BTS has become one of the most popular bands across the world with an ever-growing fan base. The group is often seen breaking records and landing on the top of charts from time to time, within a few years of their debut. But did you know the band’s name actually stands for Bangtan Sonyeondan and what it actually means? Read along to know.
People around the world are familiar with the Korean boy band BTS. Irrespective if they are a part of the BTS Army or not they have heard other people mentioning and talking about the boy band. The group has set several records and achieved heights of success within a few years of arriving in the global music scene and often make it to the top of various music charts. The boy band is a lot of times referred to as Bangtan Boys and other names that can be possible full forms of the letter B-T-S. But this is not where the letters were initiated, they came from the words Bangtan Sonyeondan which is the actual full form of BTS as told by the band member J-Hope.
In an interview with Affinity Magazine, J-Hope mentioned that the real full form was Bangtan Sonyeondan which translated to Bulletproof Boy Scouts. The name has a pretty thoughtful meaning to it as Bangtan means something that is resistant to bullets. He explains that it symbolises the blocking out of stereotypes, criticism, expectations and anything negative which the youth of current times takes like bullets to themselves.
As per reports in Soompi, back in 2017, the boy group redesigned the logo and also shared that the letters B-T-S will now have an elaborate meaning. They have a backronym that expands to Beyond The Scene, which the band’s agency explains is significant to the youth that denies settling for something that doesn’t suit them and go beyond it. The band has time and again, sent across positive messages for their fan base which explains the love they receive worldwide.
