방탄소년단 (Bangtan Sonyeondan), also known as BTS, and in Japanese, 防弾少年団 (Bōdan Shōnendan), (Bangtan Boys) is a seven member South Korean boy group formed by Big Hit Entertainment. While 방탄소년단 and 防弾少年団, the group's name in Korean and Japanese, both directly translate to "bulletproof boy scouts”, on July 4, 2017, Beyond the Scene became a backronym for the name.
The group debuted on June 13, 2013 with the song "No More Dream", followed by "We Are Bulletproof Pt.2". The group’s seven members are: RM (Hangul: 김남준, Kim Namjoon, previously known as Rap Monster), Jin (Hangul: 김석진, Kim Seokjin), Suga (Hangul: 민윤기, Min Yoongi, also known as, Agust D), J-Hope (Hangul: 정호석, Jung Hoseok), Jimin (Hangul: 박지민, Park Jimin), V (뷔) (Hangul: 김태형, Kim Taehyung), and Jungkook (정국) (Hangul: 전정국, Jeon Jungkook).
