Daegu Jeil High School
Kim Taehyung attended the Geochang middle school when his family moved away from Daegu for a little while, but when his family re-shifted to Daegu, he got transferred to Daegu Jeil high school. There is an interview present online with one of V’s teachers from his high school where he says that V has always been an ideal student. He used to listen carefully and participate actively. He was driven by passion and was always kind to all. Way to go, V!!
There has been news from the district corporations that these places in Daegu will get restored in V theme.

These are the places that hold significance in V’s life, and they will be shared with the whole world. This is definitely the place you should have on your list when you visit Daegu.
Daegu Cyber University
Kim Taehyung auditioned for The Big Hit Entertainment when he was in Daegu and passed with flying colors. He then became a trainee for them. V graduated from the Korean Arts high school in 2014 and then enrolled in the Global Cyber University, majoring in broadcasting and entertainment. He graduated from here in the year 2020. In 2021, he started pursuing his Master’s in Business Administration at Hanyang Cyber University. Those invested in following V’s life closely will want to add these places to their list, but for now, let’s return to our focus on his charming hometown.
Daegu Dalseong Park
A few pictures of him are scattered on the internet in this place. Dalseong Park is a huge area with an exhibition hall and a zoo inside the campus. Various animals are present in the zoo, and with no entry fee, the fun just gets to another level. There are numerous spots spread around the zoo, along with huge playgrounds that have been provided with benches to relax and enjoy flora and fauna of the place after a tiring tour. There are very mushy and cute pictures of Kim Taehyung with elephants which means for V’s hometown tour, this place is a must.
This is a sushi restaurant that V visited a couple of years back with his friends. This place is located nearby from the park and Bisan deong where he lived. The sushi from this place is amazing. Funny story, the owner had not recognized Kim Taehyung when he came to his restaurant; some years later, he recognized, and now there is a ‘V SET’ on the menu in the restaurant in Daegu. It is what he had ordered when he came, and it is said that the food is amazing, and along with the smell, it just makes your mouth water instantly.
Daegu Seomun Market
This market is another heart-throbbing tourist spot in Deagu. This is basically like the gigantic commercial market where you get almost anything and everything. It is very nearby to Bisan deong, so it will be redundant if we do not put it on our ‘V tour list in Daegu’ because Kim Taehyung has often come to this place. The entire market is quite famous for the savory Korean street foods that the vendors serve and definitely for various commercial items like fashion accessories, earrings, and lifestyle utilities in various designs – from basic to modern touch. The food around the corners is also delicious, and with the market having metro services available, it just becomes very easy for people to travel safely and smoothly.
There are some amazing food spots with their very own specialty, which is definitely going on the list.
