  About V  뷔

V is a member of BTS.

V was born Kim Taehyung 김태형 on Saturday, December 30, 1995, in Daegu.

Like fellow member Jimin, he was born in the Chinese Year of the Pig.  His zodiac star sign is Capricorn.  He’s 178 cm or 5'10" tall.  His blood type is AB.

V, Suga, and Jimin have attended Global Cyber University.  He also went to Korea Art School.  He has a younger sister and younger brother.  He lived in Daegu and Kojang before moving to Seoul.

He used to play the saxophone.  He made his acting debut in 2016 with “Hwarang.”  Bang Sihyuk, Big Hit Entertainment’s CEO, gave him his stage name.  Initially, he didn’t know how to pronounce it.

For fun, he goes on-line and searches for unpopular music.  His favorite foods are japchae and any kind of meat.  His favorite number is ten.  His favorite colors are black, white, and green.  He bites his nails.  His favorite items are his computer, clothes, shoes, accessories, and the oversized dolls he collects.  His favorite animal is the lion.  He likes photography.  His shoe size is US men’s 8.  He likes bubbles.  His favorite kind of weather is sunny.

His role model is his father, who takes good care of his children and is scolded by his wife a lot.  In ten years, V wants to be taking his future children (Taekwon and Taegeuk) to the zoo to feed shrimp crackers to the pigeons.  He wants to be a cool dad with good fashion sense.

The other members say that V is a horrible cook.  He said that Suga once accidentally hurt his feelings by teasing him about his smile.  Rap Monster chose V as the member who’s worst at dating, because V “thinks of unconventional things to do on a date that typically a normal person wouldn’t think of.”  The BTS members chose V as the member with the worst sleeping habits.  If he’s uncomfortable in bed, he’ll kick and scream, and before he goes to sleep, he demands that his members bring him a glass of water.

If V had to choose a word to describe himself, he’d choose “monkey.”  Once when he was young, a chimpanzee spit on him at the zoo.  Ever since then, his friends have called him the chimpanzee’s enemy.
