Ji Chang Wook – Ggoma

Ji Chang Wook has been all the craze these days, and it could be because of the fact that he’s not only perfect-looking and charming, but he loves his dog, Ggoma. It’s so easy to get excited every time he posts something about his furry friend — the cuteness!

Those eyes, though!

Lee Joon Gi first revealed his two adorable dogs on the variety show “My Ear’s Candy” in 2017. He displayed not only his amazing organization skills, but he also showed how well he was able to train his two puppies!

Dok2 – Ca$h, Rol2, Lupe, and Kala

There’s something about seeing a hard rapper obsessed with dogs. If you follow Dok2 on IG, you see that he’s a serious animal lover. And it’s obvious that they are well taken care of! Dok2 expressed in the past that he has allergies to cats, but he has since designed a bedroom specifically for his two cats to hang out in.

It’s no secret that Hyori is an animal lover. When she had her hit reality show, “Hyori’s Homestay,” all of her guests were able to encounter the loving affections of her pets. Because they are all rescue animals, they have a lot of love to give. They’re the sweetest animals!

Kang Min Hyuk mentioned in an interview that he named his kitties Koong and Dda Dda because their names together make the sound of playing drums. His kitties are just as endearing as their names!

Jennie’s really good at sharing photos of her pup, Kai, on IG, which is why we’ve totally fallen in love with him!

SHINee’s Key – Comme Des and Garcon
