According to owner Kwang-Ho Lee, who opened Thanks Nature Cafe in 2011, the shop has become even more popular this year because 2015 is known as the Year of the Sheep in the Chinese zodiac.

As you can see in the video, the lambs are quite outspoken and have no problem baaing at and jumping on Lee, who can often be seen cleaning up after them and tending to their needs.

We appreciated the fact that Milky and Lily have their own private inner pen, which is off-limits to people so that they can escape from human contact whenever they feel the need.

In addition to coffee, the cafe also cooks up waffles and other sweet treats. However, these are only allowed to be enjoyed in the indoor area away from the sheep.

Guests can even charge their phones and use the cafe’s free WiFi.

But being animal lovers, we had to wonder what happens to these fuzzy friends after their stay in Hongdae. “The sheep only stay for one year at our cafe,” Lee told us. “And then they’ll go to a farm located in Daegwallyeong in Gangwon Province. Then other lambs come to our cafe.”

UPDATE: Milky and Lily returned to their farm in the mountains in July when it became too hot for them to stay in Seoul. The café welcomed its new residents, a boy and girl pair named Bocksil and Mongsil, last week.

If you ever find yourself in the Hongdae area, don’t forget to stop at the Thanks Nature Cafe and say hi to these fine fluffy friends!
