Before BTS became the global phenomenon they are today, they were just a group of young and aspiring idols trying to make their mark in the competitive K-Pop industry. And like many idols, they had their share of adorable and endearing moments during their pre-debut days.
For those who may not know, BTS (also known as Bangtan Sonyeondan or Beyond the Scene) is a Korean boy group consisting of seven members: Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook. The group was formed by Big Hit Entertainment in 2013 and made its debut in June of the same year with the single “No More Dream.” Since then, BTS has gained a massive following not just in South Korea, but also in other parts of the world, with their music, performances, and personalities resonating with fans all over.
But before all the fame and success, BTS was just a group of cute and energetic boys, who were full of dreams and aspirations. In fact, some fans might be surprised to see how different the members looked before they became popular.
BTS’s cute childhood pictures are so lovely, how could anyone not adore them? It’s always interesting to observe how your prejudice changes over time. Your day could be made by a collection of childhood images that an ARMY just put together. Look down below!
First up, the vivacious oldest member Jin was a carefree youngster who was often playing. He appeared in a shot wearing the first of many suits that would follow. He was already “global gorgeous” with a long face, even bangs, and heart-shaped lips.
Next was the feisty rapper Suga, who was like an angel as a newborn but already had a hip-hop spirit. The attractive guy he would grow up to be was teased in his childhood images. It’s hard to believe that a few years later, such a cute-looking boy will develop into a wonderfully snarky idol!
Although RM is currently the leader of BTS, he was once simply a little youngster without a worry in the world. The adorable youngster who enjoyed playing with action figures grew up to be a multi-millionaire who contributes to the songwriting for BTS.
J-Hope, the lead dancer for the ensemble, was sunshine and rainbows even as a little child. Anyone’s terrible day might become their finest day of the week just by looking at his smile!
Jimin, meanwhile, likewise appeared to be destined for stardom. He was a rising star because of his well-groomed hair and stage attire. Even though he’s only holding a basic microphone in this photo, he would later become one of the most well-known singers in the whole world.
V was undoubtedly a beautiful baby from the beginning. Everyone could immediately see the makings of one of K-most Pop’s iconic images even though he was still a little child. He was the picture of adorable symmetrical features!
Last but not least, even with BTS, Jungkook was always the lovely maknae that he is. He stood out in every picture, just like his bandmates did, giving the impression that he was destined to be a star.
