Mona Lisa speaks!

But not in Italian! In Korean! And even her body language is Asian.
This is an idea of a gallery in Seoul- classics of art come to life and interact with the spectators, in this case little kids, who seem to be thrilled (not their usual response to being dragged to a museum.) One of the questions they asked was why she had no eyebrows. She replied that it was cool in the Renaissance to shave them off to show a lofty forehead. We still don't know why she's smiling.
