Jin of BTS wrote the song ‘Tonight’ about his pets

Jin released a solo song titled “Tonight” in June 2019 for BTS FESTA. He wrote and produced the song himself. BTS fans loved the ballad for Jin’s amazing vocals and the song’s heartbreaking lyrics. When Jin released the song, he told fans he wrote it while thinking about his pets.

“Hello, this is Jin. [‘Tonight’] is a song I wrote while thinking about my pets. It’s my first produced song, I hope you liked it,” Jin wrote in a post to ARMY.

In the past few years, many of Jin’s pets passed away. His family dog, Jjangu, lived with Jin’s family for 12 years. Jjangu passed away in 2017. 

Jin loves a type of exotic pet known as sugar gliders. His sugar gliders named Odeng and Eomuk lived with Jin in BTS’s dorm for awhile. When BTS’s schedule increased Odeng and Eomuk lived with Jin’s parents.

Eomuk passed away in 2018 and Odeng passed away in 2019. After Eomuk passed away, Jin bought a sugar glider named Gukmul. The sugar glider is still alive.

V has a dog named Yeontan

V’s dog Yeontan is a Pomeranian and is very popular in the BTS fandom. ARMY recently celebrated Yeontan’s birthday. While Yeontan was growing up, he lived with the BTS members in their dorm. Because of this, all of the members of BTS are very close with Yeontan.

When BTS’s schedule grew more hectic, V’s parents started taking care of Yeontan. V also has a cat named Kkanji and two dogs named Soonshim and Sangdol who live with his parents.

BTS member Jimin does not have any pets

Jimin is currently the only member of BTS who does not have any pets. Jimin had a dog named Ddosun, but the dog unfortunately passed away. After his favorite dog died, Jimin never adopted another dog.

However, Jimin is known for his love of animals, particularly dogs and cats. He loves V’s dog Yeontan, and anytime BTS films content with animals Jimin always lights up.

“jimin with animals is my love language,” wrote a fan on Twitter.
