WayV officially has 10 members now with the addition of their newest kitten, Leon. The group is a sub-unit of SM Entertainment’s NCT, which currently has 21 members. At the rate WayV is adopting new pets, they will have more members than all of NCT by the end of the year.
WayV previously adopted two pets in May
WayV debuted in January 2019 with seven members: Kun, Ten, Lucas, WinWin, Xiaojun, Hendery, and Yangyang. The group is known for their stellar music, with fans often citing that their albums have “no skips.” Offstage, the members are one big family, and fans love watching their chaos on social media and their reality show Dream Plan.
After WayV’s “Beyond Live” virtual concert on May 3, the group introduced their eighth member, Louis, an adorable Siamese kitten. As if Louis content was not enough, Lucas revealed that WayV actually grew to be nine members with Bella, a Beagle puppy.
WayV adopted another kitten
Recently, the members of WayV revealed that the group now has 10 members. In addition to Louis and Bella, the group adopted another kitten. Leon, the newest addition, appears to be an Abyssinian.
Naturally, the members of WayV have already posted tons of photos on social media of Leon interacting with Louis and Bella. It’s clear Leon fits right in with WayV’s family, and fans are already in love with Leon too.
“welcome to the wayv family LEON,” a fan tweeted.
