Requirements: Base Level 20+
Starting Location: Malangdo (167, 139)

Wondering what to do with alll those portraits that you've collected? Look no further than the New Year Headgear Machine, which is located right next to ChulHo. However, after trying to tinker with the machine, you'll soon discover that it's broken! Things can never be as easy as they look, can they?

Upon closer look, it seems that someone has stolen the prizes from the machine. Utilize your detective skills and look for a Witness to help with your investigation. The Witness will direct you to the location of the thief.

When you confront the thief, your own portraits will be stolen from you. ChulHo will scold the thief and create another self-portrait for the thief. He will also give you a Big Tiger Hat as compensation.

From now on, you can also get additional Big Tiger Hats every time you turn in 5 portraits to the New Year Headgear Machine.
