BTS's V, also known as Taehyung, is expressing his gratitude to his staff ahead of his military enlistment. As he prepares to enter the Nonsan Army Training Center in Chungcheongnam-do, V took to his Instagram story to share images of the heartfelt farewell messages he received from his staff. The messages were written on rolling paper, a traditional Korean form of communication, and conveyed the staff's love and support for V as he embarks on this new chapter in his life.
In addition to the touching messages, V's staff surprised him with a cake inscribed with the message "The cake is of a bear dressed as a member of the Republic of Korea's Special Duty Team," which is the division V will be enlisting in. The cake symbolizes their support and well wishes for his military service.
V's enlistment date is set for December 11, and he will serve for a total of 18 months, with his discharge date scheduled for June 10, 2025. As V prepares to fulfill his military duties, fans are showing their love and support for him, expressing how much they will miss him during his absence.
But V's gratitude extends beyond just his staff. It was recently revealed that V and actor Park Seo Joon are close friends, with an unexpected anecdote shedding light on the extent of their friendship. Park Seo Joon shared that he had stayed at V's house for about two months when he had remodeling work done on his own place.
Park Seo Joon had initially planned to be out of the country for a project while the renovations took place, but when his work ended sooner than expected, he found himself without a place to stay. V, who lives just five minutes away, graciously offered his extra room to Park Seo Joon, saving him the trouble of finding alternative accommodations.
The bond between V and Park Seo Joon goes beyond just being neighbors. Their friendship is so strong that their parents have also become good friends, highlighting the deep connection they share. This friendship, along with V's close relationship with his other co-star Park Hyung Sik, has blossomed since they worked together on the 2016 K-Drama "Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth."
The camaraderie and support they have for each other is evident as they celebrate V's early birthday and spend quality time together before his enlistment.
In another sports adventure, V, Park Seo Joon, Park Hyung Sik, and Choi Woo Shik enjoyed a golf date. The Wooga squad, as they are affectionately called, formed during their time on "Hwarang" and has since become a tight-knit group. V often shares glimpses of their bromance on his Instagram stories, and their recent golf outing was no exception.
As V prepares to say goodbye to his fans and enter the military, his friends and staff have been showing their love and support for him. Producer Na Yeong Seok planned a special event for V, inviting Park Seo Joon to cook a birthday meal for him before his enlistment. The surprise celebration touched V's heart, and he expressed his gratitude for their kindness.
V's military enlistment marks a new chapter in his life, and his friends and fans will be eagerly awaiting his return. His close friendships and the support he receives from his staff demonstrate the strong bonds he has formed throughout his career. As V embarks on this new journey, he carries with him the love and well wishes of those around him.
