One thing for certain is that they are both quite handsome. Even in casualwear, their visuals make them stand out.
Another thing they have in common is that they are both incredibly gifted actors. They’re both naturals.
Even some of their mannerisms and the way they pose for photos is so similar sometimes! Might they be long-lost brothers?
They’re both quite the meme kings. Both V and DiCaprio have inspired numerous memes.

Perhaps it is unrelated to their similarities… Nonetheless, let’s not forget this hilarious moment from the Run BTS! x The Game Caterers special.

This wouldn’t be the first time Leonardo DiCaprio has been compared to a BTS member or vice versa. Previously, J-Hope was compared to his character of Jack in Titanic due to styling.
