V has an interesting story of how he was recruited by the Big Hit Entertainment. Back in 2011, Tae accompanied his friend to the record company. He originally had no intention to audition as a trainee and was only there to support his fellow.

However, a Big Hit executive saw potential in him, and urged him to try out. Taehyung, who was 15 years old at that time, had no idea how the audition was about to change his whole life. He became the only person from his district who passed as a trainee.

He impressed everyone with his multiple talents.V revealed in an interview:

‘They asked me if I would like to try out so I said yes. I danced and they said do you have something else? I sang for them and they asked do you have anything else to show us? I beatboxed and they asked what else? I rapped and they said what else? I brought my saxophone and played it for them to which they responded do you have anything else to show us? It was then that I finally said no I don’t have anything else to show you.’

The 24-year-old was born to shine and stand out, and this is just the beginning of his fame. Taehyung has a long way to go, with his immense talent, killer looks and charming personality.
