V has been actively interacting with his fans through Instagram. Recently, he drew much attention for sharing his daily life moments captured in Las Vegas.

Netizens left comments on V setting a new Instagram record, “Congratulations V”, “He is so cool”, “As expected of superstar Kim Taehyung”, and “V is the record maker,” etc.
