Lea Salonga penned a heartfelt message for Kim Taehyung, or more popularly known as V of BTS, as the latter celebrated his birthday on December 30.

"To the man whose voice can be compared to a cup of hot chocolate during a blizzard, a warm hug at the end of a really bad day, or a soothing whispered, 'It’s okay, I know how you feel,' after a good, hard cry," Lea wrote.

The Broadway star continued, "Thank you for your music, the sound of your laughter, your unique way of thinking, your love for your fellow members, your family and your fans, for your honesty, candor and sincerity... for you just being you. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KIM TAEHYUNG!"


 

 

 

Lea is a self-confessed BTS fan. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight last October, the Broadway star remarked that she applauds how BTS is representing Asian talent on the global stage.

"Being able to represent their country—they're unapologetically Korean, these seven—they perform dance numbers in hanbok, in front of this big palace in South Korea with lights. They are unapologetically who they are. They are representing everything good that there is about coming from this part of the world," she said in the interview. 

 

 

The singer added, "I'm watching that and as an Asian performer, as somebody that's been doing this forever, as somebody who is scared for my friends in New York City because of the racism that's happening and then to see them being unapologetically Asian, performing in Korean, and doing so with excellence, they are beautiful men and doing things in their own way."
