V, whose real name is Kim Taehyung, is a social butterfly. The BTS member has so many friends in the South Korean entertainment industry, that he even has a friend group nicknamed “Wooga Squad.” Keep reading to see who is included in V’s friend group!

What Is V’s ‘Wooga Squad’?

ICYMI, V made his acting debut in the 2016 K-drama titled Hwarang, where he met most of his friend group, now coined “Wooga Squad.” After meeting famous Korean actors Park Seo Joon and Park Hyung Sik, the trio immediately hit it off. Park Seo Joon later introduced his two costars to Parasite actor Choi Woo-shik and South Korean rapper Peakboy, creating their iconic friend group.

“WOOGA” is an abbreviation for the Korean phrase: “Woori-ga Gajok-inka?” which translates to “Are we Family?” since they spend so much time together.

The friend group starred in the 2022 Disney+ reality series In the Soop: Friendcation, where the young men spend a four-day friendship trip that takes them to the Goseong area.

Who Are the ‘Wooga Squad’ Members?

V certainly needs no introduction, as he’s one of the most famous K-pop stars in the world, a member of the biggest band in the world, BTS. He is the “maknae” of his friend group, a.k.a. the youngest (born in 1995).

He is also the oldest “Wooga Squad” member, born in 1988.
