Earlier this month, there were media reports that Kim Taehyung, aka V of BTS, will appear in the upcoming reality show "Seojin's," which was filmed in Mexico in secrecy.
Taehyung joins his friends Choi Woo Shik and Park Seo Joon, and the show will see the stars operate a Korean restaurant overseas.
"Seojin's" is a new franchise restaurant program by PD Na Young Seok, known as the "Midas' of Korea’s entertainment world," who directed the variety shows "Youn’s Kitchen" and "Youn’s Stay."
Some fans spotted Taehyung and his friends while they were filming in Mexico. Those who were lucky enough to share the same hotel with him and encounter him up close while they were filming in Bacalar, Quintana Roo, Mexico, shared their experiences.
- Anecdote 1:
"Now that it's official and that it's been published that Tae was in my city, I want to tell you all a part that was very random when we saw Tae while he was filming. Honestly, meeting him and for him to say "Hi" to us from afar was the most amazing thing."
"During the moment we saw Tae filming, the little cart that sells food passed by (in Bacalar, there's a car with a speaker that announces the food), and Tae saw the cart that sells seafood, and the vendor asked him, "Would you like some fish?"
"When the car passed, Tae announced "We sell warm corn, 3 corns for 15 pesos, we sell Tamales and Esquites." Hahaha, it was the best. You could see Tae's face experiencing the third world. It was the most random thing."
- Anecdote 2:
“My one-year-old cousin was lucky to be touched by Tae. She had just started to learn how to walk but when she suddenly fell she started to cry so Taehyung patted her little head and told her 'BABY NO CRYING' 😭😭😭.”
- Anecdote 3:
“Taehyung is the most humble Idol I have ever met. We couldn’t say "Hi" to him, still he greeted all of us. I literally saw him mop up the water from the rain and he looked so beautiful. I love him.”
- Anecdote 4:
"Taehyung is one of the most beautiful idols I've ever met. He was always worrying about ARMYs and even though they had forbidden him to say "Hi," he would always say "Hi" to us. He was always dancing during the recording. I loved it! The energy he gives off is beautiful and he was so charismatic too.”
“Someone from staff put "Run BTS" on a speaker while recording them to make a TikTok video I guess, because it was part of the trend so I hope they upload it so I don't look like a clown.”
“During the recording, after a while the staff came with plates of food and told us that they were very grateful to us for always having respected their work and that the artists had sent the food as a token of their gratitude and with lots of love and appreciation.”
“I asked the female staff who had sent the food and she told me the she can’t say but that we will find out once we see the show.”
The different stories shared raised fans' interest in the show.
The anecdotes revealed Taehyung's true character behind the cameras, which has remained consistent throughout the years. Taehyung's fondness for kids is widely known, and his gentleness with them comes as no surprise. He remains a humble idol who values relationships with people, in and out of the workplace.
"Seojin's" is expected to start airing in early 2023.
