9 Super Cute K-Pop Stars With The Squirrel As Their Representative Animal

In case you aren’t familiar with the concept of representative animals, they’re usually the emojis that an idol will use to sign off their social media posts. Fans also usually use these emojis when referring to their idols, and they could also be a part of the group’s merch, concepts, and more! Sometimes these representative animals have something to do with an idol’s stage name, or they might even look like the animal. Let’s just get into some examples—and these nine idols are super adorable, so it’ll be fun!

Oh My Girl’s Seunghee

Seunghee is definitely dedicated to her representative animal—so much so that the bio on her personal Instagram account says “Oh My Girl’s squirrel captain”! This video makes her resemblance to the adorable emoji even more apparent. You can’t help but smile when you see her!

ATEEZ’s Hongjoong

Especially in this outfit, ATEEZ’s leader Hongjoong looks just like a squirrel! The brown vest definitely emphasizes his squirrel-like qualities, such as his soft cheeks. ATINYs are also big fans of the squirrel emoji and often use it when referring to Hongjoong.

fromis_9’s Lee Chaeyoung

Lee Chaeyoung’s adorable resemblance to a squirrel is very apparent when she’s eating, just like in this video—even her mannerisms are squirrel-like! The squirrel emoji doesn’t make too many appearances on the group’s social media, but when it does, you can be sure that it’s Chaeyoung.

Stray Kids’ Han

With his adorable round face shape and squishy cheeks, Han is represented by both quokkas and squirrels! He even eats by storing a lot of food in his cheeks, just like squirrels do. Look out for the squirrel emoji on Stray Kids’ social media—that’s how you know it’s Han!

TXT’s Taehyun

Taehyun is also occasionally represented by the cat emoji, but you’ll see the squirrel on a lot of TXT’s content too! Thanks to his shiny eyes and toothy grin, he looks a lot like a squirrel. Whether you’re team cat emoji or team squirrel emoji, there’s one thing to agree on—his smile is too cute!

Red Velvet’s Wendy

Wendy is adorable in this photo shoot from Red Velvet’s 2019 Season’s Greetings, surrounded by her representative animal! She looks just like her squirrel companions, and it’s easy to see why the squirrel emoji is just right for Wendy. This photo shoot concept is perfect too!

ONEUS’s Seoho

Another Season’s Greetings photo shoot that encompasses the representative squirrel—this time, it’s for ONEUS’s Seoho! From the 2023 photo shoot, Seoho looks super cute with his giant stuffed squirrel. You’ll see the squirrel emoji all over the place on Seoho’s content, from live broadcasts to fancams.

IVE’s Gaeul

IVE came out with little plush characters called MINIVE earlier this year, and as expected Gaeul’s MINIVE character is a squirrel! Her round cheeks look just like a squirrel when she smiles, so they’re the perfect match for each other. There’s nothing cuter!

BTS’s J-Hope

J-Hope created MANG back in 2017 as a part of BTS’s BT21 line, but it wasn’t revealed until recently that MANG isn’t actually a horse; he’s J-Hope’s representative animal—a squirrel! It’s clear from this video that J-Hope cares a lot about MANG and that the cute squirrel mascot suits him perfectly!
