BTS V (Taehyung) Pre–debut
Although V was born in Daegu, he moved to Geochang where he grew up living with the rest of his family. He later on moved to Seoul with the aim of pursuing a career in the music scene.
He has once stated that although his parents were initially not supportive of him joining the music industry, they later changed and thought it was a great idea if he gave it a shot. V was encouraged by his father to have knowledge of playing at least one musical instrument.
He says that his father advised him that it was important for a singer to have skill with at least an instrument and it is then that he decided to try out a saxophone. He practiced playing the instrument over a period of 3 years beginning from the time he was in 7th grade.
BTS V further admits that there was a point in time in which he fell so in love with playing saxophone and wanted to be a saxophone player more than he wanted to be a singer.
However, he stopped playing the instrument in his fourth year and hasn’t improved his playing skills since then. It is then that his dream of becoming a singer became more eminent.
Before officially becoming a member of the renowned boy band BTS, V had already made a name for himself in showbiz. He pretty well-known on the internet and went by the name Ulzzang which means someone with a pretty face. Ulzzangs are basically personalities that are quite famous online for having exceptionally good looks.
Anybody with good looks can be an Ulzzang as it does not require one to be a professional model or have any career along that line. There are however certain contradictions about V being an Ulzzang before BTS.
Some sources indicate that he became an Ulzzang only after Big Hit Entertainment revealed his face on the internet as the last member of the group. On the other hand, there are sources that claim that he was an Ulzzang before joining BTS.
V’s audition for BTS has often been attributed to pure coincidence. It is said that the only reason he was at the venue where Big Hit Entertainment was hosting the auditions in search of a trainee was because he had accompanied his friend who wanted to audition. A member of Big Hit spotted him and encouraged him to give the auditions a shot.
In an interview, Taehyung said that he was so unprepared for the audition that he had to call his parents and ask for permission to do it. Although he had dreamt of becoming a performer after realizing in school that he liked the stage, he did not take his instincts seriously and wasn’t even thinking about auditioning for a spot on BTS.
It can therefore be said that his was a case of being at the right place at the right time with the right skills and the right looks.
Prior to moving to Korea Art School, Taehyung attended the Daegu First School. He graduated from the former in the year 2014 alongside fellow group member, Jimin. He then proceeded to Global Cyber University. He is considered a brilliant singer by fellow group members.
The first time that he was announced to be a member of BTS was when a teaser image of him was released by Big Hit Entertainment. He was kept a secret from the general public while the other BTS members were exhibited on Facebook, Twitter and Fancafe.
His announcement increased the number of BTS group members to 7 from 6. He trained for 3 years under Big Hit and was scouted for his gorgeous looks.
