Mythological Mural narrative is that in 1919 Bathurst and Bloor was visited by the great Korean Imoogi.
The Imoogi is a hornless ocean dragon, sometimes equated with a sea serpent. Literally means, “Great Lizard”. The legend of the Imoogi says that the sun god gave the Imoogi their power through a human girl, which would be transformed into the Imoogi on her 17th birthday.
