As you know, BTS is one of the most popular South Korean boy bands, coming from Big Hit Entertainment. After making a debut with the song titled “We Are Bulletproof Pt. 2” in 2013, up until BTS‘ most recent song, which is “Boy with Luv,” they have already won and have been nominated for a lot of awards both in Korea and internationally.
Seeing the many achievements they have accomplished, and how popular BTS are around the world, did you know that they are always accompanied by eight furries in their dorm? Yes, they do have pets! Even though BTS members are superstars, they still are caring people, especially when seeing the interactions between them and their pets.
Are you curious about the pets of BTS members? Would you like to check them out when they interact with them? Let’s see on the next page!
BTS Members and Their Pets
Behind the successful members of BTS, there are little friends that are always with them whenever they’re sad or happy. After BTS members finish with work, these little friends are always accompanying and entertaining them with their cuteness. And sometimes, on social media, BTS members proudly show the fans their beloved cute little friends. Who are they? Of course—their lovely pets! Let’s take a look at the pets of the members of BTS!
RM’s Pet Dog
BTS leader RM, previously known as Rap Monster, has one cute little dog that he named Rap Mon, just like the acronym of his former stage name. Apparently, Rap Mon, the dog, is a male American Eskimo dog breed. Rap Mon currently lives with RM’s parents and is being loved tenderly by RM’s parents and younger sister. RM once tweeted a photo of Monie, Rap Mon’s cute nickname, with the caption, “I want you Monie Monie yup,” a witty reference to BTS’s hit song “Blood, Sweat, Tears.”
Since RM has a very busy schedule, Rap Mon has difficulty recognizing him when he visits. RM once published his sadness on social media saying that Rap Mon only approaches him when he gives him a dog treat. Despite this fact, he constantly uploads photos of him whenever he has a chance. You can see how cute Rap Mon and RM are when they take a photo together or if you are lucky, you can see Rap Mon face to face in RM’s VLive!
Do you want to be hugged just like RM hugs Rap Mon?
He’s such a loving man, as you can see.
Jin’s Pet Dog
The oldest member of BTS, Jin, had a dog named Jjanggu. The Maltese breed dog looked so adorable together with Jin. Jjangu was a male dog who lived with Jin’s parents. Jjanggu who looked very adorable also loved to yawn and smell flowers.
Unfortunately, on September 28th, 2017, Jin posted on BTS’s official fan café that Jjangu had passed away. It was because Jjangu had already reached the lifespan of a Maltese dog. Precisely, Jjangu had been with him for 12 years.
Besides, Jjanggu, Jin also has two sugar gliders named Eomuk and Odeng that were actually gifts from Jin’s parents. These sugar gliders are named after the Korean cuisine fish cake soup. Living as Jin’s sugar glider is probably the life you want, because they have the privilege to live with BTS in their dorm, but because of his constant trips abroad, his parents often take care of them. Odeng and Eomuk made their first appearance on the BTS Comeback Show – DNA. What a great achievement!
Talking about his sugar glider, Jin once said that he was worried to show off his sugar glider pets because it could make young people want to pet them as well. In fact, it needs a lot of treatment and most importantly a responsibility to raise sugar gliders as a pet.
However, sadly, in 2018 Eomuk passed away. Then Jin brought a new sugar glider to accompany Odeng, named Gukmul. Yet, only one year later, in 2019 Jin announced formally in his live broadcast on VLive that Odeng has passed away. According to Jin, Odeng fell down from the bridge in his cage. It appeared the bridge is pretty high.
So, Gukmul, whose name means soup is the only remaining sugar glider that Jin has. Gukmul, the white sugar glider that belongs to Jin now currently stays with Jin’s mom.
Jin’s love for his pets is illustrated in his solo song titled “Tonight.” This ballad song with heartbreaking lyrics was written and produced by himself. Jin told fans that he wrote the song while thinking about his pets. How adorable, isn’t it?
So, if you think that Jin’s sugar gliders, Eomuk, Odeng, and Gukmul are cute, don’t just think to pet sugar gliders before you are ready to raise them!
Suga’s Pet Dog
Everyone, I introduce you to the youngest member of the Min family, Min Holly a.k.a Suga‘s pet!
Holly is a Toy Poodle breed with brown fur. Unlike the name, Holly is a male dog. By the way, the name Holly was given by Suga’s brother. If you look at him closely, you can definitely say that Holly’s stare can also melt your heart just like his dad, Suga.
Do you know the very famous phrase that says dogs mirror owners’ personalities? Well, it has been scientifically proven, actually. And you can see the proof here! Suga is known for his introverted personality which is much like a Toy Poodle. Also, like Suga, Toy Poodles are famous for their loyalty and sweetness. They also show their goofier sides when excited.
