In the July 9 upload on the BANGTANTV YouTube channel, V invites viewers along as he drives for a day, during which he makes stops at the dentist, eats kkomak (blood cockles), and plays virtual golf. The video, which runs for almost one hour, is the first episode of the boyband’s vlog series.
In the vlog, V says he'll play all of his recent favorite songs, which just happens to include Filipino artist Paolo Sandejas' "Sorry": Wow! V even sings along, which means he's got the lyrics memorized. OMG.
The young Universal Records Philippines singer-songwriter couldn’t believe his eyes when V played his song in his vlog.
"The fact that one of the biggest artists in the world knows my name AND listens to my songs is insane to me!" Paolo reacted. "This is a surreal experience and I have no words to express how honored I am that he enjoys a song I worked so hard on.”
Of course, Filipino ARMYs felt proud after finding out this exciting news. "Paolo Sandejas" even became a trending topic on Twitter under Music.
"BRUHHH!!! What is happening!!!" read Paolo's IG Story. "Ya boi is trending on Twitter."
Even award-winning actress and singer Lea Salonga congratulated Paolo.
"Okay, Filo ARMY, you'll get a kick out of this one," read Lea's tweet. "Congrats, Paolo!!! What a thrill!!!"
"Sorry" is part of Paolo's 2020 Purple Afternoon EP and now has over 405,000 streams and counting. Last June 26, 2022, Paolo was also the only Filipino artist chosen to perform at the GMA (Golden Melody Awards) in Taiwan.
