When BTS held their 5th MUSTER fan meeting in Seoul, V opened up about something memorable that happened when he initially went to sign his contract with Big Hit Entertainment.
According to V, since he’s originally from Gyeongsang Province, he traveled all the way to Seoul with his father as soon as he passed his audition in order to sign his contract with the agency.
When he arrived at Express Bus Terminal Station in Seoul, he and his father got into a taxi to head over to Big Hit Entertainment which was located in Gangnam.
That was the first time V ever got into a taxi in Seoul, and despite the distance being short, the taxi driver charged him 32,800 KRW ($28.18 USD) for the ride. For reference, a taxi ride from Express Bus Terminal to Big Hit Entertainment’s old building should only cost around 10,000 KRW ($8.59 USD).
Both V and his father were so shocked that they even talked about it afterward over a meal where his father asked, “Do you remember that?” to which V replied, “That wasn’t right… But I’m sure he had his reasons.” When his fellow members heard the story, they expressed, “That’s not right. You were going from Gangnam to Gangnam.“
