1. All BTS members come from small town

In a sharing about BTS, PD Bang Shi Hyuk said that there was an interesting fact about BTS, which is that all members of the group came from small towns to Seoul to pursue their music path.
When I first met the members, my purpose was not to make them become popular artist in all over the world. My company was unknown, and the members were from small towns, I didn’t even dare to expect that someday, they can be this famous. A short time after the members gathered at Seoul to start their career, I just thought that I could only make some meaningful things for these young boys”.

If you check BTS’s profile, you can see that all the boys lived in small towns in Korea before. RM and Jin were born and raised in Gyeonggi-do, Suga and V lived in Daegu, J-Hope came from Gwangju whereas Jimin and Jungkook were born in Busan.

Thanks to BTS’s non-stop efforts, from the residents of Korean small towns, the boys are now the worldwide influential idols. Their popularities also become the pride of their hometowns, in which the members were born and raised.

3. Winner’s leader is also the youngest member of the group

This is such a “strange” case, in which the leader of Winner – Seung Yoon – is also the youngest member of the group. This male idol was born in 1994 while other members were born in 1993 or before. This is the typical example to prove that leadership and management skills are much more important than age in choosing the group’s leader.

4. TWICE is a non-visual group

If you have racked your brain to know who is the actual visual of TWICE, then you should stop thinking, as TWICE is a group that doesn’t have any visual. Simply because all members are so pretty and beautiful that PD Park Jin Young made the decisions to give the visual roles to all 9 girls!

5. T-ara is a girlgroup without a leader

Before taking the hiatus, T-ara was active with the members taking turns to be the leader, each member would be chosen as the leader for one year and then the role came to other members. That’s why T-ara has never been named in the lists of the best or the most talented leaders in Kpop. Despite this fact, T-ara’s method to manage the group is considered one of the most creative and flexible solutions in Kpop.
