While we say that the names of BTS members are complicated, the most popular way to call Jin-kun is "Jin.
Or Jin-kun.

Jin," which is also his stage name, is taken from his real name, Seokjin.

Another nickname, "Jin-nim," is written 님 in Korean, which means "like.
sun goddessThat's what I mean.

Jin-kun's family is rich and a monk, and he looks like a prince, which is a two-dimensional setting. This is the origin of the name "Jin-nim.

Shuga (genus of dewdrops)

Suga (Yoongi), a member of BTS (Bangtan)

English: SUGA
Hangul:슈가

Real name: Min Yoongi
English: Min Yoon-Gi
Hangul: 민윤기
Kanji: Minhang Qi

Nickname:.yungi (Korean hourglass drum)Minyungi, Minshuga

Shuga has skin as white as white sugar.
So, there are various theories as to the origin of the stage name, which may have come from the word "sugar" (sugar).

Whenever Shuga himself is asked to explain his stage name, he sometimes changes the reason.
Tricky.

  • White skin and sweet smile
  • Hip-hop shouldn't be too sweet, so I pulled out the R's.
  • In hip-hop terminology, sugar means "addictive."
  • SUGAR is a sweetness that can be tasted with success

Nevertheless, the first theory of fair skin and mottled skin is the most likely one.
It's a fashionable stage name, Shuga.The name "Yoongi" is often called by fans.

And Yoongi's repertoire of aliases is also extensive.

  • Old Yoongi (sometimes staggering)
  • Chan Chan Memeun Pun Pun (means something like "super awesome guy" in Korean)

Jayhope

BTS (Bantan) member Jayhope (Hosok)Quote.Pinterest

Stage name: J-Hope
English: J-HOPE
Hangul: 제이홉

Real name: Hoseok Jeong
English: Jeong Ho-Seok
Hangul: 정호석
Kanji: Zheng No. Tin

Nickname:.hobbiHosok, Hopi

Mr. Hosok, who is rarely called Jayhope.
The name "Jayhope" comes from the Greek myth of "Pandora's Box.

Zeus gave Pandora a box (originally a jar) filled with all kinds of misfortune. When she arrived on earth, she opened it out of curiosity, and all the plagues flew out onto the earth, but she hastily covered it up so that only hope remained.

Quote.goo dictionary

The sensibility is too artistic for me to understand.I can almost hear you saying, "I'm sorry, but...

Skip the Pandora story, the point is that Hoseok is a BTS member.I think it is safe to say that "Hope" was added to the name because of its "hopeful existence.

The origin of the nickname "Hobi," as it is often called, is a bit Korean.

In Korea, when a close friend has a patchum after his or her name, 아 (a) or 이 (yi) is added.
Hope (홉) with 이 (yi) becomes 홉이 (hobi).
(Why? and what is a patchum? (I'll learn more about that later...)

hobbitOr you could just call it cute!

RM

BTS (Bantan) member R.M. (Nam)Quote.Pinterest

English: RM
Hangul: 알엠

Real name: Kim, Nam June
English: Kim Nam-Joon
Hangul: 김남준
Kanji: Kim Nan Shun

Nickname:.NaMNam June, Rapmon.

RM, the main rapper of BTS, is an acronym for Rap Monster.
The nickname Rapmon stands for Rap Monster.

Lapmon is another nickname that is used quite often, but I have the impression that Nam and Nam June are more common.

In terms of odd nicknames.God of Destruction.
The name derives from an episode in which he breaks anything he touches.

Stage name: Jimin
English: JIMIN
Hangul: 지민

Real name: Park Jimin
English: Park Ji-Min
Hangul: 박지민
Kanji: Imin Park

Nickname:.diminJiminy, Jimina, Jimini

Jimin is the least varied of the BTS members.

Sometimes I call him Jimin, sometimes I just call him Jimin.
There are many variants of Jimina, Jimini and Jimin with the law of (a)(b) for the close ones.

Korean Language Study - Usage of Jimina and Jimini

  • Name + (a) is used to call out
    "Hey, Jiminer!" Image of.
  • Name + (a) is other usual use
    Gimini really is just too cute!"

So, grammatically, fans rarely use Jimina.

Japanese fans are "theJimin.It is often referred to as "the

The other is "mangetok," which means "white, glutinous cheeks," and "mangetok," which means "white, glutinous cheeks.
Some call them "chicks" because of their cute protruding lips.

V

BTS (Bantan) member V (Tete)Quote.Pinterest

Stage name: Vi
English: V
Hangul: 뷔

Real name: Kim Tae-hyun
English: Kim Tae-Hyung
Hangul: 김태형
Kanji: Kim Tae-Hyung

Nickname:.weavingTaehyun, Taehyun-ah, Taehyun-i.

He has the most complicated name.
The BTS name complication culprit is this girl.

Japanese fans call him "Tete" as in 100%.

Tae-Tae" was originally a nickname given to Taehyung by a friend from his school days.
For some reason, this tete-a-tete calling has become mainstream in Japan, but it seems to be a minority in other countries.

Perhaps it is because we feel that the sound of "tete" is a way of calling him that matches his adorable tete-hyun character.

What is the art name V, which is rarely called?
When she was considering her stage name for her debut, her office producer (a.k.a. Pan PD) suggested a letter of the alphabet, and it became V, which stands for victory.

The law of (a, a) for close, which means
Some people call Tae-tae-kun "Taehyona" or "Taehyoni," which is grammatically incorrect.
The correct names are "taehyun-ah" and "taehyun-i".

Tete-kun is spelled TAEHYUNG.
Since it ends in NG, it is not continuous sounding.

Incidentally, BTS's little brother is a group called TXT.
I have a Taecyeon-kun as a member of that group as well.
There is a tidbit that TXT's Taehyun-kun is spelled a little differently.

  • BTS Taehyung → 태형, TAEHYUNG
    Nicknames are Taehyung-ah and Taehyung-i.
  • TXT Taehyun → 태현/TAEHYUN
    Nicknames are Taehyona and Taehyoni.
