Yeon-tan’s First Appearance
Basically, Yeon-tan appeared for the first time accidentally, when he showed up during BTS’s Jin’s birthday celebration through the V-Live Channel on December 4th, 2017. At that time, V suddenly appeared in the V-Live session while holding something in his arms. And guess what? It was a cute little puppy! At that time, Yeon-tan was still looking tiny and small, and was in BTS’s V’s arms. Since it was V’s pet, it’s no wonder that V and Yeon-tan were having such a strong relationship. They were really close, to the point that V found out it was upsetting him if Yeon-tan was moved, due to their close relationship.
While Yeon-tan was living with the other BTS members, the dog lived in V’s bedroom. There’s a lot of interactions between them, and Yeon-tan also started becoming closer with the rest of the BTS member. Unfortunately, due to the group’s busy schedule, currently Yeon-tan was being taken care by V’s parents.

From his first appearance, we could see that Yeon-tan was looking tiny, but currently we can seen that he has grown up, and has thick fur that increases his cuteness, as well! Not only that, some ARMY’s have their own theory that V named his puppy after Yeon-tan because of its black fur, and also the ‘tan’ in ‘Yeon-tan’ was almost like bang-‘tan’!
