Two Chinese giant pandas make their public debut at a zoo in South Korea.

YONGIN, South Korea (Reuters) - China sent two giant pandas to South Korea.

Ai Bao is two years old. The zoo says she likes to eat and rest a lot, while three-year-old male Le Bao is "mischievous".

"I've seen pandas only in pictures and books, but seeing them in person... they are so cute," said elementary school pupil Seo Seung-Yeon, 8.

The pair are on a 15-year loan.

It's part of China's 'panda diplomacy'.
