The mystery man will fight for you

Who is this man? What does he want? Why, why is he stuck to the wall of an apartment building at 9th and St. Andrews? Admittedly, it is Koreatown, but most buildings don't have men pasted on them. Will he really fight for us? Is he ready to hit us with an uppercut?

LAist does not read Korean so we are baffled. We can read the English on the pasteup and, since it's not quite legible, we're happy to share that the Mystery Man attended Claremont McKenna College, getting a degree in Political Science in 1982, and then got his law degree from Pepperdine in 1986. Over on the right, amongst the Korean characters, are the words Lions Club. So he's upstanding.

But that's just not enough. Do you know what he wants from us? Is he nice? Is he your dad?
