Yeontan is a male dog, he was first shown on December 4, 2017, in Jin's birthday V LIVE.[2] Yeontan is an adorable and small dog and is very close to all the members. In 2017, he used to live with BTS; however, due to their busy schedule, V was not always able to take care of him, so he started to live with V's parents. As 2023, Yeontan lives with V at his apartment in Seoul.



V and Yeontan are incredibly close. While living in the bedroom, he always followed Taehyung, and there were many interactions between them. Taehyung must have been really upset when Yeontan moved because, looking at his tweets on Twitter, he had a very close relationship with his dog.
