Since BTS‘s V revealed details for his upcoming debut solo album, Layover, ARMYs noticed that his dog Yeontan was included a lot from the cover art to even the release date.

And if that was not enough, he seemingly starred in V’s new MV “Rainy Days.”
He was sitting right here like

V even thoughtfully included details in the MV related to Yeontan. The music video is primarily from his POV, and the color palette is blue and yellow, the few colors dogs can detect.
Apparently Taehyung made on purpose the whole "Rainy Days" mv mostly in yellow and blue palette for showing us yeontan's perspective since dogs can only perceive those 2 colors, like his mind never fails to amaze me omg 🥺😭 pic.twitter.com/ojte0VQPCi

Later after the MV’s premiere, V held a live broadcast via Weverse. He excitedly announced that V had made his debut.

Yet, V revealed some shocking information regarding Yeontan.
The “Rainy Days” MV was filmed in Madrid, Spain. So, V traveled for the shoot.

Yeontan, on the other hand, did not travel. So, that is not actually Yeontan in the MV! It’s a lookalike.
I couldn’t bring Tannie to Spain, …so it’s a friend who looked the most like Tannie.
🐯 Shall I tell you a behind story?
