No:ze, a dancer who was previously embroiled in a controversy over her mistreatment of SNS advertisers, has reportedly adopted a dog. Her recent actions have become a hot topic in online communities such as Theqoo and Women’s Generation, where posts titled “Noze adopted a stray dog” have garnered significant attention.
An Instagram account named “Angels’ Nest” posted a long message along with a video featuring Noze holding the rescued dog on April 28th. The owner of the account provided background information about the dog, stating that it was one of three siblings who were rescued two months after their birth date, which was coincidentally on the same day as their mother’s euthanasia. The three siblings later spent three years in the shelter, depending on each other for support.
The account owner further shared that Noze is a volunteer at the shelter, and after taking the dog home, she visited “Angels’ Nest” seven times to provide care. As a result, Noze decided to adopt the dog, named Cheong-i.
The account owner carefully observed Noze’s affection for the dog before ultimately entrusting Cheong-i to her care, also promising that they would frequently visit the shelter together. In the accompanying video, Noze can be seen smiling warmly while holding Cheong-i.
On the same day, Noze shared a cheerful photo of Cheong-i on her Instagram story. The post garnered a warm response from the online communities, with comments such as “Cheong-i looks much brighter now,” “Noze and the dog resemble each other,” “Noze’s volunteering efforts before adopting are commendable,” and “I hope they take care of and love each other until the end.”
Noze rose to fame as a dancer for EXO member Kai’s solo song “Mmmh” in 2020. With her exceptional visuals, she received many love calls from the entertainment and advertising industries. However, she faced a backlash in July last year due to the controversy surrounding her treatment of SNS advertisers. After apologizing, she kept a low profile until recently, when she reappeared as a dancer on SBS “Inkigayo.”
