BTS (방탄소년단 / Bangtan Seonyeondan) is a 7-member group under BIGHIT MUSIC from South Korea.  Currently, they are the most popular group in the world.  BTS, if translated roughly in English, means: "Bulletproof Boy Scouts". They are also known as "Bangtan Boys", or "Beyond the Scene" (official rebranded in 2017). Although BTS has been around since 2010, they officially debuted on June 13, 2013. Prior to their official debut, there were constant changes among the members; RM is the only member left from the original line up.


21st century pop icon, BTS members are: RM (29), Jin (31), Suga (30), J-Hope (29), Jimin (28), V (28) and Jungkook (26). Each member has his own unique charms but together, they have a wonderful, tight chemistry/bond that unifies them into a spectacular group.  ARMY (Fans) sometimes refer to the following units among BTS:


Hyung line (Older members): RM, Jin, Suga, and J-Hope

Maknae line (Younger members): Jimin, V, and Jungkook

Rap Line: RM, Suga, and J-Hope

Vocal line: Jin, Jimin, V, and Jungkook

Dance line: J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook


BTS have artistic freedom to experiment many music styles, genre and sometimes the Rap Line sings and the Vocal Line raps etc. Since the beginning of their career, BTS members have all taken part in the creation of their music and outputs, with many members involved in creating the melody, writing lyrics, producing the song or taking part in the choreography and visual aspects of their outputs.  Their authentic sincerity, passion, and hard work in overcoming various challenges throughout the years has made them very successful, respected, and loved by their fans, named A.R.M.Y (Adorable Representative MC for Youth). 


BTS are currently focussing on their Solo projects and will proceed with their group project after all of them have enlisted in the ARMY (18 months).  At the moment only Jin and j-hope are doing their Military service and will be discharged in 2024.


Individual PROFILE by BigHit Music






Leader / Rapper / Producer

September 12, 1994



Tell me your story.  I want to hear your voice, and I want to hear your conviction

No matter who you are, where you're from, your skin colour, your gender identity, just Speak Yourself

Find your name, find your voice, by speaking yourself

- RM (UN, 2018)


His family moved to Ilsan-gu when RM was a young child and so he grew up there. RM is the first BTS member scouted by Big Hit after a fellow artist's recommendation to audition back in 2010.  At that time, he was a well-known, underground battle rapper by the names: "Rap Monster and/or Runch Randa".  Having outgrown both those names, his name is just RM now. During his first speech at the UN General Assembly in New York City in 2018, he made a personal, yet powerful speech calling on the youth to 'speak up', to find and live their authentic self, and touching upon the importance of self care and empowerment of youths (the quote above is taken from this speech). It has inspired many ARMY, becoming an anthem to those facing challenges in their daily lives. 


RM is the official leader of BTS and the only member who is fluent in English. He learned English by watching the DVDs of the American TV show, "Friends," a gift from his mother. ARMY is used to seeing RM help the other members to express their thought in English and sometimes became their translator during their interviews in US. It is well known that RM has a high IQ (148 when he was 15 years) and in the past joined Korean variety shows to solve problems. In addition, RM has a strong love and interest in the arts, various books and exploring nature. He even coined the word "Namjooning" that the fandom adopted to describe this habit of taking time to just relax, think and get in touch with nature. This activity is important to his music making process and especially in writing poetic and meaningful lyrics which is essential in BTS music.


Although RM is the youngest among Suga, Jin and J-Hope, they respect him as a charismatic leader.  His maturity, humbleness, and ability to lead by example has also earned the respect of the 'Maknae Line,' or youngest members. It is with his leadership, their humbleness and strong love and respect for each other that is key to BTS's success.

(MS 13 Dec. 2022 - 12 June 2024)


Initially, Jin was a university student with an intention to become an actor. After being scouted on the street by Big Hit, he became inspired to become a singer and has worked diligently as a member of BTS to improve his vocals and skills as a musician, including playing the piano, learning instruments, writing songs and producing, e.g. latest project BE.


As the oldest BTS member, he does not use his position as "the eldest" in relation to his interaction with other members (despite Asian society placing emphasis on social hierarchy base on age). Due to his handsome "visuals", Jin is also affectionately well known as "Mr. World Wide Handsome" among the members and fans and it is now a long running joke. In addition, Jin is an amazing cook! He can be seen cooking for other members and on the various media content. He used to have a food vlog, called: "Eat Jin," which fans can see him eating various food deliciously either alone or with the BTS members as guests. Lastly, Jin has a wonderful sense of humor - he likes to tell jokes and make everyone laugh.

*Currently doing MS since December 2022

Suga was born in Daegu, South Korea.  He started writing songs and learned about MIDI when he was 13 years old. He was also an underground rapper, named "Gloss," and known for his rapid-fire rhymes. His current stage-name, "Suga," is derived from the word "shooting guard" due to his love for basketball. He originally joined Big Hit as a 'producer' but ended up as a member of BTS. Despite being a member of BTS, Suga continues to produce many BTS songs as well as works for other artists, including those that inspired him into becoming a musician. 


