After appearing on a recent episode, ARMYs believe the hit show You Quiz on the Block actually used an edited photo of BTS V‘s dad.
On September 6, the full episode of You Quiz on the Block with V aired and it was full of some truly memorable moments.
During the show, V spoke about his dad and even shared how proud he is of the idol but also that he got emotional after seeing V on the show because he liked it so much.
When speaking about BTS’s V and his dad, they used a beautiful side-by-side shot of the two to showcase the familial bond.
Yet, while the two shots of V and his dad seemed sweet, one OP online quickly noticed that You Quiz on the Block actually used an old edit of BTS’s V and his dad on the show. In the tweet, the ARMY shared that the well-known edit that was often confusing for new fans had confused the show to the point they used it as a real photo.
think one of the biggest misinfo within armys is that this is taehyung’s dad. taehyung’s dad’s face was edited onto someone else’s body…and now this edit even made it onto the show 🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️ pic.twitter.com/mZNjRGN5TP

In particular, the OP and many fans pointed out that it seems like the photo used on the show is an edit that has been going around for some time. They pointed out that the face was definitely V’s dad and came from a passport photo the idol posted on Twitter back in 2019.

Looking at the edit, it seems the OG creator of the picture used the photo and imposed it onto a body.
When the user shared their findings on social media, other ARMYs couldn’t help but agree. In particular, many were shocked that such a prestigious show could share an edited photo and how surprised V’s family would be when seeing the show.

I was legit disappointed and surprised to see the pics alongside him. They should have researched and put the original one atleast. Just to make a comparison they chose on a fake and edited pic https://t.co/5Ts7G3I0ct

Wow… This is exactly why I need y'all to stop making jokes that create a train of misinformation or cause harm to any of the tannies. It all starts from this app and spreads to others and it becomes less of a joke and the truth even over the real truth. We need to be better https://t.co/uTbzub7kFM

While V hasn’t shared many photos of his dad, You Quiz on the Block could have asked the idol directly or at least confirmed it was real, as many pointed out that the photo looks very edited, especially when compared to the only photo V has posted.
