Gomi and Songgang are Pungsan dogs gifted by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to Moon Jae-in while he was president of South Korea. Pungsan dogs are a very rare breed found only in North Korea, that Kim Jong-un and his late father Kim Jong-il would give as political gifts. In December 2022, Gomi and Songgang were given to a South Korean zoo, after Jae-in claimed that the current government refused to cover the dogs’ expenses. Gomi and Songgang had six puppies together.
