South Korean boy band BTS (Bangtan Boys or "bulletproof boy scouts" in Korean) make dance-oriented, hip-hop-influenced K-pop. The group comprises Rap Monster (Kim Namjoon), group leader and rapper; Jin (Kim Seokjin), lead singer; Suga (Min Yoongi), rapper; J-Hope (Jung Hoseok), rapper and dancer; Jimin Park, singer and dancer; V (Kim Taehyung), singer; and Jungkook Jeon, singer, rapper, and dancer. Combining love ballads and tough-guy rapping with real lyrics about bullying and rejecting societal norms, they connected with disaffected youth and set themselves apart from the K-pop industrial machine. Formed by producer Bang Si Hyuk, BTS debuted in 2013 with the first installment of their "school trilogy," 2 Cool 4 Skool. A few months later, they released part two of the saga, the EP O!RUL8,2?. The group's final installment, Skool Luv Affair, was released around Valentine's Day in 2014. Later that year, BTS released their full-length debut album, Dark & Wild, featuring the single "Danger." As their fan base grew and international tours sold out, they released The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Pt. 1 in April 2015 and the follow-up, Pt. 2, some months later in November. ~ Matt Collar & Neil Z.
