Kim Taehyung (stage name V) is one of the main dancers and vocalists of K-pop boyband sensation BTS.
Born December 30th, 1995 in Daegu, South Korea, Taehyung dreamed from a young age of becoming a musician. He spent his formative years singing, dancing and playing the saxophone before auditioning for BigHit Entertainment and signing on as the 6th member of BTS.
Known for his deep baritone voice and striking good looks, Taehyung’s role in BTS is that of a singer, dancer and visual.
On January 31st, Taehyung released his first solo venture of 2019, Scenery. The soulful track features a soft melodic tune and poetic lyrics. Check it out below!
Taehyung is not only gifted in the song and dance department: he is also an aspiring actor with a talent for drama! In 2016, V took on his first television role as Hansung in the K-drama Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth.
Taehyung’s acting efforts are not limited to this role. BTS frequently showcase their acting chops in the band’s various music videos. Their 2017 hit Spring Day, in particular, stands out as evidence of Taehyung’s (and BTS’s) excellent acting abilities.
Also check out the short film for V’s solo track Stigma, released as promotional material for BTS’s hit 2016 Wings album:
