VAV is a K-Pop group that gained considerable popularity soon after their debut. However, they were severely underappreciated for the talent and innovation they had as artists. VAV also garnered attention for how they treated their fans with love and respect, without distancing themselves as idols. Despite such distinguishing characteristics, VAV often goes under the radar of new K-Pop fans.
Perhaps one of the reasons why this has happened over the years is because VAV hasn't had a proper comeback in a while owing to the military enlistment of various members. The change in their member line-up right at the dawn of their career wasn't very conducive to their growth either. Nonetheless, VAV persevered, focusing on their music rather than the limiting circumstances, and broke into the mainstream market with their distinct sound.
Here's what the VAV members are up to now!
