BTS‘s V is using his massive influence to bring attention to a talented, small-time creator!
With his music, encouragement, and loving personality, V has improved the lives of ARMYs around the world. His unofficial endorsements have also made dreams come true for aspiring artists and businesses.
Recently, a YouTube creator by the name of Matthew Chun went from having under 300 subscribers to over 50,000 after V shared a link to his video 17 and Lost Memories on the Weverse app.
V called Chun “goat,” an acronym for “greatest of all time.” Talk about high praise!
ARMYs flocked to Chun’s dreamy, autobiographical video by the thousands, shooting its views up from less than 200 to over one million!
In his “About” section, Chun describes himself as a high school student who enjoys making videos about his life.
Hi! Welcome. I’m a Highschooler living in Seoul, South Korea that loves making movies in my free time about my travels, day-to-day life, action, etc. I make quality films using Final Cut Pro X and try to make them engaging. Feel free to give any comments about my work. Enjoy!
— Matthew Chun
How has he reacted to going viral? In a pinned comment, he thanked fans for this “very overwhelming” experience.
This isn’t the first time V has shone the spotlight on independent creators. He brought big business to a struggling brand by wearing their hand-braided bracelets, and he completely sold out an artists’ stock by wearing their pin to the airport!