Among fans, Suga is known to be the quieter and sometimes more shy when compared to other members. However, he can be very vocal about a wide range of topics, ranging from mental health to politics. He openly expresses his thoughts through his own mixtape, where he uses the name: "Agust D" (Suga spelled backwards and a homage to Daegu). Army has also called him "Minstradamus" for being able to "predict" future BTS achievements correctly (e.g. wanting a #1 on the Billboards chart or performing at the Grammy's etc.). Related to this, you can see Army often using the following phrase: "What Yoongi wants, Yoongi  gets!"

J-Hope was born in Gwangju, South Korea. Being proud, he likes to reference his hometown in his songs. Prior to joining Big Hit, J-hope was a well-known street dancer. While a trainee at Big Hit, he was featured in other artists' work, such as rapping in Jo Kwon's "Animal". Not many people realized that he only learned how to rap after he became a member of BTS. He is also affectionately called "Hobi" or "Sunshine" by members and ARMY because of his bright, hopeful personality. His smile is often what people notice first about J-Hope, especially when he dances. J-Hope used to have a YT segment called: "Hope On The Street" to showcase his various dance skills.
Among the BTS members, he is well-known as a "strict dance leader" and often working to mentor other members to improve their dance skills. Recently, he mentioned that the members have become better at dancing after being together for so long that he doesn't need to be strict as before. J-Hope also has produced his mix-tape "Hope World" (2018) and a released a homage cover single and music video for "Chicken Noodle Soup ft. Becky G" (2019) with full support of the original creator of the song.  J-Hope is also known to be organized/neat, unique sense of fashion among the members and never miss to share a selca on their Twitter for every occasion.

Jimin was born in Busan, South Korea. Prior to joining Big Hit, he was a student at the Busan High School of Arts where he was training in modern dance. It was at his teacher's urging that he attended Big Hit audition and became a trainee. He moved to Seoul and was a student there together with V. Jimin was the last member to join BTS before their official debut and he is well known among members to be the hardest working during their trainee days. Jimin is well regarded for his sharp, clean dance movements, unique singing voice, and his adorable, affectionate personality. For their latest album, BE, Jimin was the Project Manager for the special album.  


Since Jimin and V are the same age, the pair used to tease and prank other BTS members often when they were younger. Overtime, their friendship has only gotten stronger and the 'soulmates' created a special song called 'Friends' for the Map of the Soul: 7  album in 2020. As both Jimin and Jungkook are from Busan, when they have little arguments or bicker, Jimin likes to tease Jungkook by saying he's born earlier.

V was born in Daegu and then moved to Geochang, where he lived with his family before joining Big Hit as a trainee. V was actually accompanying his friend to the audition when he was noticed by Big Hit staff. Big Hit did not reveal V as a member prior to their official debut; he was a 'hidden member' until 2013. until 2013. V is known for his unique, low voice that is often described as 'soulful' and touching by listeners. Currently, Army is awaiting his upcoming mixtape, which may be released before the end of 2020. However, one of his songs, "Blue & Grey" has taken from the mixtape and included in their latest album, BE. 


Besides being a musician, V also acted in a Korean historical drama called, "Hwarang". He and Jin also contributed to the drama's official soundtrack with a song called, "It's Definitely You." V is also known for his good looks, visual and various facial expressions during performances, media and content. Even a few younger idols chose him as their idol. In 2017, V received first place as the “Top 100 Most Handsome Faces of 2017“.  V is also known for his love of photography and the arts. He has pseudeonym 'Vante' for his photography projects. As for their album, BE, V was the album's Visual Director.

Jungkook was born in Busan, South Korea.   He is called the "golden maknae (youngest)" by members of BTS because he is good at everything (literally - he is good at everything!) Jungkook has also composed several songs: "Magic Shop: from the Love Yourself: Tear album, "Your Eyes Tell" from the Japanese album: Map of the Soul The Journey, and "Stay" from their album, BE. In addition to singing, composing, and producing, Jungkook is also athletic - good at many sports, excels at drawing, cooking, photography, video editing, and directing etc. He became a trainee at the young age of 13 and chose Big Hit Entertainment specifically because of RM. 


Jungkook is also called JK by other members and ARMY. He grew up well as the other members of BTS took care and mentored him since he was a teenager. Their bond can be seen in Jungkook's solo song called, "Begin;" where he expressed his thanks and emotions for the other members. Lastly, JK also has a studio called: "Golden Closet," where he also produced a series of videos (which are ARMY's favorites) under GCF (Golden Closet Film). With the skills that he developed, JK was the lead director for the MV of "Life Goes On" (BE, 2020).

I will edit or update any info in the forum when and where it is possible (I will never be able to edit other people's posts).   Hopefully, other ARMYs will also join in spreading their message of love and positivity. Thank you.

Three videos were recently added to the BANGTAN TV channel on YouTube. The descriptions currently say that they're performed by the Bangtan BoysJinRap Monster, and SUGA.

The first video tells people to vote, the 2nd one introduces their workroom, and the 3rd is a Christmas video that seems to remix many famous past songs together.
