How BTS Taehyung’s ELLE Korea April Issue Broke Records and Crashed Websites

BTS member Kim Taehyung, also known as V, has once again proven his immense popularity and influence as a global fashion icon. His stunning photoshoot for ELLE Korea’s April issue has achieved an ‘all-kill’ in sales ranking and caused the website of luxury brand CELINE to crash.

V – The Cover Star

ELLE Korea recently unveiled Taehyung as the cover star for their April issue by releasing three breathtaking covers that showcased his captivating gaze and playful charisma. The magazine praised him as the ‘CELINE Boy’ who perfectly embodies the brand’s image of modernity and elegance.

The covers were highly anticipated by fans, who had already pre-ordered the magazine with just his blind covers. Taehyung displayed his unrivaled brand power by topping best-seller rankings at major Japanese bookstores with just his blind covers. ELLE Korea’s decision to release pre-order links with just his blind covers proved their trust in his selling power.

The All-Kill

24 hours after Taehyung’s ELLE Korea covers were revealed, he achieved an ‘all-kill’ in sales ranking by topping the best-seller lists at nine major bookstores. In South Korea, Taehyung took over the top three bestseller spots on the country’s three largest bookstores: Aladin, Yes24, and Kyobo book. In Japan, Taehyung topped the largest bookstores including Rakuten, Amazon Japan, and Qoo10. Taehyung’s magazine also ranked as the No. 1 bestseller on the popular global store Ktown4u, where he currently holds the record for the most magazine sold of all time with his VOGUE Korea covers.

This marks Taehyung’s second all-kill in sales ranking after his six VOGUE Korea covers for the October 2022 issue became bestsellers for weeks. His incredible selling power has earned him the nickname ‘King of Magazines’ among fans and media outlets.

The Website Crash

Taehyung’s ELLE Korea photoshoot was done in collaboration with CELINE Spring 2023 Menswear collection. He looked stunning in various outfits that highlighted his fashion sense and charisma. His photos caused such a frenzy among fans that they flooded the CELINE website to buy the clothes he was seen wearing. As a result, the website crashed due to high traffic within minutes of his cover reveal.

Taehyung has been promoting CELINE for quite a while now. He has been seen wearing their products for a long time and often creates fashion trends with his choices. He is also close friends with CELINE’s creative director Hedi Slimane, who personally designs clothes for him.

The Interview

In addition to his gorgeous photoshoot, Taehyung also gave an interview to ELLE Korea where he talked about various topics. He candidly spoke about his experience in appearing on Jinny’s Kitchen alongside Park Seo Joon and Choi Woo Shik. He said that watching the show and being on it were completely different matters but he decided to give it a try because of his good friends who told him that it was a fun experience.

He also revealed that he learned that his hands are fast when doing dishes even though he may talk slow and act slow. He said that he enjoyed cooking with Park Seo Joon and Choi Woo Shik because they have similar tastes in food.

When asked about his potential solo music projects, Taehyung said that he wants to make music that can comfort people and make them happy.

Taehyung‘s ELLE Korea April issue is currently available for pre-order on various stores worldwide. More photoshoots, interviews, and YouTube videos will soon be released by ELLE Korea.
