BTS member V, also known as Taehyung, has once again topped the Japanese K-pop fan popularity poll, securing the number one spot for 112 consecutive weeks. 
V emerged as the clear winner in the "K-pop Male Idol Ranking" conducted by the Japanese idol ranking site 'Nehan' from May 15th to May 21st, receiving a total of 23,660 votes. In Japan, V is affectionately called "Taetae" based on his nickname since his school days and his debut, and he enjoys unparalleled popularity in a place known as "Tae Tae Land."
Despite having appeared in only one episode of the 2016 KBS drama 'Hwarang,' V continues to be immensely popular as an actor even after seven years. He has achieved first place in daily, weekly, and monthly rankings on 'KPOP JUICE,' becoming the first K-pop idol to accumulate over 3 million votes and demonstrating his top-tier popularity.
In the K-pop handsome idol poll conducted by 'K-board,' a platform that provides K-culture information, V garnered 2,522 votes, securing the top spot. He also maintained his first-place position for the entire duration of the Korean drama male actor poll, winning the top spot for 68 consecutive weeks.
Furthermore, V's appearance on the variety show 'Seojin's House,' which has been airing on Japanese Amazon Prime Video since May 12th, has been gaining significant popularity, consistently ranking in the top 10 as of the 25th. V's overwhelming popularity in Japan continues to generate high expectations for his solo album as well.
