V loves Jazz 

While V’s vocals have been wowing fans for years, he is also interested in other types of musical performance. He enjoys playing the trumpet in particular, and on BTS In the SOOP 2, he showed fans a glimpse of his trumpet practice. V enjoys jazz music and frequently recommends jazz songs to ARMY on Twitter and Weverse. Taehyung took to social media on November 6, KST, to express his profound affection for classic jazz music and some of its iconic singers and musicians. Taehyung also suggested some of his personal favorites to the audience. It’s not the first time Taehyung has expressed his love for the genre, and fans commented on his most recent posts, All Kpop posted. 

BTS V gave ARMYs a glimpse of him playing his trumpet in an episode of “BTS In the SOOP 2.” As a jazz and trumpet fan, it’s no surprise that BTS V enjoys listening to jazz music.
