You Can Visit Kep1er Chaehyun’s “Animal Crossing” Island (And It’s The Cutest Thing!)
Kep1er‘s Chaehyun has many talents. From her fantastic dancing to her impressive vocals, there are many things to love about the group’s center. What a lot of people may not know is that aside from her dedication to her idol career, she is also an avid fan of Animal Crossing.
Many idols love the popular Nintendo Switch game — the likes of Girls’ Generation‘s Tiffany and BLACKPINK‘s Jisoo have played it — but Chaehyun’s love for the game seems to be next level.
Fans have known about Chaehyun’s interest in the game for quite some time, as the idol loves talking about it with fans. When asked on Twitter if she plays the game, she even invited the fan to play with her!

On another occasion, a fan wanted to know who her favorite Animal Crossing villager was, and she happily shared that it was Poppy the squirrel.

But it’s not only fans. Chaehyun even talks about the game with fellow idols! For instance, during a live broadcast, Sunmi shared that Chaehyun wanted to know whether she played and even asked about her ID, which Sunmi found super cute.

But the adorableness doesn’t stop there! Ever the quick-minded detectives, Kep1ians found that one of Chaehyun’s outfits in real life was a near-perfect replica of an outfit the idol’s character wears in the game. Talk about dedication!

Another cute detail is the name of Chaehyun’s island. During a fan video call, she shared that she named her island ‘비야’ (‘rain’ in Korean) because she really likes rain!
