It's my understanding that the Koreans do not have a lot of experience with dogs as pets, or with the concept of pets. It's only fairly recently that they have begun taking animals into their households as family members, at least that's what I've read. I am forced to conclude that, cartoons aside, they do not have a highly developed sense of what is cute and loveable in a real-life animal. For now, the fact that Mr. Pooh is small and furry will do for them.
On my desk? Heck, I've got a big 24" x 30' up on my wall ;D
Really though, I think Pooh/Lala is just a very old dog, and they wanted one that was not going to be distracting in the background.
I saw one of those 'NG' shows once where they had a show with a young child who kept on vocalizing during a scene. And one time, in 'Who's My Love', little Joon is walking around in the background, opening a chest of drawers, until an adult nonchalantly grabs him. The same sort of problems would occur if Mr. Pooh was a more active dog.
Mr. Pooh is quiet and stays put, which is probably what they want.
[This is supposed to be a pic of Suk-hyun and Dae-jeong with Mr. Pooh. I can only see a fragment on my computer. Maybe you will have better luck ]
You're probably right, Mr. Soju. Let's hope he makes it to the end of the series! But if he doesn't, they can just put a sweater on a stuffed animal and sit him down in a box in the background, and bob's yer uncle.

Soft o'er the blue ocean.Late glows the autumn Light.High in the frosty sky,the wild geese honk on wing so cold.With a grieving heart I roll without sleep the whole night.The dying moon shines on my bow and sword."Yi Sun Shin"
