The happy moments in the final episode of In The Soop 2 left many impressions in the hearts of ARMYs. Not only that in the final episode there is also a TMI about V and the name his family was planning to give him in the past.
The story of V’s name was revealed during breakfast when Jin and Jungkook were preparing noodles for the 3 of them. V hummed a song and randomly added Jungkook’s name:
Jungkook asked V, “What about my name?” and V said that his name is a bit difficult to pronounce. Jungkook then said that his name is a rare name among people his age. V also later said that his name is also quite rare.
Meanwhile, Jin thinks that V’s name sounds more like a common name:
V then explained that “Taeyoung” was the more popular name instead of his own and the members started arguing over which name was more popular:
One special thing that V revealed is that he was once named Kim Dowoo and the members were all surprised:
V shared that his father and grandfather were trying to choose between the two names Kim Taehyung and Kim Dowoo. And in the end V’s grandfather insisted on choosing the name Kim Taehyung for him.
RM then said that he thinks if V’s name was Kim Dowoo, his stage name would be Dough:
The members also agree that the name Kim Taehyung sounds better than Kim Dowoo. But Kim Dowoo is also a beautiful and unique name. But at the end of the day, we have a great Kim Taehyung in the present.
