From on stage to off stage, V personality can be completely different person. Whether he’s acting, pursuing solo music, or is promoting as a member of BTS, he shows a variety of sides of himself with new and unique charms.
Not only does V change depending on what he’s pursuing, the BTS members note that his personality has changed as time passed. Previously, he was known as a free-spirited member.
These unique charms are what helped him attract fans. As time has passed, the members revealed that V has become an even more mature and selfless person.
In the same way, various other sides of V have taken shape throughout BTS’s career. He told Weverse Magazine that solo artist V and BTS’s V not only have different personas, but also sound different.
I think my voice in BTS’ music and in my solo music should be different. That could be yet another thing that’s attractive about me that I can show off, but it could also be a tool at my disposal. I kind of like making different characters for myself, so you could look at it as something of a persona.
He shared that the persona he portrays with BTS is too complex to describe due to all of the charms he can show as a member.
I don’t think I can define it in one phrase. If we look at me like I’m a tree, then I think you could say I have thousands of branches. The different fruit on each of those branches each represents a different one of V’s attractive points. So, while I could become something that can be explained, I don’t really think I absolutely need to. So it’s not really something that can be put into words.
I’m just trying to create and show one of the many charms that I can show off as V. If you’re asking what kind of V I’m portraying within BTS, I would say one who sings and dances. That’s one of V’s thousands of personas and it’s up to the viewers to come to their own conclusion.
V hopes to expand on his personas as he pursues new things. From solo music to acting, these different sides of him present a new image to the audience and showcase different charms.
I hope I can come up with a whole lot of personas: singer, solo singer, actor or, later on, photographer or regular old Kim Taehyung. Or when I get into something else. I want to create so many different personas that there’s thousands of versions of myself out there and I can become the kind of person who has a new me good enough to do something different every day. I think that’s my ultimate dream, speaking as an artist.
ARMY can’t wait to see V’s development as an artist as he pursues the second chapter of BTS! Check out more from his interview below.
