Yoon Kyun Sang Asks Viewers Not To Adopt Pets On Impulse After His “I Live Alone” Episode
On the March 8 broadcast of MBC’s “I Live Alone,” Yoon Kyun Sang shared moments from his life at home with his four cats, amazing both the viewers and cast members with his bond with his pets and his dedication to raising them.
Following the broadcast, the actor wrote a message on his Instagram warning viewers against deciding to raise pets on impulse and asked that they think carefully before making the commitment. Two of Yoon Kyun Sang’s own cats were ones that had been returned by their previous owners after they found that they couldn’t take on the responsibility.
Yoon Kyun Sang’s full message:
Thank you so much for enjoying my episode of ‘I Live Alone.’ There’s something that I want to say.
Did you think my kids (cats) were cute? Then, did you also see all the shedding fur and the time that it requires to take care of them? You may have seen just a little bit because it was on TV, but raising pets is a huge commitment and requires a lot of time and sacrifice.
It could negatively affect your health, steal your time, and you may even have to give up your hobbies. If you saw the broadcast and came to my Instagram because you [suddenly] think you’d like to adopt cats, I ask that you don’t.
Please don’t adopt cats on an impulse and end up hurting or killing them. You could develop new allergies or get cuts, and the hospital bills [for animals] are incredibly high because there’s no insurance.
They can break cups and plates, and if they get stressed, they might not use their litter box. Moreover, cats are not readily affectionate.
Please think about it as if you were going to raise a human being, make your decision carefully, and welcome any new cats as family members.

#쿵똠몽솜 나혼산 이쁘게 잘봐주셔서 감사합니다. 아 제가 조심스럽게 하고싶은말이 있어서요. 저희 아이들 이쁘게 보셨나요? 혹시 털날리고 시간을 할애하는 부분들도 보셨나요? 방송이라 짧아 보이셨을지도 모르지만 반려동물을 키운다는게 굉장히 큰결심이 필요하고 많은 시간이 필요하고 희생을강요합니다. 건강이 나빠질수도있고 시간을 뺏길수도있고 수집이라던지 취미생활을 포기해야할수도있지요. 방송을 보고 저때문에 고양이를 분양을받고 싶단 생각이 들었고 그때문에 제 인스타에 오셨다면 이글을보고 부디 그생각을 접으시길 부탁드립니다. 순간적 충동으로 분양받아 아이들을 상처주고 죽이지 말아주세요. 없던 알러지도생기고 상처도 생기고 병원비도 보험이없어 굉장히 많이듭니다. 잔을 깨고 그릇을깨고 스트레스받으면 배변 실수도하고 고양이는 살갑게 곁을 막 내주지않아요. 사람을 키운다는 생각으로 고민하고 신중하게 결심하시고 아이들을 가족으로 맞아주시길 바랍니다. 감사합니다.
