BTS, short for Bangtan Sonyeondan, has become a household name in the music industry, but their rise to fame was not always easy. Their journey started back in 2013 when Big Hit Entertainment, a relatively small company at the time, put together a 7-member group consisting of Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook. Despite their impressive dance moves and lively performances, they struggled to gain recognition in the crowded Korean music market. However, their perseverance and hard work eventually paid off as they started to gain international attention with their album "The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Part 2," and their popularity has only continued to grow from there. Looking back at their early days, it's clear that BTS's formation was not just the result of talent, but also the result of a group of talented individuals who shared a common passion and drive for success.
