Is V aka Kim Tae-hyung Gay?
No, he is not gay. As he hasn’t talked about his sexuality openly it is safe to assume that he is straight.
So far, Taehyung has neither denied nor acknowledged the rumors. Even though he has millions of fans, they haven’t pestered him to express his sexual orientation.
The Korean singer has faced multiple homosexual allegations, although he hasn’t been involved with other men, or at least that we know of.
Besides, we are in the 21st century so V would have come out of the closet if he wanted to. But he has not which indicates he is most likely not a part of the LGBTQ community.
Also, the idol shouldn’t feel obligated to come out or state his sexuality just because people are eager to know, he should do it when he’s ready.
Why do people think he is gay?
Taehyung is close with his bandmates, which seems to be one of the reasons people perceive him as a non-straight man. However, the boys have been together for over 10 years due to their career and it is natural to be close.
Their friendliness and the ability to comfort one another when they are anxious on stage or in interviews made people assume V is into men. But that is not true, he and his teammates are best friends who care for each other and have been cooperating for a long period.
So, it isn’t odd when we see them casually making physical contact such as hugging, patting, or smiling at one another.
Meanwhile, his close friend and band mate Jimin is also reported to be gay.
Fans thought V might have difficulty expressing himself
Back in 2015 during a Variety show, he was wearing heels and dancing, which was impressive. Nevertheless, some people started doubting if he might be more than what he expresses himself to be.
Additionally, K-pop idols use makeup and doll themselves up as a part of their job; to look in front of the camera. This has triggered some people to put homosexual allegations on the artist, as makeup is stereotyped for women only.
Nevertheless, this type of mindset needs to be changed because, in today’s world, every gender can wear makeup as they wish.
Also, envious viewers seem to create baseless rumors and spread them to ruin the singer’s reputation, which is usually ignored by people.
Taehyung supports the LGBTQ community.
The famous personality has fans identifying with different sexualities from all around the world. During their world tours, he is often holding the pride flag and acknowledging it.

In addition to that, his first solo song ‘Stigma’ written by him, is perceived as a queer song by the LGBT community. Following that, in 2018 in one of his live events, he said he liked the movie ‘Call Me By Your Name’ which is a homosexual film.
Also, in 2018, BTS gave a speech at the UN where they said that people should not be ashamed of who they are or where they come from.
No matter who you are, where you’re from, your skin colour, gender identity: speak yourself
Additionally, he openly shows his support for the queer community by listening to music by gay artists and wearing clothes related to pride.
Along with that, he is friends with famous queer models and musicians.
Is Taehyung in a Relationship?
There is no official confirmation on whether the musician is dating anybody, so we can’t conclude whether he is single. V has been keeping his dating life away from the public due to his obsessive fans and how they may react.
Therefore, it isn’t strange for him to be secretive about his love life right now.
Still, there are other assumptions that he was secretly in a relationship with other women previously and he is dating Jennie of Blackpink.
Is V dating Jennie or are they just rumors?
Jennie and Taehyung’s private pictures were leaked by anonymous Twitter users which sparked a lot of curiosity among the fans.
At first, some thought that they were just fake edits made up by fans who ship the two singers while some thought they might be together for real.
Despite the different views, on May 17, 2023, the idols were spotted taking a walk while holding hands in Paris. Some fans were heartbroken with the news broke out and some were happy for the alleged lovers.
Meanwhile, both of their agencies neither claimed nor opposed the rumors which have left the questions unanswered.
