Pets are our lovely companions that can offer us beautiful, unconditional love and affection, someone to care for and love. Many consider a pet to be a fully-fledged member of their family, and South Korean celebrities are no different!

Here, in no particular order (how could we even consider ranking this?!), are a selection of Korean celebs and their pets.

  1. Amber – JackJack & Tuna

Okay, I am biased in including this one on the list, given that my name is Holly! However, it must be noted that Suga’s dog Holly is actually a boy. Apparently, he was abandoned and then re-homed by Suga’s family. The BTS rapper said that his brother chose the name, though he doesn’t know why.

  1. Kangta ~ Ssen, Venus, Mayo & J

Veteran K-Celeb Kangta owns four tiny dogs called Ssen, Venus, Mayo and J. He adores them; referring to them as his kids and stating that he makes sure he spends 30% of his time with them every day.

K-Pop. Pets, U-Kwon, Block B,


Block B’s U-Kwon and his shopping mall owner/model girlfriend Jeon Sun Hye own a whopping 5 dogs together. Some got annoyed recently with how much he shares photos of the dogs on his social media. Though, this could be a bit of soreness about the relationship and the perceived idea by some that they must live together if he is able to take so many photos of the pets.

  1. CL ~ Pudding, Snowball & Donut

VIXX member Ravi has a dog called Butt, which is another I share here mostly because of its name. However, he is also known as BADASS, which is much cooler, but I still prefer the former. Butt is white French Bulldog that Ravi has introduced on television.

  1. HIGHLIGHT Junhyung ~ Hyungnim

HIGHLIGHT’s Junhyung has a English Bulldog called Hyungnim. There are rumours among fans that Hyungnim got so big that he had to go and live with Junhyung’s family instead.

Here is cute video of the two:

  1. Zion.T ~ Namu

K-Pop, Pets, Zion.T, Namu, Cat


Hip Hop and R&B singer Zion.T has a brown cat called Namu, who has an Instagram account with over 5,000 followers. Yes, a cat can certainly make you feel unpopular!

Of course, there are many more pairings that have not been featured here!
