What is BTS' chapter 2? Shirtless V has fans welcoming 'naked era'
After Jin and Jimin, V becomes the next BTS member to show off his body by going almost shirtless
BTS’ chapter 2 may have started off on the wrong foot but it has been pretty exciting. Apart from solo ventures, the members are also showing new sides to them even if that means losing their clothes. We had first gotten the ‘grandpa’ of the group, Jin whose concept of revealing outfits consists of just unbuttoning the top two buttons ended up showing off his abs while Jimin simply rocked an open jacket with nothing underneath for BTS’ Weverse photoshoot. And now V aka Kim Taehyung has shocked fans by going almost shirtless.
While Jimin and Jungkook have no qualms flaunting their abs, the rest of BTS often hide their toned bodies. But it looks like, with chapter 2, that seems to be changing. Fans had resigned to never seeing V take off his shirt as he had confided that he was insecure about his stomach. He did tease fans with shirtless selfies with ARMY going gaga over his naked shoulders but that was the extent of V’s daring photos. So, no one was prepared when V posted on his Instagram Story of him in an unbuttoned shirt.

V gets shirtless on Instagram
After 2 years, following the unfortunate pandemic, we finally got BTS on music shows performing their new tracks and meeting fans. On June 16, V uploaded his outfits for ‘MCountdown’ which had been a YSL white puff-sleeved sheer blouse for ‘Yet To Come’ and a blue shirt for ‘For Youth’. Well, in his mirror selfies that V shared on Instagram, he lost the black waistcoat and completely unbuttoned the blue shirt to show off his toned stomach sending ARMY into a meltdown. Fans have taken to guessing who will be the next BTS member to go shirtless or show their abs in chapter 2.

In what will now be considered the infamous BTS Festa Dinner 2022 on June 14, the members shared the next chapter in their careers. Now dubbed chapter 2, following the release of their anthology album ‘Proof’, the members will be kicking off their solo careers and have revealed their plans from J-hope being the first member to release an album to Suga producing for Jimin and working on the sequel to ‘D-2’. There had been some misinterpretations as the internet thought the global K-pop group was going on hiatus or disbanding which had led to BTS personally assuring fans that they were still a group.
