BTS’ V attracted attention by showing off the aspect of an ‘idol textbook’, endlessly praised in Japan by a bunch of idols.
V is loved as a wannabe star, who is the ‘object of devotion’ in the confession of many stars for his excellent performance, attractive appearance, courteous attitude, cute and friendly personality.
Recently, through an interview with VIVI (a famous Japanese fashion magazine), Ikezaki Rihito, a member of the Japanese boy group INI (a group formed through viewers’ voting in ‘Produce 101 Japan Season 2‘) revealed that V was his role model.
Moreover, V is also the name that suddenly appeared among a bunch of juniors on the list of ‘the objects of envy’ selected by the members of ENHYPEN, a group that formed through Mnet’s idol survival program ‘I-LAND’ last year. Jay, a member of ENHYPEN also chose V as his role model in an interview in the August issue of Elle Japan which he took the cover. Sunoo and Jake, who are in the same group with Jay, showed up on a radio show and expressed their fanboying for V.
Not only that, ‘Urban dictionary’, which deals with new English-speaking words, also added V to the list of definitions as “an IDOL of IDOLs”, with the explanation that rookie idols enjoy watching V’s fancams the most to learn facial and emotional expression.
