When Iroh plays the song for the crying boy, he strums his instrument like a guitar. The instrument he plays, however, looks like a traditional Chinese instrument that is played upright while sitting down, and is essentially too heavy to be carried like a guitar. However, in the purely fictional world of Avatar, there are many things which would be impossible or "wrong" in our reality. In this specific case, just because the instrument looks like a certain real Chinese one, doesn't make it the same one, if only because China doesn't even exist in this fictional world. See more
Uncle, we have a problem. One of the customers is on to us. Don't look now, but there is a girl over there at the corner table, she knows we're Fire Nation.
[Uncle looks at the girl
Didn't I say "don't look?"
You're right, Zuko. I've seen that girl in here quite a lot. Seems to me she has quite a little crush on you.
