2. Giving Relationship Advice to ARMY
He is not only making hearts flutter but also solving matters of the heart. Kim Taehyung, who connects with his fans time and again on Weverse turned into a friend-in-need for a distressed ARMY contemplating breaking up with her boyfriend. As translated by BTS fan account @btstranslation7, she asked, "I feel like my bf doesn't really like me.. should we break up? I like him so much, I think about him all day." This is what V responded, "If you still have feelings for him, isn't it worth trying till the end? Think about how you feel," he said, before drawing a parallel with food, "I'm done eating, so I don't have lingering regrets for my food." Don't we love people who use food to explain complex issues? Just nth reason to love V!
