Fans of Harry Potter would probably be familiar with the Patronus Charm. It’s one of the most powerful defence tactic, as explained in the popular movie and book franchises.
How to summon it? In Remus Lupin’s words, “With an incantation, which will work only if you are concentrating, with all your might, on a single, very happy memory.”
A wizard’s patronus is often an animal that best describes his or her personality. Harry Potter’s is a stag, Snape’s was a doe, and Hermione’s is an otter. And according to Pottermore, mine is a West Highland Terrier – but you probably didn’t need to know that.
But it got us thinking, what if Korean celebrities had a patronus? We took a wild guess what the animals would be based on their personality, with a little help of what each patronus represents, according to QuoteV.

With his bright and earnest personality, we reckon Bogum’s patronus would be a collie. The animal is friendly and sociable, and based on previous interviews and personal accounts given by his fans and fellow workers, he seems to be a good fit with this patronus.

Dragon, ofc. Dragons are a rare type of patronus, and it’s befitting of the Big Bang leader who has immense musical talents.

A relationship with hippogriffs is built on trust, and similarly, Heechul is the type who would give it all to people whom he trusts.

Quiet and introverted, an owl describes D.O. well. An owl is seen as being a good consultant/guide, and this aptly describes the EXO vocalist whom his fellow members have described as one who gives sincere, level-headed advice.

The actor has been described by his co-stars as quite a jokester. Park Kiwoong described him as someone who is shy around others initially, but once you get to know him, he is actually funny and would pull pranks on others. This sounds a lot like the fennec.

SHINee’s leader is often described as caring and loyal. He often takes good care of the members and is intelligent, which is why we reckon his patronus should be a dog.

Like a lion, he is charismatic and quiet. Lion also represents strength, which Woobin clearly has – on one episode of Running Man, he struck a stronger punch on the game machine than Kim Jongkook!

The raccoon patronus is looked upon as a symbol of disguise. The raccoon adapts to situations and may even wear a “mask” – in the same way the Infinite member reportedly has two sides to him: L, who is aloof and cool, and Myungsoo (his real name), who is playful and dorky.
