On a web site describing the character, Namjoon is “One other cute pup, straight from the Spiritrealm, is right here to soften our hearts.” Fortunately, regardless of the same old traits of the imugi, Namjoon is simply as soft-hearted as BTS’s chief.
Nevertheless, Namjoon has been educated to be a vegetarian. So, no want to fret about this cute little man consuming your face. Except, after all, he someway escapes the petting zoo and reverts to his pure state. However there’s no method that might ever occur.
One proficient ARMY even discovered an image that appeared to completely present the resemblance between the characters, emphasizing the colour and RM’s lovely eyes.

But, it isn’t for any destructive motive. On GoodReads, the creator defined that RM wasn’t used as a gumiho as a result of she thought his character labored higher elsewhere in her universe.
And the reason being as a result of Namjoon is a complete Samjogo (additionally widespread in East Asian mythology). Their clan motto is ‘Management and Knowledge’, and if that’s not Namjoon, I don’t know what’s.
