BTS V is revealed to be the most in-demand actor in South Korea right now!
BTS V Continues to Receive Love Calls from Production Companies
BTS V first made his debut as an actor in 2016, appearing in the KBS drama "Hwarang" and playing one of the supporting characters, Hansung.
Playing the role of Hansung, V amazed many of the viewers and fans for his acting, praising him for portraying and embodying the character well. V's success in "Hwarang" gave fans and companies a glimpse of his excellent acting potential.
Due to V's successful acting debut, many have started looking forward to more of his acting projects. However, after "Hwarang," he has not been in any dramas or films since then. With BTS emerging as one of the leading K-Pop groups globally, the chances of seeing V as an actor is slowly dwindling.
With BTS's popularity globally and V's potential as an actor, numerous production companies and producers have begun making love calls to the idol-actor.
In addition, it is known that the BTS member has an estimated 200 million KRW (178,000 USD) per episode for his performance fee. Considering that of actor Kim Soo Hyun, who is one of the highest-paid Hallyu actors and debuted in 2007 and has been in the entertainment industry for 15 years with a performance fee of more than 500 million KRW (442,000 USD) per episode, the industry has high expectations for V in his acting career.
Unfortunately, due to current policies and rules under Big Hit, BTS and V's agency, that disallows any member from pursuing individual activities, for the time being, it is unlikely that we will see V as an actor again soon.However, fans are still eager and passionately discussing what roles they would like to see V take in the future.
