According to Metro UK, the Chinese man pictured above was recently prevented from leaving South Korea after his 4-year-old son doodled all over his passport during a family trip.

The photograph of the doodled passport -- together with a plea for help -- was originally posted on Weibo, the popular Chinese social networking site, Metro reported.

This dad "can't return to the country," a May 16 Weibo post reads. "What is [he] to do? Please help."
