The contrast is night and day, though it isn’t truly a heinous crime unless you’re a Dog Mom (like me) or Cat Mom or generally just an animal lover. It’s pet week with K-netizens as the topic has been on two actors and their pet(s). Jo Seung Woo was revealed by the pet shelter to have adopted a dog that was there for 4 months and almost at the deadline for being euthanized. I already wrote about this sweet decision but was checking in on Jo Seung Wo who posted pictures of his new pupper (my fave is the pair selfie above) who is INSANELY ADORABLE and such a derp. I’m surprised he wasn’t adopted earlier, look at that face and those sideways ears! Then I heard about K-actor Park Eun Seok‘s scandal, with him shooting to fame these past few months after being in SBS hit drama Penthouse as Logan Lee.
He’s on I Live Alone and showed off his baby golden retriever and two Sphynx cats and was revealed by a former classmate to have abandoned a previous dog for a smaller one when his girlfriend didn’t like it. More was revealed that Park Eun Seok’s other pets that used to show up on his Instagram would suddenly disappear including a poodle, sheepdog, and more cats. His agency first released a statement that all the pets were rehomed with his acquaintances and living great lives, explaining that for different reasons he could not care for them (such as moving into a dorm). That’s a lame excuse because after each instance once his situation changed he got ANOTHER pet, hello? Pets are not toys that one can play with when it’s convenient and then pass to another when it’s not. Finally days later Park Eun Seok issued a personal apology and took responsibility for abandoning his pets. Well at least that is a start. People keep an eye on his current puppy and two cats please, make sure it doesn’t suddenly go MIA.
