designer, a hair designer, a packaging designer and many others who work hard to make ddung special. She is one lucky four-year-old!

The design team members behind ddung doll study current trends and fashion styles as well as hit movies and celebrities to incorporate into ddung’s style. Ddung’s image is a happy one, so they try to bring a happy energy to her outfits. She is extremely popular in Korea, and purses, phone cases, and many other items carrying ddung’s image are available as well.

Ddee’s best friend is a stuffed yellow pig doll named Dungs. She has a huge crush on Bong-gu, the handsome five-year-old boy who lives next door. A Bong-gu doll is available to complement ddung doll. Available Bong-gu and ddung sets include the Little Prince and the Fox, Alice and the Mad Hatter, and Red Riding Hood and the Wolf.

Ddee learns about life from watching TV, and while she acts like a spoiled child sometimes, she also cares about others and is very shy. She attends a daycare center during the day and has many friends, including new ones that were introduced in I Love ddung, an animated series that began broadcasting in Korea in July 2012. (You can watch the adorable trailer on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWTAFLlRLGY, or search Youtube for “ddung trailer”.)

Ddee’s mother is a famous designer of underwear, so Ddee has many pair. She even dresses her stuffed pig in underpants that match her own.

Ddung doll has many fans and a fan forum on the ddung website (www.ddung.net). Some collectors have created their own blogs and fan sites. Fans write “I love ddung,” “She is so cute,” “She is just like my daughter,” and “I want a daughter like her.” They also post photos of ddung outfits they have created. The English language forum ddung – The Future Miss Korea can be found at http://ddung.forumotion.com. Collector Carmela Rivellini says, “I like ddung for her cute face and her nicely detailed outfits. Her simple poses really make me think of a little child. Ddung dolls look adorable when posed in a group.” “Taking photos is generally my favorite thing to do with Dee,” says fan Jenny Smith. “I enjoy creating scenes, or stories, and collecting tiny props to use in my photos. Making clothes and accessories comes in a close second.”

“A doll is not just a doll to me, a doll can be my best friend, my sister and brother,” says ddung creator Ms. Yoon. “When people are happy with my doll, I feel like I have helped them to be happy. So I make ddung in many different concepts to meet the collectors’ needs.”

Ddung dolls are reasonably priced, running from around $12 for mini dolls to $85 for special limited editions, with prices for regular edition full-sized dolls in the middle. However, each ddung doll has a limited run, so prices can be high on the secondary market. New dolls are released twice a month. Ddung is gaining in popularity in North America but she is still difficult to find in doll shops. Ddung doll can be purchased on ebay. However, fans should be cautious and buy only authentic ddung merchandise, as unfortunately there are fake copies for sale on ebay as well.

To fans of her doll, Ms. Yoon says, “When she becomes Miss Korea, I hope to share the joy with you all. Till then, give her lots of love and interest so she’ll grow up to be the most humble and honest beauty queen ever.”
