On the Thursday, August 31 episode of Dingo Story, V, whose real name is Kim Taehyung, surprised the fan Hayoung, who is preparing to become a military officer.

While she initially thought that she was being interviewed about her struggles at school, Hayoung was shocked when the BTS member called her name.

Hayoung and V’s unforgettable day

First, the idol tried to get to know Hayoung better by asking her why she dreams of becoming an army officer. To which she said that it’s because she wanted to do something for her parents and that it’s also a good opportunity overall.

Then, the student started opening up about her school concerns, disclosing that she previously failed exams. She said that it even reached the point where she almost lost contact with other people.

As way of coping up, she found strength by listening to BTS songs. In turn, V consoled her as he revealed that he also didn’t had many friends.

One of his advice was to just give it time, assuring her that she’ll get along with someone in the future.

Taehyung : I can relate to you so much. There was a time when I didn't have any friends.
I've felt that ppl don't like me, but it's not because I'm not a good person, but over time, you'll definitely get along with someone.
