An award-winning performer and the singer-songwriter behind “Winter Bear,” BTS’ V loves his dog and hates shoes. One of the vocalists in the wildly popular K-pop group, V is known for being a bit eccentric. Regardless, he’s a talented singer, songwriter, and dancer. 

V, whose real name is Kim Taehyung, performs alongside RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, and Jungkook on hits such as “Dynamite” and “Life Goes On.” But when it comes to V’s celebrity crush, his picks differ from most of the other BTS members.

When he’s not performing, recording, or writing music, V is one of the BTS members who enjoy watching movies. He often shares his recommendations with fans, including Shawshank Redemption, Call Me by Your Name, and About Time.
