14 of the most adorable K-drama animal sidekicks
K-drama sidekicks are an important backbone to our favorite shows. From sassy best friends to wise secretaries, secondary characters support the leads with heart and humor. Among the many variations on the K-drama sidekick, some of the best ones aren't even human! While most K-drama leads are too busy recovering from amnesia or running from loan sharks to properly care for a pet, the occasional drama features an adorable animal. Here are some of the fuzzy friends who won our hearts:
1. Terry/Sweeper, Coffee Prince
In the realm of K-drama dogs, the good-natured Terry is a classic.
2. Sangchu, To the Beautiful You
3. Coco, Bride of the Century
4. Malbok, Scent of a Woman
Eun Suk officially moved from grumpy doctor status to beloved second lead status when he ignored his allergies to help Yeon Jae save this dog from becoming someone's dinner.
5. Jolie, You're Beautiful
6. Barassi, Let's Eat
Bara is one of the more mischievous K-drama animals, but who can stay mad at a face like that?
7. Yoon Jae, Answer Me 1997
A puppy who looks like Seo In Guk? Where do I sign up?
8. Great King Jade's goat, Arang and the Magistrate
For those who aren't dog or cat people, there is always the heavenly goat option!
9. Sang Gu, He Who Can't Marry
You can't pull any fast ones on this knowing chihuahua!
10. Pilseung, The Master's Sun
11. Ddoongja, My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho
Ddoongja and Mi Ho have an automatic connection because they both love meaty treats.
12. Blackie, City Hunter
Who knew that dog poop could be used to bring people together? But I want to know what happened to Blackie at the end of the show!
13. Goldfish, Pasta
I don't personally find goldfish particularly adorable, but every time they cut to those fish, it was a reminder of how the two leads initially met. You have to wonder how many stunt goldfish they went through filming a 20-episode series.
14. Song Joong Ki, A Werewolf Boy
It's technically a movie instead of a drama, but wolf-like Song Joong Ki is easily the best onscreen Korean pet out there (although Jang Geun Suk in You're My Pet isn't too shabby, either).
