V aka Kim Taehyung has recently surpassed 40 million followers on Instagram within just 135 days. Fans have also pointed out that this record makes him the fastest person ever to cross such a benchmark on the social media handle. This milestone achieved by the BTS member has left the fans celebrating all over the internet.

The new hashtag trend

Fans of V have also started trending #THV40MILLION on Twitter to shower their love and praises on the singer. They have also started sending congratulatory messages to him, and we may also expect a sweet response from Tae Bear soon!

The previous record

What’s interesting to note is that this is not the first time that V has broken a record on social media. Earlier, he had broken the record of being the fastest person to cross the benchmark of 30 million followers on Instagram. Not only that, but when Kim Taehyung debuted on the platform, he became the fastest person ever to cross a million followers in just 43 minutes, that is a record in itself. If that wasn’t enough, the BTS singer crossed 10 million followers within four hours on the same day.

V’s Grammys stint

Kim Taehyung is quite the charmer, and we got proof of the same from his recent stint at the 2022 Grammy Awards. The wonderful guy had a flirtatious moment with the singer Olivia Rodrigo that caught the attention of millions of audiences around the world. It all happened when BTS was performing on Butter at the mega event.

Permission to Dance tour

V was also a part of the Permission to Dance: On Stage tour along with other members of the BTS. They had concerts for four days in Las Vegas and entertained the audience like no other. Not only that, but the group also teased their comeback with WE ARE BULLETPROOF, which is scheduled to release on June 10 this year. However, not much has been revealed about it other than the teaser that was released during the concert.
