If you don’t know what Animal Crossing is, chances are, you might have actually heard about it before. For those of you who are curious, Animal Crossing is a life simulation video game where players take the role of a character who moves to an island and works on building their community from scratch. As its release happened to be during the COVID-19-related quarantine, K-pop fans had time on their hands to manifest their love for the genre through this game.
Here are five ways these K-pop/Animal Crossing crossovers were portrayed amidst this current craze!
1. Idol and fandom mentions
