"Three-legged Bird" ('Sam-jok-oh' in Korean)
A symbol of Seoul International Drama Awards
In ancient mythology, the ‘three-legged bird’
symbolizes the sun and predicts the future.
As you can see from the name, the bird has three legs. Many assumptions exist for the meaning of the number of its legs; some historians and archeologists say amongst the positive numbers according to the ‘Yin Yang’ theory, ‘3’ stands for ‘perfection.’ So ancient people believed the bird living in the sun had three legs. Some people explain that each leg means the air, earth and human beings respectively.
Looking into some historical sources, you can find the 'three-legged Bird' from various cultures.
