How BTS Members Got Into BigHit

Annyeong everyone! It’s been almost 3 weeks since I last posted something. I feel bad about it honestly and I wanted to apologize, so forgive me.. The reason is quite simple really, I’ve been having my finals for two straight weeks. It’s very tiring and stressed me out.. Although this week I had a holiday, but well.. I wanted to post something, but my laziness got the best of me hehe 😁

Another reason to why I haven’t post anything until now is that I couldn’t really think of any topic to discuss.. Actually, I asked my friend to suggest me a topic and she suggested me something. This may seem like I really am lazy to post, not denying it since I am very lazy
😂 But this topic isn’t an easy topic and since I don’t want to get it wrong and anything.. I did research, I literally did that, no kidding 😅

And so this time I am going to discuss that topic which my dear friend suggested. As I said above, the topic isn’t easy to just discuss, I have to get it right. And now after my research, let’s discuss.


I dedicate this post to my dearest friend
😉😘 who I am not going to say it out loud because of privacy reasons 😏. Thank you for suggesting me the topic, I am really grateful.

“How The BTS Members Got Into BigHit Entertainment”

Lets start discussing from the oldest member to the maknae

1.     Kim Seokjin (Hangeul : 김석진)
Kim Seokjin or “Jin” attended
건국태 (Konkuk University) as a major in 연영과 (Theatre and Film). Mind you, the competition for getting into this university is pretty high, some notable alumnis are Lee Min Ho, Minho SHINEE, Yoo Ah In, Hyuna, Hyeri. When he was going to university, a BigHit staff noticed him and he got casted. He also actually got casted into SM Entertainment when he was only in middle school, but some say that he got scared and ran away. LOL 😂

2.    Min Yoongi (Hangeul : 민욘기)
Min Yoongi or “Suga” started to pursue music when he was still in Primary School. He accepted odd producing jobs here and there until he joined a Daegu hip-hop group called “D-TOWN”. He was a producer of that group under the stage name of “Glossy”. He auditioned for BigHit’s “Hit It” and won 2nd place. Till now, he still produces songs for both BTS and his own. He also goes solo under the name “Agust-D”.

3.    Jung Hoseok (Hangeul : 정호석)
Jung Hoseok or “J-Hope” was actually a dancer back in Gwangju. He had the stage name “Smile Hoya”. He even went to the same dance studio as Bigbang’s Seungri. He auditioned for BigHit’s special audition for dancers through the dance studio. He was tasked to record a dance video for the audition. When a BigHit staff came to take it about 2-3 hours later, they found him still working. This inspired the staff and he got casted after this.

4.    Kim Namjoon (Hangeul : 김남준)
Kim Namjoon or “Rap Monster” started hip-hop after hearing Epik High’s “Fly” and pursued it with the encouragement of his parents. He was introduced and recommended personally to BigHit’s CEO, Bang Si-Hyuk by Untouchable Sleepy (a hip-hop duo from TS Ent.) and he immediately got casted. He is the only BTS member who has gone through multiple member changes. He, a genius with the IQ of 148, originally had a dream to become a poet.

5.    Park Jimin (Hangeul : 박지민)
Park Jimin or “Jimin” started to dance when he was in Middle School and joined small competitions. He auditioned for BigHit in Busan when he was attending Busan High School of Arts. He was in the top class of Contemporary Dance. In his Junior year when he got accepted into BigHit, he transferred to Korean Arts School with Taehyung to major in music. He is seriously very hardworking, even his choreography teacher, Son Seung Deuk, acknowledges that he tries his hardest.

6.    Kim Taehyung (Hangeul : 김태형)
Kim Taehyung or “V” wanted to be a saxophonist when he started to play the saxophone and continued to play it for 3 years. At that time there was an audition in Daegu and he just attended to watch his friend as his parents were against him auditioning. He was about to leave when BigHit’s rookie development team saw him, told him to audition and called his parents for consent.

7.    Jeon Jungkook (Hangeul : 전정국)
Jeon Jungkook or “Jungkook” went to audition for Super Star K when he was only 13 years old, but got eliminated in the preliminaries round. After getting eliminated, 7 agencies immediately called him, including BigHit. He went to the different agencies to tour a little bit. When he saw Rap Monster rapping in BigHit, he felt amazed and decided to join the agency.

Now I’m donee!! 😀 And just so you know, I felt the need to convey my thoughts about this when I finished writing or typing it.

First of all, lets just appreciate our dearest BTS leader , Rap Monster, here. Without him, there maybe won’t be a BTS. He was once asked by BigHit’s CEO, Bang Si-Hyuk whether he wanted to do solo or be with BTS. Our dearest leader here immediately answered BTS without wasting time to think and without any hesitation. Bang PD-Nim was a bit shocked and repeated the question, only to earn the same answer.
 

Secondly, Jin majored in Theatre and Film. He didn’t have any background in dancing, let alone singing. But as you all can hear him now, his voice is just lovely. This is all due to his pure efforts in practicing and training. We can now see how far he got from when he auditioned. And mind you all, he certainly has come a very long way, all of BTS did.
 

Third, I am very curious who defeated Suga and won 1st place in that audition. I really am curious, no kidding 😅 And he is really good at songwriting and producing. Not all can do that very well, but he proved to us that he is amazing. He really is talented, our one and only Min Yoongi a.k.a. Suga.
 

Fourth, lets talk about J-Hope’s stage name when he was a dancer, shall we? Somehow I find it really fitting. Can you believe it, “Smile Hoya”, really? It just somehow fits very well to his image. Hey everyone it’s your hope, your angel – JHope.
 

Fifth, Jimin really does work hard and we all know it. The fact that he was already in the top class of Contemporary dance, didn’t bother him. He kept working really hard, even Jin is always worried that he’ll faint because of too much practicing. And his voice 😍 I really love to hear him singing his high notes 😍
 

Sixth, lets talk how V is just the definition of innocence. He literally originally wanted to be a farmer and follow his grandma’s footsteps. I wanna say thank you to whoever it was from BigHit that saw him and told him to audition. Without that person, maybe V wouldn’t be a part of BTS by now.
 

Lastly, lets talk about how amazing our golden maknae is. He got called from 7 agencies, believe it or not. Can you believe how young he was when he got called? He literally hit it off guys. Thank you for Rap Monster, for his rapping that amazed Jungkook. That made him choose to join BigHit. Maybe if he didn’t see Rap Monster rapping, he’d be in one of the other agencies right now. And don’t even start talking about his voice, because it really is amazing 😍 I love his voice along with the other BTS members’ voice 😍

I noticed that this post has become long when I initially didn’t think it’d be this long 😂 And so I am ending my post here. See you guys in my next post, which I don’t know when that will be yet 😂 Next week I’m going on my holiday, so I don’t know if I can post anything, but I’ll try. If anyone has a topic that they wanna suggest, please do.. I’ll surely discuss and write about it if I can 😁
 

Ohh and have you seen the BTS stickers in LINE yet? They are all so adorable 😍 I am really thankful that I’ve been saving points, because of that I could download them 😍
And so here is some random BTS photos to end my post. Annyeong everyone~ See you in my next post~
😉😁
