Fans were in for a surprise when they saw Kim Taehyung, also known as V, posting a welcome card from Celine on his Instagram story. The card said “Welcome to Cannes! We look forward to seeing you.” Many fans assumed that Taehyung was going to attend the Cannes Film Festival 2023, which is currently underway in France. However, Korean media has clarified that this is not the case.
According to reports, Taehyung is in France for a Celine event and not for the film festival. He is one of the global brand ambassadors for the French luxury label, along with BLACKPINK’s Lisa and actor Park Bo Gum. The trio will attend a private showing of Celine’s latest collection in Cannes, but they will not walk the red carpet or watch any films at the festival.
This news comes amid rumors that Taehyung is dating BLACKPINK’s Jennie, who is also in Cannes for her upcoming HBO series “The Idol”. The series, which also stars The Weeknd and Lily Rose-Depp, will be screened under the Out of Competition section at the festival. Fans have been speculating about Taehyung and Jennie’s relationship ever since some photos were leaked last year.
Taehyung has shared some photos of himself in Paris on his Instagram. He wore a leopard-print shirt and black pants in one photo, and a beige trench coat, a printed scarf, and light-blue jeans in another. He also posed with Peter Utz, Celine’s Head Director of Couture and Events, and photographer Hong Janghyun.
Taehyung‘s appearance in Cannes has generated a lot of buzz among his fans and the media. He is known for his impeccable fashion sense and charisma, as well as his musical talents.
Celine is one of the most popular brands among K-pop idols and celebrities. It is known for its minimalist and edgy designs that suit both men and women.
