BTS’s Suga has become in charge of predicting the group’s next achievement or goals and is known by fans as Minstradamus or the baby shaman. Let’s take a look at his past predictions that allowed him to hold these titles!
In 2015, he made a statement on Honey FM about wanting to hold a concert at a large stadium.
“Of course we want to hold a concert at a large venue.”
“They say to dream big so…”
“How about the Jamsil Stadium…”
And a just a few years later in 2018, BTS held their world tour LOVE YOURSELF at the Jamsil stadium!

In his 2016 solo mixtape, he makes a bold statement about his next goal being the Billboards.
And in 2017, they became the first K-Pop group to win at the BBMAs!

In the 2016 Bon Voyage, Suga writes in his letter that he hopes they will win a daesang…
…and just a few months later, they won album of the year!

During a 2018 fan meeting VCR filming behind, Suga made the request to have V and J-Hope cry if they won the Daesang that year.
And during the 2018 MAMA, V and J-Hope could be seen crying the most after winning the award.
Suga’s skills became known to the public and was even asked a question about this on national news.
Anchor: We heard there is a shaman in the group?
Suga: Anything I say seems to come true
During a 2018 press conference, Suga stated that his next goals were to be number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and 200, go to the Grammys, hold a stadium tour and become one of the most influential singers in the world.
Later that same year, they hit the number one spot on the Billboard 200 chart.
They held a stadium tour in 2019…
…and hit the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2020.
He even previously predicted the rankings for the Billboard Hot 100 chart. “3, 6, 9 seems to common so how about 2, 5, 7?”
The actual rankings for BTS’s “Dynamite” show they ranked first and second before going down to 5 and 7.
They then were invited to the Grammys as presenters…
…to collaborative performers…
…to GRAMMY nominees!
This was Suga’s response after finding out about the nomination! “I got tired of waiting after doing early morning rehab and fell asleep! I guess I found my reason to work on my rehab even harder! Thank you ARMY! Let’s enjoy today!”
Well, I guess it’s true when they say; “What Suga wants, Suga gets!”
