What’s V Doing These Days?
Meanwhile, the K-pop artist recently released a video of himself supposedly playing the trumpet, stating that he would soon like to move to a saxophone. Sharing the video, V captioned it, according to the BTS Weverse translation, “Chet Vaker acting like performing (I should change it to a saxophone)”.
V, who plays an instrumental version of Frank Sinatra’s “Autumn Leaves” in the video, had combined the name of famous American jazz trumpeter Chet Baker and his name V and created Chet Vaker. J-Hope was rather baffled and asked if he was actually playing the trumpet.
He wrote, “For sure it is acting right? You surprised me so much”. J-Hope also went on to drop multiple clapping emoticons. V answered, “It’s real”.
