Is BTS‘s V the next member to join TikTok?
In July, a TikTok account pretended to be BTS’s Jungkook and was even briefly verified, tricking some ARMYs. Yet, the next month, Jungkook accidentally revealed his real TikTok account.

Now, an account has resurfaced that appears to be connected to V.
Recently, a video of V listening to music on an airplane has gone viral on the video-sharing app TikTok, with 22.8M views at the time of writing. The account attached to it is V (@v4davictory).
ARMYs were shocked to seemingly discover that another BTS member had joined TikTok without their knowledge. It was unexpected.
However, upon looking at the account, you’ll see some contradictions. While one video’s caption speaks in first person as V…
A big thank you to my wonderful band for another fun session 🎹🎹🎼🎤
…other videos do not. There’s also an unusual amount of CapCut edits that do not look like something V would have posted himself.
The account already has 2.7M followers, but it is following only three, none of which are BTS or Jungkook’s accounts.
The strangest thing is that though the account is verified, the bio does clarify it is not V.
While it’s certainly not V, at least the account promotes his debut solo album Layover!
