Jungkook’s dog Bam is very popular as a new family of BTS.
The appearance of walking and playing next to Jungkook is like a father and a son, isn’t it?
However, since Bam has just been released to the public, you may often be wondering what kind of dog he is.
In this article, we will introduce BTS Jungkook Dog and his time when he had Bam and what kind of dog he is, with episodes!
When Did Jungkook Keep Bam?
The first time Bam appeared in front of the ARMY was in the popular content “IN THE SOOP 2”.
The official poster released on September 13 already depicted Bam!
On October 14, the day before the broadcast date, a photo of the real thing was released, and the topic was “Will real dogs also come out?”
The identity of the dog is introduced in the content, and it turns out that it is Jungkook’s dog.
It’s not clear when they started keeping them, but you can guess from Tete’s photo on Weverse of Bam when he was a baby. Judging from Tete’s hairstyle and costume, it seems that it is around October or November 2020. It’s amazing that you’ve been keeping them for more than a year.
In fact, Bam was released before In the Soop 2! It took place on September 1st, Jungkook’s birthday VLIVE. When I showed the lock screen during the live broadcast, I saw Bam in the picture.
When ARMY learned that they had started keeping Bam, they were very excited, saying, “That smelled like that!” Maybe you wanted to show your cute dog a little!

What Kind of Dog is Jungkook’s Dog Bam?
The origin of the name is not clear, but it seems that “밤 (Bam)” means “night” or “chestnut”.
The Doberman is a breed born for escorts and is known as a police dog or a military dog.
When you hear the word Doberman, many people may have an image of a cool dog with a short tail and standing ears.
Let’s take a look at Bam’s profile!
Name: 전 밤 / Jeong Bam (Bam)
Dog Breed: Doberman
Age: 1 year old

Actually, Dobermans originally have a long tail and drooping ears, but it is common to shorten the tail and ears because it is a weakness when escorting. Recently, however, from the viewpoint of animal welfare, it is prohibited to cut off the tail and the ear in Europe. If you look at Bam, he has ears hanging down from his long tail as he was born.
Some ARMY members say that Jungkook may have inherited the name Bam from a breeder who has animal welfare in mind. The character of the Doberman is said to be “spoiled”, “gentle”, “intelligent”, “curious”, “loyal to the family” and “wary”. In addition, he seems to “like to move and run”, so I feel that it is somewhat similar to Jungkook.

Episodes with Bam and Jungkook, BTS members
If you watch the episode of Bam, you can clearly see that he is very loyal and loves Jungkook.
When Jungkook walks out the window, he slams the window and barks a little impatiently.
Sometimes he looks at Tete and asks for help, which is also very cute. When Jungkook came back, he looked very relieved. You can understand Jungkook’s feelings abou being naughty.
Not only do they play nicely, but they also show how to protect Jungkook. Bam is wary of whether his true character has come out by coming to an unknown land. Seeing Bam like that, Jungkook says softly, “Don’t be alarmed.”
Bam is very obedient to the other members and even plays well with Jimin and Tete!
Jin is played by Bam, and Namjoon’s snug between his legs, and he is said to be “like a member of the family”.
He seems to be especially good friends with Jimin and even kinships and runs up to him when he sees him! Jimin attracts not only people but also dogs, indeed.
There is also an episode where you can see that Jungkook is very responsible as an owner.
When Tete asks “Where did Bam sleep?” Jungkook replies, “He slept on the gauge. Bam have to sleep on the gauge. Don’t sleep with people.”
In the ARMY who saw this situation, it was talked about that “Guku did his homework when he greeted Bam.” When playing or sleeping, it is very important for dogs to separate the scenes and give them a sharp edge.
It seems that Jungkook’s proper discipline and training of Bam has created a relationship of trust between the two of them. It is easy to see that pampering is not the only thing that is love.
