Army’s, the fan group of BTS, all around the world have posted their videos under this Hashtag, following BTS’s call for the united dance party.

Trainee A is the new boy group that was formed in April 2021 and is planned to debut under the Hybe label, the same label that is the home of BTS and TxT.

Next to Leo, the pre-debut group consists of 5 other members Sangwon, Inhyuk, Jihoon, Sangwon, James, and JJ who most recently joined and who was revealed on August 24th.

Leo is one of the older members, being born in 2002. He was born in Australia and grew up there, making him fluent in English.

He moved to Korea when he was just seventeen years old to pursue his dreams of becoming a singer and K-Pop idol.

His vocals are very strong which makes it possible for him to become the main vocalist or even lead vocalist. He prefers singing over dancing, dislikes mint chocolate, and enjoys winter over summer.
