One of the covers particularly caught the attention of fans as it truly showcased V’s transformation over the years. On the cover, V was wearing a diamonte and tasseled denim jacket over a white t-shirt. With his hair floppy, the main point of the photo was the cuts and bruises to fit a “Hollywood Movie” vibe.

The reason it stood out for ARMYs was that the look was very similar to what 21-year-old V wore for the Japanese version of the “Blood, Sweat & Tears” music video. Back when the video was filmed, V also wore a denim jacket over a white t-shirt with similar bruises to portray the message of the video.

V has grown rapidly over the years, and the comparison between the two photos perfectly shows that.
