Illusions From Korea


Friend of mine mentioned these optical illusions crated by Koreans. I had fun time seeing them, but what amazed me, is that they took some of my optical illusions as inspiration! Boy, I didn’t know this blog is visited even in the far east. Great! You can easily see that the model is similar to Office Pranks. If you open this article, you will see a dozen of hilarious “relative sizes illusions” that can easily be compared to our previous illusions, like: Queen is Bald, Eating a Sun, etc. Which one did you like the best? My favorites are the first two!

    Those pictures were funny but I don’t think they are actually optical illusions ’cause they’re obviously just photoshopped or someting like that

    I think yhis is wonderful trick photography. Oh, by the way the green thingy is a bottle cap on closer inspection. (and it’s not photoshop)

  • V.J.

    These are so fun!

    I like the one with the big body and tiny head.

    Really funny stuff, I thought the guy with the green thing on his head should have made a video!

    these were great. but it’s definitely nothing new in korea. i went on a trip to a korean temple and the photographer had me stand up near the camera and hold my hand out and put my husband way far behind up on a hill with a “thumbs up” and it looked like I had in standing in the palm of my hands~ hehe.

    *the green cap that the guy has on his head in the pic above in the metal cap to a bottle of soju- a korean type of sake (alcohol).

    This looks ‘shopped. I can tell from some of the pixels and from having seen quite a few ‘shops in my time.

    this is my first time seeing this site, and me & my friends used to take pictures like those until some of them spread over the internet, maybe since this site not exsisted.. we never thought its an optical illusion or sumthin, we took pics like that for fun.. but no offense i think we never say that we took inspiration from this site..
    sorry for my bad english.. thank you..

    Not optical illusions but trick photography, much of it amaturish going by how the distant objects are out of focus. A professional would have had both fore and background objects in focus. Let me call it imaginative. :)
