BTS‘s Jin and V have a “unit” of their own, or a nickname that the fans gave specifically for the two of them together, and that is the “Gwangsan Kims”. While the nickname simply came from their last names being the same, Jin and V actually share so much in common – and fans would have no trouble believing they were real brothers!
Note RM also has the last name Kim, his originates from Gangneung and is not actually the same as Jin and V’s last name Kim from Gwangsan. When the three of them are together, they are referred to as the more inclusive “Kim Brothers”.
1. Birth Month
Both Jin and V were born in December. Jin was born on December 4, 1992 and V was born on December 30, 1995. These December-born beauties would share the birthstone of turquoise – which in some cultures is considered to be a lucky charm, as the Kims are too for countless ARMYs.
2. Meaning of the Middle Character from Their Names
The middle character “Seok” from Jin’s legal name Kim Seokjin means “Large” in its Chinese character. His name, given to Jin by his grandfather, means “To be a large treasure”. The middle character “Tae” from V’s legal name Kim Taehyung also means “Large”. V’s name, also given to him by his grandfather, means “To have a largely successful life”. Both are most definitely following the destinies set by their names – and have become largely successful figures indeed, as well as huge treasures for ARMYs around the world.
Jin and V are both around 5’10” tall. They both have gorgeous figures, with wide set shoulders and long arms and legs. When the Kims stand next to each other, it’s double trouble for the fans, to be blessed with so much visuals at once!
4. Facial Features
The Kims are well known and adored for their unique eye shapes. Both Jin and V boast these gorgeous mono-lidded eyes that are long and big which stand out as their strongest facial feature.
Sometimes, depending on their conditions, Jin and/or V will develop a crease over the eyes – creating a whole new double-lidded vibe. Coincidentally, this crease only appears over their left eyes!
In fact, their eyes aren’t the only facial features that Jin and V have in common. In general, the way their faces are structured is very similar, making them resemble each other a lot. So when their pictures are combined – using apps and as shown above – it is hard to tell apart the differences!
5. Facial Expressions
Having similar facial features, Jin and V are often spotted making the same facial expressions. These make the Kim brothers look especially alike. This uncanny resemblance could fool anyone to believe that Jin and V are related.
Above all the reasons, fans would most likely buy that the Gwangsan Kims are real brothers because Jin and V have the same adorable personalities. They are both silly, down-to-Earth, and simply lovable. They both have an irresistible amiable side…
… and their serious, hard-working, dedicated side…
… and even the dorky cute side that could charm any and everybody! Who could possibly deny this unbelievably real brother-like chemistry between the Gwangsan Kims? The brotherhood is real here.
