It’s common in K-Pop for idols to have representative animals, and while some look exactly like their animal counterparts, others are the human embodiment of their animals. Thanks to his energetic and loving personality, SEVENTEEN‘s Mingyu is often compared to a puppy. These 13 moments prove that everyone, whether it’s his members, CARATs, or Mingyu himself, are all for the “Mingyu is a puppy” agenda.
