What I have gathered is that Molang originated from Korea. A university student, Hye-ji Yoon, created Molang back in 2010. I have read that the main character design was based on a Korean Sticky Rice. That makes sense because his body does look like a cooked fluffy grain of rice. The character design does reminds me of Pusheen the cat. My oldest daughter thinks it is one of Hello Kitty's friends.
At the time, Hye-ji Yoon's six year old cousin, suggested to name the character Malang which means squeezy and soft in Korean. So she took that idea and changed it to "Molang". Originally, she didn't give Molang a gender but now she changed it to a male character.
There is no dialog in the TV show. Not one word. They are not speaking a different language. Just cute little noises to mimic that they are talking. It is like TV shows: Pingu Penguin, Naya's Arctic Adventures, and Shawn the Sheep. Don't worry, you can easily follow along the story.
Just watching a few episode of Molang can make you fall in love with the character. The Season Two DVD has over 3 hours of Molang and Piu Piu silly adventures. Each adventures/episode is under 4 mins long. It is a 2D simple animation instead of the usual CG ones. Just watching Molang can bring smiles to your little ones. Even the intro song is a happy catchy simple tune that I could hear my youngest daughter humming to it.
