The Wholesome Story Of BTS V’s First Time On An Airplane, Eight Years Ago

He’s grown so much since then.

Now that BTS are frequently traveling around the globe for world tours and international events, it might be hard to think about a time when they hadn’t even been on a plane. But almost eight years ago, that was the case for V!

Before he was heralded as the king of airport fashion, V had actually never been on an airplane until he was a teenager and just debuted in BTS. His first flight ever was on October 23, 2013, when the group was headed to Japan!

He looked so cute as he looked around the airport and held all his documents in hand so that he could enter smoothly.

But one fansite caught these pictures of V being adorably baffled by something! Totally relatable for anyone who remembers their first airport experience.

V shared some more information about the day of his first flight about a month after it happened! He posted a picture of himself from that day on Twitter and revealed just how excited he was.

Reminds me of the first time I ever went on an airplane. Back then, I was so fascinated that I ended up with 400+ airplane pictures on my phone…

Comparing V’s first flight in 2013 to his first flight with a diplomatic passport in 2021 had fans feeling emotional! Now instead of him snapping hundreds of pictures, there are dozens of fans and paparazzi taking pictures of him.
