The Los Angeles Zoo is introducing its newest addition: a baby pudu with a K-Pop connection.

"Haechan" is a 1-month-old pudu, which is a petite deer species from South America.

The name was voted on by fans of the popular K-Pop band NCT.

Fans have long compared one of the band members, named Haechan, to the adorable animal. They have even taken to calling him "pudu" as a nickname.

The fan-naming campaign raised $2,500 to help endangered species.
