BTS‘s V has always been known for his cute boyish look and boxy smile.

He never failed to make people happy with his boy-next-door personality, his image being that of a friend or younger brother.

This is why ARMYs everywhere where shocked when this GIF started making its rounds on social media.

His muscular forearms and intense expression made everyone drop the boyish adjectives and start calling him masculine instead!

Since when has he become so muscular?

The forearms are great, but I like the atmosphere of the gif more ㅠㅠㅠㅠ

Well … Look at his muscles … I really like muscular men, Taehyung looks more manly .. I go crazy
