The Bangtan Boys, otherwise known as Bangtan Sonyeondan, BTS, and their Korean name 방탄소년단, is a seven-member hip-hop group formed by the music company Bighit Entertainment.
In the picture above, from left to right, the members are: J-Hope (Jung Hoseok/정호석), Jimin (Park Jimin/박지민), Rap Monster (Kim Namjoon/김남준), Jungkook (Jeon Jeongguk/전정국), Jin (Kim Seokjin/김석진), V (Kim Taehyung/김태형), Suga (Min Yoongi/민윤기).
BTS debuted on June 12, 2013 with the title album 2 Kool 4 Skool which featured seven tracks. The lead single in their debut album is called No More Dream.

Kim Seokjin is BTS’s oldest member. His birthday is September 12, 1994. Because there is a large age gap between him and the youngest member Jungkook, he frequently tries to be find ways to relate to each other. Jin’s position in BTS is a vocalist. He loves Princess Peach (wants Japanese fans to call him Jin Hime which means Princess Jin), calls himself good-looking often (not without reason), and can be found eating at any given time (blinks his eyes more when he’s hungry I mean, how adorable can you get?). Sometimes his eating expeditions are filmed and uploaded to one of their many social media accounts. He is known as “Eat Jin” and has a 45 minute playlist on YouTube of him eating you will not regret watching. He is the broadest shouldered member, and is called the mother of the group.
“It’s all over! He raps like Jay-Z!Oh My God! Period!” – Suga on Jin

Min Yoongi is the sweggiest rapper of BTS. Somehow, after all of BTS’s promotions, he still has hair on his head (BTS HYYH2 era: Mint Yoongi). Yoongi is also in a relationship with a neck pillow that he brings with him whenever Bangtan has to travel. He sleeps often, but also produces some of the group’s most popular tracks, such as:

As a rapper to Bangtan, Jung Hoseok is known as the sunshine of the group. He speaks positively and is kind to everyone. He has a small habit of screaming constantly, but he is also a talented dancer!

Park Jimin is an angel that has come to Earth to bless us all. As a vocalist in the Bangtan, Jimin is known for his gentle demeanor and laughter – the former that can be found in compilation form on YouTube. He shares an unrequited love with Jungkook, who he treats like actual perfection. Not only is Jimin kind and beautiful, but he can also dance and destroy you simultaneously. When BTS debuted, Jimin was quite proud of his abs – in 2015, they melted away with the summer heat. Fans prefer that he eats well and stays healthy over starving himself and feeling self-conscious.
Kim Taehyung is the strange, yet beautiful member of the group. He raps and sings, and is best known for his deep voice.
“Everyone says this but people with blood type AB are either a complete genius or a complete idiot. He’s both. But sometimes he comes up with really good ideas and surprises us.” -Suga on V

The main meme of BTS, Jungkook is known as the Golden Maknae (youngest member). His main vocals will blast you off the face of the earth, and you will fly away smiling. Despite his adorable features, anyone about to bias him should be aware that he can go from zero to sixty in .0000125 seconds.
