However, V tried to get closer to people despite being a self-identified person. He explained in an interview with Korea Fashion. The interviewer asked him about his reputation as one who befriends others frequently.

You often make contact with other artists. This is a bit surprising, as you’d expect a popular celebrity like you not to feel the need to reach out to others outside of your entourage. Do these new meetings give you energy? What do such meetings mean to you?

V revealed that a human bond is essential to him. So, be they fellow artists or even a journalist, they like to interact with them.

I value human connection. I am a human person and I really enjoy working with everyone I come into contact with professionally, including artists, directors, writers and journalists like you.

However, it was not always so easy for him. V personally shared how it was booked in the past as it was used by others.

In the past, I was more reserved because I was hurt by people who treated me simply as a valuable resource to know and not as a friend.

Despite being hurt by people, V still enjoys building relationships with others. He believes that the people around him helped him get through it.

But I still like people. It is thanks to the wonderful people in my life that I am who I am.

V is such a loving and friendly person; he deserves to be surrounded only by people who truly respect him for who he really is!
