SHINee Minho Delights K-pop Fans With Own Version of IVE Wonyoung’s ‘Puppy Refund’ Trend

SHINee Minho is 31 years old, but his youthful visuals and cuteness have fans in a headlock!

On September 11, the second-gen K-pop icon became a hot topic in numerous online communities and social media platforms when his video from an online fan sign went viral.

SHINee Minho, right? It got stronger and darker... storm charisma


In particular, the video which was taken on the 9th, contained Minho reacting to IVE Jang Wonyoung’s trending “puppy refund” clip where she showed her cute acts and lines.

The video goes like:

“Where’s the refund at the puppy cafe? I did a woof woof. I even winked at you. I did the puppy’s ears, too. That’s too much!”

Initially, Minho’s expression turned serious while watching the video but his eyes slowly widened after seeing the series of cute acts of the female idol.

At first, he seemed quite embarrassed at the request of a Shawol (fandom name) to copy it. However, for a moment, Minho took courage for the fan.

He recreated the “puppy refund” video and the fan who made him do it immediately shared it on Twitter, hereinafter, X and it went viral with over 2.7 million views and 628k views for two separate clips!

The fan who shared it then shared the messages:

“There’s no refund in the dog cafe! You foolish dog… You’re so lovely.”

She added:

“I showed him a video of Princess Wonyoung, and he worked really hard. I’m sorry I made you do this.”

While there are negative words criticizing the OP for making Minho do a “cringey” trend during the fan call, many fans find it too appealing and cute instead.

  • “Minho’s reaction is no joke.”
  • “Minho is really handsome.”
  • “There is a reason why SHINee lasts for a long time.”

  • “Wah, this is a type of dog that will give you a black eye.”
  • “His facial expression is amazing.”
  • “If Jang Wonyoung is a pomeranian, Minho is a golden retriever.”
  • “If you look at SHINee, you will be able to understand why they last this long. They are always working hard and professionally on stage but you can see that they are also sincere to their fans.”

Meanwhile, SHINee, the group to which Minho belongs, is a five-member team from SM Entertainment that debuted in 2008.

The group made a comeback with their 8th full-length album, “HARD,” in June 2023, and met their fans Shawols through fan meetings and concerts.
