The septet comprising V, RM, Jin, Jimin, Jungkook, Suga, and J-hope, are bonafide fans of the country singer. 

On Sunday, V aka Kim Taehyung took to his Instagram stories and shared that he is listening to 'Fortnight'. 

'The Tortured Poets Department' album, Swift's eleventh studio endeavour, features a total of 16 tracks.

As per The Hollywood Reporter, Swift claimed the title of Spotify's most-streamed artist in a single day, while 'The Tortured Poets Department' became the platform's most-streamed album in 24 hours.

Meanwhile, the boy band is currently busy with its mandatory military service. In 2023, V made his solo debut with the songs 'Slow Dancing', 'Love Me Again', and 'Rainy Days'. The same year in November, it was announced that V had enlisted for his mandatory military service. In February this year, he was assigned to the ‘Ssangyong Unit’ of the 2nd Corps. He was reported to be serving under the Special Task Force of the Military Police Corps. 

For those unversed, the decision by BTS to enlist in the military helped avert a sticky situation for South Korea's government. Military service is compulsory for all able-bodied males under 30 years old. The current system allows for some exceptions on the grounds of exceptional service to the country. Some top athletes and classical musicians have been excused on this basis, but pop artists have not. 

Big Hit had said in a statement, "We ask you for your continued love and support for J-hope until he completes his military service and safely returns. Our company will spare no effort in providing support for our artist."

V's discharge date is set for June 10, 2025.