It’s so cute to see Suga‘s smile when he’s around Holly or just talking about Holly. Oh, I’m jealous!
Surprisingly, Suga once stated that he is not the type of person who likes dogs. He said that when he thinks about Holly, it hurts him. Since he is normally not the kind of person who likes dogs. But he ended up liking Holly. Suga’s soft spot for Holly can be seen clearly in Suga’s expression in the interview “ASK in a BOX.” Yes, he’s smiling within 1s when mentioning Holly.
J-Hope’s Pet Dog
A dog that is just as cute as the owner. Please welcome, J-Hope‘s cutie pie pet, Mickey!
Normally, when you hear the name Mickey, you are probably thinking about Mickey Mouse, the Disney character, but this Mickey is a Shih Tzu dog breed. Similar to other pets of BTS, Mickey, who is a male dog, lives with J-Hope‘s parents.
With the adorable hair, J-Hope likes to play with Mickey’s hair and put a hairclip there. Mickey is even often dressed in cute outfits. Mickey is now approximately 8 years old. He still looks young, right? Because 8 years of dogs mean 80 years of human age.
But, the things they have in common, among J-Hope and his Shih Tzus are their loyalty and being family-oriented. It is known that Shih Tzus are companion dogs, and their favorite place is to sit on your lap. Therefore, Shih Tzus will be happiest when they are mingling with family.
Oh, what a cutie Mickey is, just like J-Hope!
Jimin’s Pet Dog
Jimin once had a cute dog named Ddosun. Jimin’s late pet was a dog that he already raised since the dog was a puppy.
Unfortunately, the photo above is not Jimin‘s dog, Ddosun. Because some years ago Jimin said that Ddosun, the name that has been included in J-Hope’s rap, already passed away.
He also said that he didn’t want to adopt another pet because he loved Ddosun so much, and claimed that Ddosun was his favorite dog.
Ddosun will always be remembered in Jimin‘s heart!
V’s Pet Dog
Apparently, V is the busiest member of BTS when it comes to raising pets.
The member that was declared the most handsome face in 2017 has three dogs and a cat as his pets living with V’s family. He is such a handsome man with a great love for animals, ya?
Soonshim is a beautiful female white dog, the breed possibly Korean Jindo. Soonshim lives with V’s parents. Soonshim used to appear in clips or photos posted by V though it has been two years or so since he was last seen. But if you are curious, you can see the video on YouTube from 2015.
Ssyongssyong is another dog owned by V. It is white and rather small compared to Soonshim. There is not much information about Ssyongssyong,
V’s Pomeranian Yeontan was first shown in Jin’s Birthday V LIVE on December 4th, 2017. He is the most well-known of all the BTS dogs. When Yeontan, who is three years old now, lived with BTS in the dorm, all of the members were very close to him. All of them were extremely close and had many interactions in the dorm. However, due to BTS’s busy schedule, Yeontan had to go live with V’s parents.
While Kkanji is a Persian-Chinchilla breed with silver-grey fur. Kkanji also lives with V’s parents. Kkanji made his first appearance in public in October 2013. V used to post pictures of Kkjanji yet it was actually 5 years ago. Despite V’s busy schedule with BTS, V and Kkanji are very close. You can see Kkanji sleeping on his lap in the following photo. Are you jealous?
Now, if you see V with his pets, he looks like a father of four kids. He is indeed such a caring and loving man!
Jungkook’s Pet Dog
The youngest member of BTS, who is also popular under the nickname Golden Maknae, Jungkook, has a pet that he has named Gureum. In Korean, Gureum is a word that stands for “cloud,” so some fans also call Jungkook’s pet Cloudie.
Just like the cute maknae of BTS, Gureum is also a cute male Maltese dog. Although Gureum has a cute face, his life actually turned out to be harder than that because Gureum once lived in an animal rescue shelter. According to the BTS fandom, Jungkook got Gureum by adopting him. It is a very wise option to adopt a dog than to buy one if there are lots of dogs waiting to be adopted in a shelter.
When Gureum was alone in Jungkook’s family house, Jungkook always said that he wanted to take care of Gureum in the BTS dorm but the hyungs refused it at first, because their dorm is not a proper environment for a dog.
Gureum is a bit similar to J-Hope’s Mickey, don’t you think? Especially as they both often appear wearing cute outfits. Seeing the picture of Gureum and Jungkook, who do you think is cuter, Jungkook or Gureum?
Seeing that all the BTS members have pets, though Jimin currently doesn’t have one, probably gave you a heavenly idea to raise a pet too. Well, it is not a sin to have pets, but you have to remember that when you decide to have a pet, you have to keep in mind that it is a huge responsibility to take care of them.
Having a pet can be a pleasant activity within a rough day. It can release stress too. Probably this also one of the reasons for some K-Pop artists to raise pets. Find out the other K-idols’ pets, here!
