Powered by Audioscrobbler™Kim Tae-hyung (Korean: 김태형; born December 30, 1995), also known by his stage name V, is a South Korean singer, songwriter, record producer, and actor. He is a vocalist of the South Korean boy group BTS.

On June 13, 2013, he made his debut as a member of BTS on Mnet's M Countdown with the track "No More Dream" from their debut single album, 2 Cool 4 Skool. He was first credited for music composition in The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Part 1 when he co-wrote and co-produced the song "Hold Me Tight". He also contributed to writing lyrics for the song "Fun Boyz", co-composed by bandmate Suga. For the song "Run", V's melody was used with Jungkook's original lyrics for the next album The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Part 2. Furthermore, he wrote the lyrics for a solo song called "Stigma" from the album Wings. V has also released, unofficially, a cover of "Hug Me" with bandmate J-Hope as well as a cover of "Someone Like You" by Adele.

In May 2018, his second solo song, "Singularity" was released as the trailer for BTS' then upcoming third LP, Love Yourself: Tear. The track made its UK radio debut on BBC radio on October 25. A month after its release, The Guardian added "Singularity" to its "Top 50 songs for the month of June 2018" playlist and Billboard included it in their Critics' list of the "Top 50 BTS songs" at number 28. Overall, "Singularity" was generally well received by critics and as a result was mentioned on several year end Critics' Choice lists. The New York Times ranked it twentieth on its list of "The 65 Best Songs of 2018" alongside "Fake Love", LA Times Pop Music Critic Mikael Wood named it the fourth "best and most replay worthy song of 2018", and Guardian Music Critic Laura Snapes included it as one of her favourite tracks in their “Best Music of 2018: Albums and Tracks" list.

On October 24, V became one of the youngest recipients of the prestigious fifth-class Hwagwan Order of Cultural Merit medal, awarded to him by the President of South Korea along with the other members of BTS for their role in the spread of Korean culture.

V, together with bandmate J-Hope, collaborated with Swedish singer Zara Larsson on a song called A Brand New Day for the soundtrack album of their mobile game BTS World.[19] It was released on June 14, 2019 and debuted at number 1 on World Digital Song Sales Chart.

2016–present: Solo activities
In 2016, V made his acting debut with a supporting role in KBS2's historical drama Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth under his real name. He also collaborated with bandmate Jin for the Hwarang soundtrack entitled "It's Definitely You". On June 8, 2017, he released "4 O'Clock", a song he co-produced with bandmate RM, to celebrate BTS’ fourth anniversary.

V released his first full solo track outside of BTS, "Scenery", on January 30, 2019 through BTS' SoundCloud page. The ballad song was written and composed by V (who also photographed the cover artwork), produced by Big Hit Entertainment producer Docskim, and featured additional contributions from Big Hit producers Pdogg and Hiss Noise. It broke SoundCloud records for reaching 100 million streams from 20 million in over fourteen days, the shortest time for the platform. Over the course of the two weeks following its release, "Scenery" broke the daily streaming record nine times. The song received generally favorable reviews following its release, with particular praise directed to the nostalgic and sentimental qualities of the lyrics, which were equated to a diary entry. Following this, he released his second solo song and first English song, "Winter Bear" through soundcloud and self-directed music video through BTS' youtube channel on August 9. He co-produced it together with bandmate RM and Big Hit Entertainment producers Hiss Noise and ADORA. He also photographed the cover artwork using his pseudonym, "Vante".
