Everyone has their favorite idol bias and we enjoy seeing them perform, staying well and enjoying free time, but there is a different idol that we are learning about that is all the rage and may even have their very own Instagram accounts. We are speaking about the loveable pups that are always there to bring laughter, joy and peace to the idols that work hard for their careers. Let’s find out a little more about some of those famous pups.
1. Taehyung & Yeontan
I’m sure most of you know of Kim Taehyung, member of BTS, but his pup is almost as famous. Taehyung’s Pomeranian has gained a lot of attention from fans for his adorable looks and cute interactions with the members. The puppy was first shown on Jin’s birthday vlive, but he was formally introduced to the public in December of 2017, with a tweet saying the pup’s name was Yeontan, which means coal in Korean. In the tweet Taehyung also said “우리집 새식구”, meaning “my family.” Fans speculate Yeontan’s birthday is the 6th or 7th of September 2017, which would make him 2 years old at the time of this article. Yeontan used to live with BTS, but had to move in with Taehyung’s parents due to BTS’ busy schedules.
2. Chungha & Bambi
This former I.O.I member has stolen millions of hearts, but so has her dog! Most people got to know Chungha’s dog, Bambi, through the special dog episode of weekly idol. Several idols brought their pet dogs in for a special episode of the show, one of those idols was Chungha. She has since shown and talked about Bambi several times, but the Weekly Idol episode was one of her first big public appearances. Bambi’s birthday has not been specified, but in the episode, which was filmed in late 2017 and released in early 2018, Chungha stated she was 4 years old. That would make the dog around 6 years old at the time of writing this article. In the weekly idol episode. Chungha also explained the dog was named Bambi because Chungha’s mum kept calling her that due to her long legs, which made her look like a deer. Bambi gave birth to 3 puppies in 2017, Dakgol, Bamtol and Dodo. Soon after, one of them, Bamtol, was adopted by Ryu Jina, Chungha’s manager.
3. Jooheon & Sanche
Most people know of Minhyuk’s dog because of the Weekly Idol dog special, but there’s another Monsta X member with a pet dog. Sanche is Jooheon’s 6-year-old family dog, who he’s brought to fansigns and vlives. When Sanche was first introduced, fans believed he was actually Kihyun’s dog, as the pup would follow Kihyun around more than his actual owner. Sanche lives with Jooheon’s parents and he has stated that, as his mum has no daughter, she loves to dress Sanche up in dresses and cute clothes.
4. Jennie – Kai and Kuma
Blackpink are known for having many pets, as each member has at least one. Jennie’s dogs are two of the most known pets in the fandom though.
