While it certainly isn’t uncommon for fans to create hashtags for their favorite K-Pop idol’s birthday, the same can’t usually be said for their pets. However ENHYPEN‘s Sunghoon and his furry friend Gaeul have recently been trending worldwide because of the special occasion!
#SUNGHOON and HAPPY BIRTHDAY GAEUL has been trending for an hour and still rising on worldwide trends!! I hope Sunghoon sees it 🥳✨

His adorable toy poodle just turned four years old, and ENGENEs wasted no time making celebratory posts for her as soon as the clock struck midnight on July 8 in South Korea.

Gaeul has actually been quite popular with ENGENEs even before ENHYPEN’s debut, as the first time Sunghoon talked about her was on the group’s survival show I-Land. During the broadcast, a photo of Gaeul freshly groomed and dressed up with a bow was shown on screen.

Sunghoon has shared much more about his precious Gaeul since then, including her barking habits and how she became a part of his family.
Gaeul rarely barks, but she knows how to protect the house and barks if she hears something outside. Gaeul came to us when she was two or three months old. Gaeul was such a baby, and pooped and peed on a potty pad.
ENGENEs are grateful for all of the love Gaeul has for her owner Sunghoon, and have expressed their hopes that she will continue to have a long, happy life with him.
Happy birthday to Sunghoon’s bestfriend, Gaeul! 🥺❤️
Keep woofing with happiness and excitement, just like the joy we feel every time the autumn season comes! ✨🍂 #HappyGaeulDay #SUNGHOON #성훈 #ENHYPEN #엔하이픈 @ENHYPEN_members @ENHYPEN pic.twitter.com/0Jkvn7x3mG
