That’s a very strange and unusual name. You must not have heard people naming their dogs like so but the K-Pop singers do what others don’t. The name Namjoon gave his dog is supposedly derived from the singer’s former stage name Rap Monster which is now abbreviated to RM. Rapmon is a unique name and actually depicts how much Kim loved his dog that he literally gave him his own name!

The white snow like beauty is a male American Eskimo and it is the only pet Namjoon owns. Rapmon lives with RM’s family. Since he’s always on the go, he can’t look after his dog all the time. Safe to say, the doggo still has a lot of people around that love him and pay attention to his silly acts.

Though the singer and Rapmon have long been separated, Namjoon still loves him as much and keeps uploading his photos and videos whenever he visits his hometown. The best thing about owning a dog is that no matter how far you two are, they always remember you!
