From the lack of content, support, and action, ARMYs are taking action!
The members of BTS have gained so much praise since they debuted for a lot of different reasons. Aside from their insane talent, visuals, and charisma, the members are all extremely hardworking and put 110% into everything they do, and V is no different.
As the members are on a break from group schedules, the group has been focusing on their own promotions and activities.
V is no different and has wowed netizens with the amount of work he’s done. The last year, V has wowed after with his Paris Fashion Week appearance CELINE, his recent Vogue editorial, the filming of In The Soop: Friendcation with the Wooga Squad, and attending the Broker VIP premiere.

Yet, recently, netizens have raised concerns about the treatment of V by HYBE. While V was doing all these solo promotions, ARMYs raised their anger of the lack of exposure of V’s solo activities and promotion of any event attended by him.
The topic became hot on social media over the past few days, with ARMYs trending phrases sharing their anger towards HYBE and love for V.

Relationship between V and BH Music. Explanatory thread.
Since the solo era began, Taehyung has been one of the most active members with the most
official activities. This is how his company has supported and helped him:

Many even brought back a thread from back in 2018 when ARMYs were calling out BigHit Entertainment for their treatment of V.
I never brought this up until now because I feared people would assume that I was being biased but I won't stay silent anymore. I can't.
I wanna start off by saying, that I love & respect Bighit & Bang PD Nim. I really do, but I HATE their behavior towards Taehyung.

In particular, they also pointed out that while many members have had videos released on the group’s YouTube of their solo activities, V hasn’t. They explained that V’s last solo video was a year ago.

Along with the lack of content, netizens have called out HYBE for the lack of protection regarding V’s private life.
Recently, users have been sharing alleged images and videos of V and BLACKPINK‘s Jennie. Yet, despite the seriousness of the issue, netizens believe HYBE hasn’t responded correctly by issuing a statement or taking action against the user. Along with all the oither issues, ARMYs are voicing their anger.

Although many fans believe that if V was feeling disrespected he would say something, others believe that the evidence of the mistreatment is undeniable. They aren’t aiming the concerns at the other members but at HYBE for their alleged lack of respect and mistreatment of V.
