7 BTS Facts You Might Not Have Heard Of

By: @minsfire


BTS (Bulletproof Boyscouts/Beyond The Scene) have hit many charts worldwide with winning many awards. They have become globally famous with their songs and performances along with their love for their fans.

They have helped fans go through many struggles in life and their fans have given back their love. As BTS are global superstars now, there are some things that new/old fans may not know about. Here are some facts about them that you may not know.

 

1. BTS was originally supposed to debut in 2010

BTS has changed their lineup many times before the final line has formed. Originally, the group was supposed to be a Hip-Hop duo with Rap Monster (RM) and Hunchul. Their company, Big Hit Entertainment, changed their mind and decided that they wanted to add more people to the group.

Auditions were made and J-Hope and Suga ended up joining the team along with another member. More members were added but they ended up leaving anyway.

Supreme Boi was also in the team but he ended up leaving to become a producer at Big Hit and has collaborated with them in Cypher PT. 3. In 2011, Jungkook, V and Jin joined except that V wasn't known to the public. In 2012, Jimin joined the group and was the last member to join. Finally, they decided that it was time for them to debut in 2013 with their song "No More Dream".

2. J-Hope almost left BTS completely

In episode 3 of BTS' Burn the Stage, the members had talked about how Jimin and J-Hope were almost kicked out from the group before debut. The company had feared they wouldn't do well.

J-Hope ended up leaving the group but came back for the members. He recalls Jungkook hugging him and crying. RM had talked to the company and told them that they couldn't do this without J-Hope. What would BTS become without the sunshine of the group?

 

3. Members compete with who has the most retweets on Twitter

We all know that the members post pictures/videos of themselves on Twitter with them going up to a million likes. Of course there has to be some sort of competition since we all know they like to compete.

According to Jimin, the members compete over who gets the most retweets on their tweets, photos and videos. It's not surprising at all.

 

4. They used to practice 10 hours a day

According to J-Hope, the members would take over 10 hours a day just to practice dancing. Most of the members, excluding J-Hope and Jimin, weren't so good with dancing so they had to practice hard to make their performance perfect.

This could affect their overall health since dancing that long is extremely exhausting to their bodies. Now, it only takes them more than 4 hours a day and see which parts they need to practice with. They have gotten better with years of performing in front of fans and practicing. 

 

5. They aren't allowed to take pictures with fans

Not only BTS aren't allowed, but many idols aren't allowed to take pictures with fans for many reasons. There isn't a confirmed reason why, but there are many explanations to know why they aren't allowed to.

Taking pictures with fans can cause jealousy among many other fans and international fans. These fans could end up getting hate and spark fake rumors which could affect the idols' images.

Also, companies would want their idols' privacy and personal space to be protected. Not only that, but they want them to look professional, so taking a picture of their bare face isn't good for their image.

 

6. BTS has collaborated with UNICEF on ending violence
