One of these all-but-forgotten videos is from January 23, 2016. On this day, BTS put on a killer dance show to Chase & Status‘ “Hypest Hype” at the 2015 KBS Song Festival. This supercharged performance kicks off with dance king J-Hope at center…

 

…then he briefly switches with Jungkook

 

…before V charges forward!

 

V’s charisma that day was undeniable…

 

…and each move he made was bursting with power.

 

At the time, V wasn’t officially part of the dance line, but after seeing this, many fans wondered why!

 

V became a lead dancer in 2018, and no one can say he didn’t earn it! Check out the whole performance here:
