After Jungkook, V aka Kim Taehyung has become the target of shippers. Due to the fan service that K-pop idols are made to do, a lot of affectionate and bromance moments feed into fans’ delusions as they start ‘shipping’ two idols together. In fact, during BTS’ ‘PTD On Stage - Seoul’ concert, Jimin had shared that he did not like shipping or being affectionate for the sake of fan service and that any affectionate moments between the group were genuine. 

Unfortunately, like any K-pop group, there are many fans who have their own ships in BTS as they pair two members due to their "chemistry" or closeness. There have also been several fan wars inside the fandom as they try to defend their ship or feel that it is real. The latest fan war that has now erupted is due to a 2019 tweet and moments between V, Jimin and Jungkook during their ‘PTD On Stage’ concerts.

A 2019 tweet was also brought back where a Jikook fan had threatened V with a gun. A majority of the ARMY were shocked that jealous fans were sending death threats to V for coming between their ship. Meanwhile, those who ship V and Jungkook started tweeting about 'Taekook'. Many resorted to nasty tweets while trying to defend V, ‘Taekook’ or ‘Jikook’.
