Fans are more concerned about Kim Yong Guk's cat Lucy than his dating scandal, as the cat was recently spotted in an animal shelter

Kim Yong Guk (Longguo)

Fans of solo artist/former JBJ member Kim Yong Guk are currently in a crisis, as in addition to his dating scandal with SONAMOO member Nahyun, his has also become the center of controversy due to his cat, Lucy



Kim Yong Guk is known as an owner of three cats - Lucy, Tolby, and Kagu. Lucy is gray with blackish stripes, as seen below. 





However, some time ago, fans spotted photos of a cat who very closely resembled Lucy, being posted from an animal shelter account. 


Below are photos of the cat from when the animal shelter discovered it.




The cat was then taken up by the animal shelter, and marked with TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) treatment, as indicated by its snipped left ear. 




Up until recently, the animal shelter was seen sharing posts about the cat below to promote adoption. 




Fans have indeed identified the cat discovered by the animal shelter as Lucy, Kim Yong Guk's cat. In the comparison photo below, the left side is a photo of Lucy from Choon Entertainment. The right side is a photo of the cat from the animal shelter. Furthermore, Lucy's most notable identifying trait is her unique right paw - seeming as if she is wearing a white sock with holes. 



After doing some research, Kim Yong Guk fans claim to have  concluded the following:


1. Lucy was found on the streets some time in mid-September. 

2. Lucy was TNR-treated, then put up for adoption. 

3. Lucy is a cat who already received TNR treatment. 

5. Around the Chuseok holidays, a fan is finally able to contact Choon Entertainment, informing them of Lucy's whereabouts. 

6. An employee of Choon Entertainment retrieves Lucy after the holidays. 





What's upsetting fans more is that after the Chuseok holidays, in October of this year, Kim Yong Guk was seen posting a photo of Lucy on Twitter again nonchalantly. However, it was noted that the photo posted on Twitter omitted Lucy's snipped ear. 


Fans are currently demanding an explanation from Kim Yong Guk and Choon Entertainment about what really happened to Lucy, whether she was lost or whether she was purposefully abandoned. Currently, Choon Entertainment has yet to respond to fans' requests for feedback about Lucy, or about Kim Yong Guk's photos with SONAMOO member Nahyun. 

What do you think about the issue?

The cat probably ran away or abandon him after finding out he's cheating on her (i.e dating Nahyun)....

Have the parents of these children not permitted them to have cats of their own? News flash: cats abandon their owners all the time, and usually not because they were abused. Why anyone would jump to assuming he abandoned the cat is beyond me. Assuming it really is the same cat, which is not confirmed, why is the guy obliged to tell his fans 'what really happened'? There is zero evidence he has done anything to intentionally harm the cat .


Of course this disgraceful character-assassinating tripe has to come from actual AKP staff, we couldn't let the articles submitted by regular users be the worst stuff on here could we. They've been posting up a storm about this guy too. Looks like someone is salty he has found a woman to spend time with who, even considering SONAMOO's woes, has a better career than someone reporting on cat forensics.

If you're a celebrity and your beloved pet goes missing, anyone would use their platform to ask people to help find the pet. But his guy didn't say anything after his cat went missing for a long time. He is not obligated to say anything, but his actions are not normal if he cared so much for his cat. He paraded himself all over tv and social media like a cat lover. And the excuse of the cat not getting along with the new one. Why did he give in adoption the cat that was with him longer? That doesn't sound like something a cat lover would do.

And I'm not one to defend AKP, but this is all over Naver entertainment news. There are MANY articles about it, among the most read and most commented.

What I'm angry about is Why did they snipped the cat's ear??? Poor cat, that's mutilation, that's a terrible thing for the shelter to do.

It's a very common practice for TNR to snip a small part of the ear after they have fixed the cat, it's just to indicate that they have been fixed as part of a TNR so they don't need to be recaptured. This avoids them having to go through another unnecessary surgery should they ever be caught again. It's painless and done when the cat is under anesthesia and doesn't affect their ear function at all. Reducing cat overpopulation is very important, so this is how they shelters and TNR programs handle it best.

It's sad this kind of behavior happens in Korea. People often think of pets as of toys - when they get bored it's thrown away. And I believe there's no law for pets in Korea so a lot of people doesn't care about homeless animals....

It looks like two different if very very similar cats to me. The noses are colored differently. Of course that photo after the incident should have shown the ear to shut down all the comments. Who knows? But Lucy might have escaped - it happens.
