V Factory was an American pop/R&B/urban boy band produced by late former pop artist Tommy Page. The members have yet to confirm what the "V" stands for. Wesley Quinn, in an interview with Popstar! Magazine, stated that "the V is a hidden meaning between the five of us." He also states that the meaning will come out like the FedEx box in the movie, Cast Away, which stars Tom Hanks.[1]
