Choon Entertainment releases statement on Kim Yong Guk's (Longguo) cat Lucy

Kim Yong Guk (Longguo)
Choon Entertainment has released an official statement on Kim Yong Guk's (Longguo) pet cat Lucy.

Along with his dating rumors involving SONAMOO's Nahyun, Kim Yong Guk has also been at the center of some controversy because of his pet cat Lucy. Netizens found Lucy had been picked up by an animal shelter and marked with TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) treatment as indicated by its snipped left ear, and many netizens are expressing concern about Kim Yong Guk's responsibility as a pet owner. The label explained Lucy had been unable to get along with Kim Yong Guk's other pet cats, which led to the current situation.

On November 10, Choon Entertainment released the following statement on the issue:

"Hello. This is Choon Entertainment. As relating to agency artist Kim Yong Guk, we'd first like to apologize for causing everyone to worry with such news. We're letting everyone know what most people would like to know first. Currently, Kim Yong Guk's cat Lucy is being cared for at the headquarter's office. Kim Yong Guk is currently deeply reflecting for causing a stir.

We have reviewed what the fans are worried about it, and we have confirmed the facts with Kim Yong Guk himself. We're very sorry for the delayed statement. Before this situation occurred, Kim Yong Guk had been receiving a lot of love, and we apologize that the agency had not taken care of things more pro-actively. We bow our heads in front of the fans who've been hurt as well as those who protect animals. 

Kim Yong Guk adopted Kagu in June, and Tolby as well as Lucy came to the dorm together. However, Lucy and Kagu weren't able to get adjusted to living together, and she began receiving scars from other pets. After a lot of thought, Kim Yong Guk decided to look into Lucy getting adopted elsewhere. We apologize for not letting you know about this.

After Lucy was adopted, Kim Yong Guk attempted to talk to the new owner, but he was very nervous when he couldn't get into contact with them. We knew Lucy had escaped from the new owner on September 25. He let the agency know right away, and after hearing about it, the headquarters brought Lucy over to take care of her. We apologize for causing so much worry due to the headquarters' issue. It's true that Kim Yong Guk deeply loves animals and thinks about them. However, he's currently reflecting on himself for not thinking maturely. 

Once again, we sincerely apologize to those who were hurt."

this could be true i dont think he is lying, there is cats who cant adjust to living together, but also there is cats who adjust quickly to be together which is a little bit rare

i had 2 cats before and they hate each others ,one of them run away from home :( i searched him a lot but didnt find him..

i hope this cat find a good home

edit;i checked a new article about this and changed my mind about him not lying, that guy turned out really not good, he throw the cat in the street : here check https://www.allkpop.com/article/2018/11/lucys-curr...

is he pretending to be a cat lover?? he had gotten rid of his cat and got caught lying about it, not to mention his attitude doesnt look good toward his fans...

I'm glad she found a new home, though

I don't know if this is true... but it doesn't seem false, and I think it would be unfair not to give him the benefit of the doubt.

You should always remove the aggressor from the home, not the other way around. Doing that allows the aggressor. at a point in the future, to attack the other animal (if the household has one) if it wants to.

The other two cats got along fine though, it was the obviouse choice that Lucy should be found a enw home. Too bad she didn't get one.

As an animal attendent, I can safely say the obvious choice would be to rehome the aggressive cat into a single cat household. Who's to say that they don't get another cat and Kagu attacks that one as well? Are they going to rehome that cat too? That is traumatising for an animal.

Even if the aggressor cat and the third cat were best friends? It sounds like Lucy is a loner who would be best placed in a one cat home.

What they do not specify here is that their new cat was purebred, while lucy is a street cat, that's why he decided to get rid of Lucy instead of the new cat who was the aggressor of the other two.

Not sure if that's the truth or not, but it can be difficult when animals don't get on. Maybe he should have just got one cat.
