Pudu Named After NCT's Haechan Passes Away

The pudu named after NCT member Haechan has passed away.


On June 28, Delaware DNREC's official handle tweeted out that the Brandywine Zoo's three-year-old southern pudu Haechan had passed away. It had been only six months since he had been shifted from the Los Angeles Zoo to Delaware.



Born at the LA Zoo in 2018, the pudu gained international attention due to his uncanny resemblance to NCT's Haechan. Following this, NCT's fans won the Facebook fundraiser to sponsor the tiny deer and he too was named Haechan.



Considered an incredible ambassador for his species, the pudu had its own Twitter account where fans would get updates about pudu Haechan aka Minisun.



Meanwhile, Haechan along with the rest of NCT 127 had visited the pudu in May 2019 at the LA Zoo.
