Since she created her Instagram account, Taehyung only followed seven people on her profile. However, last Saturday, January 14, the BTS member surprised fans when he raised that number to eight following T.O.P, a member of BIGBANG.
Although several users reacted with excitement at the interaction between the idols of both major boybands in the K-Pop industry, other fans surprised with criticism of V for being linked with a “controversial” figure.
