BTS member Kim Taehyung, also known as V, has been making headlines for his stunning appearance on the April 2023 issue of ELLE Korea. The magazine featured him as the cover star in collaboration with the luxury brand CELINE.
The photoshoot showcased V’s captivating gaze, playful charisma, and impeccable fashion sense. He wore outfits from CELINE’s Spring 2023 Menswear collection, designed by Hedi Slimane. The magazine also included an interview with V, where he talked about his experience in Seo-jin’s variety show, his love for art and music, and his gratitude for his fans.
V’s ELLE Korea covers were met with overwhelming response from fans and media outlets. The magazine achieved an ‘all-kill’ in sales ranking by topping the best-seller lists at nine major bookstores in South Korea and Japan within 24 hours of the cover reveal. The magazine also ranked as the No. 1 bestseller on the popular global store Ktown4u, where V currently holds the record for the most magazine sold of all time with his VOGUE Korea covers.
To celebrate this incredible achievement, ELLE Korea has erected a massive LED billboard featuring V’s photos from the magazine on the JTBC building in Seoul. The billboard is as big as a 12-story building, making it a prominent and eye-catching feature of the city’s skyline.
Fans of Taehyung and BTS have been quick to share their excitement about the billboard on social media, with many expressing their admiration for the magazine and their support for V. It’s clear that V’s impact on the world of fashion and entertainment is only growing, and fans can’t wait to see what he’ll do next.
