EXO‘s Baekhyun made his very own stuffed animals, and they’re the cutest things ever!
Before he enlisted in the military, Baekhyun created stuffed animals that fans can remember him by, and he chronicled the plushies’ origin stories on his YouTube channel.
He started by sketching his ideas. First up was a sticky rice cake.
Baekhyun explained that he wanted fans to be able to use this plush as a stress ball and throw it at the wall when they needed to relieve stress.
Baekhyun said he noticed that EXO-Ls “like dressing things up,” and he decided to create a stuffed animal that they would be able to dress and carry around with them.
He used his own adorable Corgi, Myongrong, as inspiration for the stuffed animal he created for his fans.
Here’s his adorable sketch of the character!
As he sketched, Baekhyun expanded on his ideas and decided to create multiple versions of the stuffed Corgi. He made one that was small enough to carry around, one large enough to cuddle with at night, and a medium-sized version. He named the small version Please Don’t Lose Me, he named the medium-sized one Protect Me, and he named the biggest one I’ll Protect You.
As the video ended, Baekhyun reminded EXO-Ls that the plushies were made with lots of love and that he will always be by their sides.
Although Baekhyun was worried that his drawings weren’t good enough, the final stuffed animals came out amazing! His vision came to life beautifully.
Baekhyun’s creations will be available online in SM Entertainment’s online stores and at an in-person pop up shop.
