V shared much of his Parisian adventures with fans through social media and seemed to be living his best life.

From sipping wine while in CELINE’s flagship boutique on Avenue Montaigne to taking in the city from private rooftops to attending the NAHMIAS Aftershow at Boum Boum Club in Paris, fancy dinners in atmospheric Parisian restaurants, and even a pick-up basketball game; V really made the most of his short trip.

While V had behind-the-scenes fun during the trip, he also became the main event with actor Park Bo Gum and BLACKPINK’s Lisa when they arrived at the CELINE Paris Fashion Week show in 2022. The three celebrities brought the surrounding area to a standstill so fans could take in every iconic moment with the famous trio.

In order to keep the top celebrities safe, they were surrounded by bodyguards during their trip, and BTS’s V reportedly befriended his bodyguard while in Paris.

Recently, an ARMY waiting to see BTS’s Jimin and J-Hope during their appearance at the Dior Fall 2023 Menswear Fashion Show and ran into the lucky bodyguard. The fan asked him about his previous experience working with V, and he only had great things to say.

The ARMY shared that they asked a random gentleman where the best spot was to see Jimin at the Dior event. That person ended up being V’s bodyguard from his Paris trip last summer, which the bodyguard only revealed as he and the ARMY were discussing Jimin’s appearance at the Dior show.

Without revealing V’s personal information, the bodyguard briefly stated that V was very kind to him and laid-back, and the bodyguard even had three pictures taken with V and Park Bo Gum.

As the bodyguard’s kind words about BTS’s V circulated, ARMYs pieced together moments from V’s trip to Paris that became even more endearing.

From the pictures shared on V’s Instagram story in June, fans spotted the bodyguard among the players in the pick-up basketball game.

The two widely smiled as they enjoyed a casual afternoon in Paris.

Fans also pointed out another sweet moment as V parted ways with the security team ahead of his private flight home to Korea.

Fan-taken videos showed BLACKPINK’s Lisa waving goodbye to fans through the airport doors; shortly after, BTS’s V and Park Bo Gum also entered the lobby and turned around when they saw a familiar face.

It was the bodyguard, who Park Bo Gum and V warmly hugged before they went to their plane.

Fans loved to hear that the bodyguard had only fond memories of his time working with BTS’s V, and were happy to see V was able to enjoy his trip to Paris with a friendly companion!
