The loss of Obokie is not only a personal tragedy for Jungwoo, but also a reminder of the impact that pets have on K-pop idols and fans. Pets are often a source of comfort, companionship, and happiness for idols who face immense pressure and stress in the competitive and demanding industry. Pets also help idols cope with loneliness, homesickness, and anxiety, especially when they are away from their families and friends.

Pets also play an important role in connecting idols and fans, as they provide a common ground for communication and interaction. Pets allow idols to show their personality, humor, and emotions, as well as their caring and nurturing side. Pets also give fans an insight into the idols’ daily lives, hobbies, and preferences, making them feel closer and more relatable.

Many K-pop idols have pets that are adored by fans, such as BTS’s V with Yeontan (a Pomeranian), EXO’s Sehun with Vivi (a Bichon Frise), Blackpink’s Jennie with Kuma (a Cocker Spaniel) and Kai (a Japanese Spitz), MONSTA X’s Shownu with Monni (a Scottish Fold), Red Velvet’s Joy with Haetnim (a Poodle) and Sulgi (a Persian cat), among others.

The passing of Obokie is a heartbreaking event that has touched many people around the world. Obokie was more than a pet for NCT Jungwoo; he was a best friend, a family member, and a source of joy. Obokie was also loved by many NCT fans, who gave him the nickname “Obokie” as a way of expressing their affection for both him and Jungwoo.

Fans have shown their support and sympathy for Jungwoo, as well as their gratitude and appreciation for Obokie. They have also demonstrated their kindness and generosity by donating to animal causes in Obokie’s name. Obokie’s legacy will live on in the hearts and memories of Jungwoo and his fans, who will always remember him as a lovely and loyal companion.
