A four-year-old boy’s drawing on his dad’s passport has left the man stranded in South Korea and unable to get home to China.news.com.au

A Chinese man is stuck in South Korea after his 4-year-old son doodled all over his passport, leaving him unable to fly home with his family.

The budding artist took to his father’s passport with a black felt tip pen, making his dad’s eyes and lips bigger and drawing extra facial hair all over his head.

The boy also drew some animals, a few additional people and some flowers.

The man — whose name is only given as Chen — tried to board his flight back to China from South Korea but was stopped by security.

His family is believed to have flown home but Chen is still stranded in South Korea, forcing him to take to Chinese social networking site Weibo to try and find a solution.

This dad “can’t return to the country,” a May 16 Weibo post reads. “What is [he] to do? Please help.”

So far no solutions have presented themselves. While the 4-year-old shows some talent for drawing, we suspect that this artwork is not going straight to the fridge door when his dad eventually gets back to China.
