A Series of Statues That Tell the Story of a Boy Who Became a Cow

On Children's Day we headed over to Gwacheon with friends to spend some time at the park. They have these statues there which tell an old Korean children's story. 

Apparently there was a really lazy boy who somehow ended up putting on a cow mask. Unfortunately, he then turned into a cow and had to work the fields. Finally, he got restored to his original human condition and decided he wouldn't be lazy anymore. 

I'm sure I missed some important details, but this is the main gist of the story.
