What All V Has Posted on Instagram So Far? - A Quick Recap
V's first post on Instagram was as unique as he happens to be. It was a dino skeleton, which he captioned as 'baby dinosaur dooly.' He then posted a bunch of his pics flaunting his love for flowers. Indeed a 'Flower Boy.' Kim Taehyung's third post should get Taekook (shippers of V and Jungkook) fans excited as he posted a pic focussing on him and BTS' Golden Maknae followed by a series of mirror selfies. V also posted IG story, his selfie with shaving cream formed like a mustache on his face. But it was the message to his fans that got everyone in awe mode. V said - 'Please take care of me.'
