Korean Grandpa Uses Instagram To Share His Drawings With His Grandkids 11,000 Miles Away

With the help of his wife and son, he began using his account to share photos of his drawings to his three grandchildren who are more than 11,000 miles away. Transforming Instagram as a storytelling tool, Chan Jae shares his hand-drawn images on his account, “Drawings for my Grandchildren.”
