For the past 10 years, ARMY have grown up with the BTS members and watched them become the mature young men they are today. Throughout this time, everyone has grown up and become the best versions of themselves. Some of the members argue that V has had the most positive changes over the years. Check out some of the ways he’s matured below!
1. He has become more introverted.
V’s MBTI personality type has changed from ENFP to INFP. As he’s become more reserved as he’s aged, his personality change reflects his growth.
2. He went from “a free spirit” to a mature adult.
Jin revealed that V used to be the mischievous type who would continue to do things after being told not to do them. With time, he soon grew up and became “easier” to deal with.
3. His skill level has increased.
V shared that during BTS’s early days, he thought his dancing skills were “lacking.” However, since then, he’s practiced extremely hard throughout the years and thinks he’s “better than he used to be.”
4. He has become more self-aware.
In 2019, V shared that he didn’t know the ways he had changed since his debut. He also struggled with his identity, which he discussed in “Singularity.”
However, in his “Proof of Inspiration” video, he has come to terms with both of his identities and allowed them to coexist. One side of himself is an idol who enjoys himself with his fans, while the other side is a normal guy who lives an ordinary life.
Now I’m able to accept both sides of myself, but also keep them separate.
5. He knows how to deal with his problems in a healthy way.
V has grown to understand the best way for him to overcome his struggles is to face them head-on. He also uses music as his creative outlet.
When something eats away at me, I focus on it and try to conquer it. For example, if I’m overwhelmed by some emotion, I write a song about it. When the song is done, whether it’s a good song or not, the sense of achievement helps get rid of any pain or suffering I’m going through.
6. What makes him happy has changed.
Growing up made him realize what truly matters in life: Being together with the people he loves.
