BTS’ V sends fans frenzy with latest update from the military

On April 12, BTS member V aka Kim Taehyung delighted fans with a series of photos showcasing his impressive physique, honed through rigorous training as an elite Special Forces soldier in the Military Police division.

Sporting a black shirt adorned with the Special Duty Team (SDT) logo, Taehyung exuded strength and determination in the snapshots, which also captured him in casual settings at the gym and outdoors.

In a particularly striking image, Taehyung bared his back, revealing scars earned from intense military training. Captioned "Wounds of glory," the photo underscored his pride in the challenges he's faced as an SDT soldier.

A former military expert noted that the scars likely resulted from carrying heavy gear and enduring grueling activities like climbing and crawling.



Alongside the photos, Taehyung shared updates on his recent activities, including a vacation to celebrate Na PD's birthday and quality time with friends. Despite his dedication to fitness, now weighing 75kg, Taehyung remains motivated by his unit's impressive physique, pledging to continue pushing himself to new heights.
