The director, Jo Euiseok shares behind the scenes stories about each character in the film. Here is a translation summary of what he had to say about Junho~
He mentioned that Junho's character was supposed to be a giraffe and wanted to find an actor with a long neck. However, after finding Junho, even though his neck was long, the director wanted to find a more suitable nickname. He told Junho to suggest one and after thinking really deeply, he said "Pikachu!"
The director questioned him "Is Pikachu even an animal!?" After which, the director heard that his fans call him Squirrel. And so he phoned Junho and said he has decided on the nickname.
Coincidentally, Junho said he thought of a nickname too.
And so, they said it together, "Squirrel."
