1. NCT Doyoung

NCT’s vocalist Doyoung has totally embraced his resemblance to a rabbit, and even uses a rabbit emoji when posting on social media so that fans know it’s him. His round eyes and small nose are super similar to those of the world’s cutest herbivore, and he even resembles a rabbit when he eats!

MAMAMOO’s rapper Moonbyul has a sultry voice that’s totally at odds with her adorable features – especially her bunny-like smile! Her big, beautiful grin is totally reminiscent of a rabbit, and her habit of scrunching her nose when she laughs definitely increases the resemblance.

Former Wanna One member and soloist Kang Daniel has a lot of charms, including his hidden ability: he can make his face perfectly resemble that of a rabbit!

Jisoo has truly earned her nickname “Jisoo Turtle Rabbit Kim” with her gorgeous visuals.

8. TWICE Nayeon

TWICE’s Nayeon may be the eldest member of the group, but she’s also the resident aegyo queen and adorable bunny. Her bunny-like front teeth are especially emphasized when she smiles, and they only add to her charms. With the addition of the bunny hat, the resemblance is even stronger!

9. BTS Jungkook

This bunny costume suits BTS’s maknae Jungkook almost a little too well – probably because he looks so much like an adorable baby bunny! His big, bright eyes and bunny smile along with his toned physique has earned him the nickname “Muscle Bunny,” and the nickname seems to suit him just as well as the onesie.
