About ZI:SIN 'GALLUS'
GALLUS is a messenger of light as bright as the sun. The demons from the dark side would not hesitate to disappear right away when they see the bright light and hear the roaring sound of GALLUS. The splendid pointed helmet enables GALLUS to possess a unique ability to foresee the upcoming events.
Traditionally, ancient Korean folks made Gwi-myeon-wa (Yong-my- eon-wa): normally called "Do ggae bi* Ki-wa" and hung at the both ends of roof tiles for the purpose of placing a stronger spirit to chase away evil spirits.
The Do ggae bi is the face on the Gwi-myeon-wa, and unlike its gro-tesque looks, it has a distinct humane and humorous characteristic. Do ggae bi is Korea's own unique mythical being referred as a ghost, a monster or a god, similar to the hob-goblin from Western culture.
