Conan reunites with Samuel the octopus thanks to the Korean Board of Tourism

Conan O’Brien has been happily reunited with his octopus friend, Samuel!

The American talk show host made his very first trip to South Korea in February 2016, making the most of his time in the country with a special cameo on the Korean drama One More Happy Ending, getting Korean lessons, starring in a Korean music video, visiting an authentic Korean market and more. While visiting a market, Conan met an octopus which he nicknamed Samuel, donating the octopus to a local aquarium where he learned the octopus was in fact a “she.”

Just recently, the Korean Board of Tourism made contact with Conan and his team, offering to fly Samuel from Seoul to Los Angeles, California where she could spend her days with him.
