BTS has a great relationship with the chairman of their agency, Bang Si Hyuk. There have been many playful moments where the BTS members have “spilled the tea” on Bang Si Hyuk.
Here are 3 of these moments.
1. BTS speaking about Bang Si Hyuk and the agency
BTS released their song “Typical Trainee’s Christmas” before they debuted. In the song, they dissed Bang Si Hyuk and their agency (HYBE)!
I have no girlfriend because our debut is soon. Ha, idols are getting married yet we separate male and female trainees? What’s the point? We can’t love so how do we write love songs? If it were up to me, I’d encourage dating.
— RM’s lyrics in “Typical Trainee’s Christmas”
Our boss is indifferent, even three years ago. We’ve never had the dinner outing that everybody else has. Outside, it’s like a party but us guys are bunched up together like it’s the army. This year, I’ll either be practicing or sitting alone in a corner. Nothing changes no matter how hard I try, I’m solo. But boss, we don’t want a solo victory. We just want a dinner outing.
— Suga’s lyrics in “Typical Trainee’s Christmas”
Once BTS debuted, Jimin shared that they “demanded” a dinner from Bang Si Hyuk after writing the song!
We once produced a mixtape named ‘Trainees’ Christmas’ last year and demanded our producer Bang Si Hyuk buy us a company dinner (laughs).
2. Bang Si Hyuk’s habit when listening to music
In an episode of Mnet‘s Yaman TV, BTS hilariously imitated Bang Si Hyuk’s habit when he listens to music.
Suga then shared that he had a certain “expectation” of what Bang Si Hyuk would be like when he got accepted into the agency. This, however, was “shattered” when he was in the recording studio and saw Bang Si Hyuk’s habit when listening to music!
3. Suga savagely teasing Bang Si Hyuk
In an episode of SBS Power FM’s Cultwo Show, BTS spoke about how they made Bang Si Hyuk trend online in their previous appearance.
Suga then shared that Bang Si Hyuk had told them, “I don’t like being mentioned on broadcasts too much.“ Suga, however, savagely said that he believes that Bang Si Hyuk actually likes it when he’s mentioned on broadcasts!
Bonus: Lee Hyun imitating Bang Si Hyuk
