Role models should be able to inspire others with their behavior or achievement, and must give the younger members of our society a courage to carry on and move forward.
For artists, the existence of a role model is even more important since majority of them need someone who could guide and motivate them on a regular basis in order to blossom as a magical being who gives color to our society.
Let's meet these five celebrities who chose K-pop boy group BTS' V as their role model, and find out why they find him so inspiring!
