He was featured on the ‘Hwarang’ TV series soundtrack. Taehyung began as The Poet Warrior Youth in 2016 and released his first independent single, ‘Scenery,’ written by himself, in 2019. Taehyung was born Kim Tae-hyung in Daegu’s Seo District on December 30, 1995, and grew up in Geochang County.

He is the eldest of three children and has two younger brothers and sisters. Ever since he was in elementary school, Taehyung wanted to become a professional singer. At the beginning of his middle school with his father’s encouragement, he began learning saxophone to pursue his music career. Taehyung passed an audition in Daegu and eventually became a Big Hit Entertainment trainee.

After graduating from Korea Arts High School in 2014, Taehyung entered Global Cyber ​​University, majoring in broadcasting and entertainment, and plans to graduate in August 2020. He entered Hanyang Cyber ​​University in 2021 and got a master’s degree in business administration with focus in advertising and media.

He was a “secret member” of BTS before making his debut. Because his agency wanted to surprise them, fans were ignorant of his presence. He claimed the concept caused him feel uneasy and lonely, and he assumed it was because he might be left out of the lineup. On June 13, 2013, he made his debut as a member of BTS on Mnet’s M Countdown with the track “No More Dream” off his debut single 2 Cool 4 Skool.

Taehyung’s second solo single, “Singularity,” was released as a promo for BTS’s then-released third studio album, “Love Yourself.” The song premiered on BBC Radio in the United Kingdom on October 25. A month after its release, The Guardian added “Singularity” to its “Top 50 Songs of the Month for June 2018” playlist, and Forbes featured it on its “Top 50 BTS Songs” critics list in 2018.

Critics praised The Singularity, and it was named to several year-end critic lists. The song was ranked 20th on The New York Times list of “The 65 Best Songs of 2018,” alongside “Fake Love.” The song was ranked fourth among the “best and most replayable songs of 2018” by Los Angeles Times writer Mikael Wood.

On October 24, Taehyung became one of the youngest recipients of the fifth-class Hwagwan Order of Cultural Merit medal, bestowed by the President of South Korea on him and the other members of BTS in recognition of their contributions to the propagation of culture.

Taehyung, along with the other members of BTS, was appointed Special Presidential Envoy for Future Generations and Culture by South Korean President Moon Jae-in in July 2021 to help “lead the global agenda for future generations” and “expand South Korea’s diplomatic efforts and global standing” in the international community.

Taehyung made his acting debut under his real name in the KBS2 period drama Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth in 2016. He also co-wrote the duet song “It’s Definitely You” with bandmate Jin for the show’s soundtrack. On June 8, 2017, Taehyung released the song “4 O’Clock,” which he co-produced with bandmate RM, to commemorate BTS’s fourth anniversary.

Taehyung possesses a baritone singing voice that has received a generally positive critical reception, with particular praise for his vocal range and “husky” tone. He gained wider vocal recognition for his performance of his solo song “Stigma”, and was praised for his falsettos that showed off his vocal range and unique musicality.

As a performer, Taehyung is known for his “duality”, his ability to evoke different emotions on stage. In October 2018, during the Love Yourself World Tour concert in Paris, Taehyung had difficulty singing due to an illness and had to abstain from some of his parts during the concert. In October 2021 it was announced V would abstain from choreography during their Permission to Dance on Stage concerts due to a calf injury and would remain seated while singing.
