On Guri City’s “Community” Facebook page, created for locals to share announcements anonymously, a confused barkeep posted this:
If you’re the one who ran away in our Kumamon suit last night, please return it to the bar where you found it.
When the post went live on the page, fellow Gury City residents who witnessed the mysterious Kumamon-on-the-run shared some video footage of that night too. This particular one captured the drunk Kumamon running into a sign and then politely apologizing to it before waddling off:
Thanks to the power of the internet, a Korean man came forward and admitted that he took Kumamon home after having one too many drinks…
… except he had no idea how, why, and from where!
Hey, I’m so sorry T-T I don’t usually do this… but I have no idea why this is in my house. I really do want to return it to you… So if you could please let me know where I stole this from, that would be great…!

The barkeep responded with the address of the bar — and the man promised to bring the suit back later that day.
Barkeep: We’re at (address). We’ll treat you to a soda or something when you bring it back. I’m so glad you kept it though. At least you didn’t throw it away somewhere.
Friend: LMAO. This f*cking idiot.
Man: I’m so sorry T-T I will bring it back around 8 o’clock today. And really, I should be the one bringing you a drink.
When the internet had questions about how the man got home in the Kumamon suit, he shared he actually “took a cab home”…
… and that left netizens with even more questions for the Kumamon thief!
In case you’re wondering, Kumamon had safely been returned home — thanks to the very man who had taken it on the wildest adventure!
Let’s get you home to your mom.
