Master of fire and guardian against it, the Haetae is a wonderful beast of Korea. It resembles a dog with a lion's mane, quite similar to the Dogs of Fo of China.
The haetae has many powers, including the ability to stop, go back, or fast forward through time. This unusual creature can also bite the moon, explaining the moon's waning period, and create an eclipse.
Haetae is often seen outside and inside of Korean houses, placed as powerful guardian against Earth's most destructive elements.
