It's a well-known fact that V of BTS has a face that gives Greek gods a run for their money, so enough about his ethereal outer beauty. It's time to explore the times Kim Taehyung showcased his dazzling inner beauty.
BTS' V straight up looks like an anime fairytale prince who escaped from angel land. His visuals are unreal and enchanting, but we're sure that you've heard this a thousand times before. So, we'll keep it at that!
Aside from rising to stardom for his handsome features, V has also made his mark in the entertainment industry due to his kindheartedness and award-winning talent.
In celebration of this Bangtan Boy's 25th birthday, we're taking a trip down memory lane to discuss seven of the many times that his inner beauty shined through. Happy V Day, ARMY!
1. His Talent For Making Music
Having written soul-stirring hits, such as "Winter Bear", "Scenery", "Stigma", "Singularity", "Blue & Grey", and "Snow Flower", it goes without saying that BTS' V is one magnificent music maker. Each song that he touches beams with emotional depth and dulcet lullaby vocals that tug at heartstrings effortlessly.
2. His Love For Kids
If you've been watching BTS during their reality show escapades, you may have already noticed that V simply adores children and animals. One of the first instances wherein it became evident that this superstar loves kids was during BTS' American Hustle Life era. While strolling by the beach with Suga, he decided to take a moment to play with some toddlers who were nearby. The cherry on top was when Suga asked him to stop, but he quickly went back to pet the smallest girl on the cheek.
Among several other instances was when he happily gave his hat to a boy in the audience during a concert and when he handed out stickers to children at a McDonalds in New Zealand during their travel series, Bon Voyage.
To top it all off, V just has overall respect and regard for kids, animals, and life in general. Remember, when he wouldn't let Jin kill that mosquito? We quote: "Life is precious."
3. His Fiery Stage Presence
V can be candidly adorable off stage, but once the spotlights hit him on stage, it's fierce mode: on! Nothing and nobody channels the magnitude of stage presence V holds.
Easy with that face. It's too pretty.
4. His Award-Worthy Acting Chops
So far, we only got to see his serious acting skills when he portrayed the role of Han Sung in the 2016 K-Drama, Hwarang, but it was more than enough to make us wish to see him in action again and again...and again. Let's manifest his next TV series soon, ARMY.
5. His Social Butterfly Qualities
V appears to be quite the social butterfly in the entertainment business. Take the Wooga Squad, for instance. This group of celebrity friends composed of BTS V, Park Seo Joon, Peakboy, Park Hyung Sik, and Woo Sik Choi was formed circa Hwarang days, and the boys have been inseparable since!
If you ever wondered why V has so many friends, it's most likely because he's so darn cute!
6. His Love For ARMY
ARMY is one lucky fandom with V playing online games with them, frequently interacting with them on Weverse, and for coining the term, Borahae (I Purple You). Right back at you, V! ARMY will love and trust you for a very long time.
7. His Uplifting Words of Inspiration
Those who think that one cannot be talented, handsome, tall, funny, and smart at the same time, have clearly not met Kim Taehyung yet.
Aside from doing a great job as a K-Pop idol who dominates the world, V is also skilled at imparting words of wisdom, comfort, and inspiration. He has shared his insights and motivations during global events, like the United and Nations General Assembly and multiple digital events this year.
During the Dear Class of 2020 event earlier this year, he shared:
"If there is anyone out there who cannot see where they should go from here forth, I urge you to listen to your heart. Things may feel a little difficult right now, but somewhere out there, luck and opportunity are waiting for you. I believe that...And I look forward to the day that you will stand and tell us your own story."
Happy birthday, Kim Taehyung! Keep letting your beautiful soul shine through. #Borahae!
