Guess what people, it’s 30 December which means it’s V’s birthday. For those people who are still unaware of this global icon’s charm, charisma and talent. (Also, were you living under a rock?) Here’s a quick recap:
Kim Taehyung is a member of a South Korean band BTS (Bangtan boys). Even if you don’t follow kpop you will recognise this name from Billboard music awards and AMA’s. His stage name is V.
On June 13, 2013, he made his debut as a member of BTS on Mnet’s M Countdown with the track “No More Dream” from their debut single album, 2 Cool 4 Skool and has never looked back. He takes active part in writing the lyrics, song composition and dances like an angel.
Though he isn’t the official visual of the group, he is incredibly handsome. He was recently named the most handsome face of 2017 by TC Candler. No one can deny that this man is a visual king.
Here are 13 reasons to love V 💖 Feel free add more in the comment section.
- His Voice
He has an exceptionally good voice, a perfect addition to BTS. RM even thanked him in his letter for audition for BTS rather than playing basketball or saxophone. Armies fall hard for his sexy voice. There are enough videos of him growling or talking in a deep gruff voice.
His vocals sounds strong and stands out from the other members’ voices because he is the only baritone in the vocal line. The other three vocalists are tenors. He has a manly sexy voice and it sounds even more amazing when he harmonizes with Jungkook. Remember the BTS RUN episode when they were in karokae room. He belted out the lyrics like a champ.
Fans wish that he could have more lines (Jin too). He even made covers of English songs, check them out, they are really good.
- His Profile
Armies fall for his unique charm, charisma, humour and dorky nature. He is cute and quirky. He is a bad boy on stage, singing passionately and dancing to his heart’s content (did I mention him being an absolute tease) and a cutiepie behind the scenes. He’s got armies wrapped around his little finger, simple actions like licking his lips, poking his tongue out, wink or smiling etc leave the fans screaming for more. (I did that on purpose 😉 )
- He is a genius
You know how there are some people you wish you knew how their brain works, what their thought process is. He is one of them. He gets it from his personality, quirky, eccentric but also thoughtful. Imagine all the music and concepts he is yet to create.
RM described him as “10% genius and 90% idiot”. Us, fans get to see the idiot part on vline ans interviewe but what about the genius part. Let’s recall BTS Europe Tour
During BTS’ tour in Europe, the boys had fun with their trip and adventure in the foreign land, so they took pictures together and roam around the place freely. When it’s time to change destinations, V realized that his bag went missing. He started to get anxious because there are many important things in his bag, including his passport. Upon learning of the incident, other members started to worry for V, not because he lost his bag, but because the crew is just playing a prank on him, and they are riding in the joke! This is where the true showdown begins.
Rap Monster pretended to call the embassy and requested for a rushed passport. However, Jin suggested that V should be left behind to pick up the passport, so the rest of the members can go ahead. The members tried so hard to suppress their laughter upon seeing V’s burdened face. They can feel V’s mental breakdown for each moment that passes, and that makes it harder for them to keep a straight face. Even Suga cannot hold his laughter anymore, so he stand up for a while and pretended to enjoy the scenery in the train window. Moments later, V expressed in words how bad he feels because the members are making him feel horrible, but Jin confronted him that he lost his bag, so why get angry at them? It was at this point that V shouted, “Do you want me to go home then?” and Jin replied, “Just go then!” and V walked out.
Seconds later, V returned with a blank expression on his face, saying “I’m back.” and Jin answered immediately “congratulations”. All of them started to laugh, not because V fell for the prank, but because he’s a genius who managed to flip the situation! It was revealed that minutes before the shouting match, V asked the staff if it’s a hidden camera, because he knew it all along that the members are just kidding around. Besides, his eyes “aren’t big for no reason”, so he silently observed how bad and terrible the members’ acting are, that even without using his keen eye, he noticed that everything was just a setup to prank him.

- He is a good actor
It was his dream to act and he fulfilled it. He played the role of Hansung in Hwarang. Even though it’s his first time acting in a kdrama, he stole hearts of fans all over the world. His character was playful and mischievous, acting cute but also bearing the sorrow and weight of his family’s name on his shoulders. He portrayed both sides of the character with expertise. But of course we have seen different sides of his personality in BTS videos.
There are videos of him circulating on the web in which he lip-syncs to various other sounds, from cartoons to people. This man has made acting his part of his daily life.
- Talented photographer
He is a talented photographer, capturing the moment. Armies are thankful that he shares his passion with them. He uploads his photos under the name ‘Vante’
Here are some of them:
- Social butterfly
This man is not only the most charming person with a magnetic personality. He is also somebody who connects with others well. His other industry friends like Park Seo-joon, Park Hyung-sik, Do Ji-han, Cho Yoon-woo, the visual of Shinee, Choi Min-ho, top actor Park Bo-gum, Yook Sungjae (BTOB), Suho (EXO) and Kim Min-jae.
He also revealed that he has a group chat room with VIXX’s Hongbin, B1A4’s Gongchan, and EXO’s Suho, but they don’t talk in it.
Even his social circle is filled with beautiful people.
- His love for his family
We all love a family man, he shares stories about his grand mother and talks lovingly about his family.
Can you be anymore perfect?
He has a great relationship with the rest of the BTS members. Their brotherhood and chemistry translates well on the stage and on screen. They all take care of each other. It’s like a cute family with Jin and Namjoon as the elders of the family. Hyungs and Maknae’s have a perfect relationship.
- He is good with kids
All those who have Tae as their bias have already fantasized about spending their whole life with him. Perfect boyfriend, father, am I right? Well, here is the proof that he is going to be a good dad.
His role model is his own father.
He cherishes kids and treats them with love and kindness. Just see how he acts with kids at fan sign events. ( *Daydreams*)
- V with pets
Tae is really good with animals. Remember BTS Run episode in which they all had to train dogs. This cutiepie kept playing with it. He recently got a cute puppy, YeonTan. It is so tiny, basically a ball of floof. Now well all know that puppy is the luckiest pet in the world right now because he is with our Tae. Just wait for all the cute puppy videos we are going to get. That puppy is basically Bangtan’s kid.
The puppy first made an appearance on Jin’s bday vlive. Held up in Tae’s arms and became a twitter trend. Tae posted 2 new videos of YeonTan following him around.
- Gucci King: His fashion sense
His fashion sense is epic. You can count on him to make any place, location whether a street or the airport into the runaway for a designer label. He loves Gucci and is often found adorning Gucci stuff. His watches, choker, jackets, shoes everything is Gucci. *Give him a contract already*
Here is a petition started by a fan to make him a Gucci model or ambassador.
For more detailed list of his Gucci expenses. Check this out.
- His fan service
He has one of the best fan service. He is always smiling, laughing, interacting with the fans. He treats them so well that it will make you wish you were attending the fan meet and greets. Helping one fan at a time.
- Ethereal beauty
His beauty is out of this world (no reference to him being called an alien because of his quirky personality). He has the most perfect look. He has such good body proportion. (Music industry puts a lot of emphasis on body image.)
Wishing him a happy birthday, a blessed and healthy life. 💖
