If there’s one thing that SEVENTEEN‘s Hoshi has a soft spot for, it’s the lovely animal that holds a special place in his heart: tigers. Thanks to fans, Hoshi now has two tigers that he can call his babies.
Through a live stream, fans came close to gathering five hundred dollars to gain the chance to adopt a tiger from a Colorado animal sanctuary, with one person who amusingly donated $10.10 USD as a nod to Hoshi’s charming nickname 10:10.
Carats were able to adopt this beautiful striped, white tiger named Timara in Hoshi’s name.
TikTok user herzy_doodle shared the news through a clip that made its way to many fans on Twitter and even became a trending topic on Weverse. It turned out that Timara wasn’t the first tiger that had been adopted for Hoshi.
Carats had also adopted a tiger by the name of Kayla from a zoo in Malaysia, who needed donations to keep her healthy and happy.
Zoo Negara needs fund to maintain the well being of the animals and sustain the zoo’s operation. They relies on ticket sales, edu programs and donations. Today, we decided to step in and adopts Kayla the Malaysian Tiger under Hoshi’s name 🐯🇲🇾💕 호랑해! #StrongerTogether pic.twitter.com/pRFtIRO4k1

Since fans remembered a moment during SVT Club where Hoshi fell for a beautiful white tiger, they know he’ll love finding out about Timara.

No matter how much the SEVENTEEN members point out Hoshi being a human rather than a tiger, no one can stop his horanghae agenda—especially with his tiger babies Timara and Kayla.
