An episode of Monuments: Beyond the Star, a series by BTS, features member V’s personal confession of a life-altering event that occurred during the pandemic. The South Korean boy band’s story is explored in episodes 7 and 8, with a particular emphasis on their difficulties with living alone following a period of room sharing.
‘Permission to Dance’ was written during the outbreak, and BTS performed their first gig at Los Angeles’s Allegiant Stadium in the opening segment of the episode. In their appreciation for the chance, the band members consider how the pandemic has affected their songwriting and live performances. Kim Taehyung, better known as V, opens out about the emotional whirlwind he experienced during this critical time.
We all should start focusing on our “Small but Definite Happiness”. It might look completely different from what you thought it would be, but as long as it brings you peace, embrace it! 💜💜#V #BTS_Monuments_BeyondTheStar pic.twitter.com/EBuyNXW7Oe

After their schedule in Los Angeles, the members of BTS returned to Seoul, South Korea, and had to deal with the difficulty of going from sharing a house for seven or eight years to living independently. Having Jungkook by his side brought comfort to Jimin, who was obviously distressed by the shift. V, on the other hand, had an extremely individual experience.
BTS V showcases his finely decorated home and admits that he played the role of interior designer on his own. “It was extremely vibrant while we were living together, but now that I’m alone, I don’t chat a lot.” He reveals that the dynamics have changed. Despite his initial boredom, V eventually came to love and even seek solace in his alone, as he describes in his account. He admits to devoting a great deal of time to music and video games, taking pleasure in the seemingly insignificant pursuits.
Taehyungie’s house tour evokes mixed emotions. It brings joy as we glimpse into the place he calls home, but there’s also a touch of sadness, knowing that he felt lonely and bored at times – a normal sentiment when you’re accustomed to being surrounded by many people most of the… pic.twitter.com/1ojenPeuAP

I was too active, playful, and too much of a jokester when I was young, but after realizing the beauty and fun of peace, I have come to really appreciate it, V says, reflecting on his own development. As someone who used to be quite outgoing, he stresses that he now finds contentment in quiet, calling it a simple but definitive happiness.
V contemplates his present level of happiness as he rests down on his sofa in a moving scenario. I’m relieved I’m not obligated to speak. For the time being, I’d say that being alone is perfect for me. According to him, it gives the impression that he is genuinely relaxing.
