A four-year-old Chinese boy got himself and his father into trouble when he drew all over his dad’s passport during a recent visit to South Korea.

The passport was so covered in animals, plants, clouds and scribbles that South Korean authorities wouldn’t let the dad and his “naughty” little boy return home.

Even the passport photo got an artistic touch: the dad’s hair was made longer, he gained a beard and his mouth and eyes were coloured in black.

The dad took to a Chinese blog to vent his frustration, asking readers for advice, solutions or help. It’s unclear what’s since happened to the father-son duo reports telegraph.co.uk.

According to Chinese news agency Xinhua there’s an important lesson to be learnt here: “The picture on the passport is very important. If any damage is done to the face area of the picture you may fail to get through customs.”

Therefore all parents are urged to keep their passports in a safe place and not leave them where arty toddlers can get their hands on them.
