Hello and welcome to everyone who loves BTS...so, literally everyone here, right? If RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook have stolen your heart, first of all, get in line. Second of all, enjoy these little-known facts about your faves.

1. Jimin is a Libra.

In case you care, which you definitely do. This is good news for everyone except Cancers and Capricorns who aren't compatible with Libras, according to the stars, so...thank u, next.

2. RM learned English by watching Friends.

Which is clearly all the proof we need to know for sure that listening to the musings of Chandler Bing totally counts as education. Take that, mom.

3. V is Ambidextrous.

Which means he can write with both his left and right hands. Unlike the rest of us mere mortals who foolishly can only use one hand.

4. RM's initials stand for "Rap Monster."

If you already knew this one, don't @ me. His real name is Kim Nam Joon.

5. RM is a huge reading nerd.

Which means you should probably be one, too. *stares woefully at stack of books on nightstand, puts on Netflix instead*

6. J-Hope's dad is a literature teacher.

Speaking of reading! #TheMoreYouKnow

7. Jimin's favorite number is 3.

Don't you dare tell me this isn't an interesting fact. ALL BTS FACTS ARE INTERESTING, OKAY?!

8. If Suga wasn't in BTS, he'd still be making music (don't worry).

In fact, once upon a time, he said, "If I wasn't a rapper, I would probably be a composer because I love music so much."

9. Jungkook is low-key afraid of microwaves.

Apparently, he thinks they could explode at any given moment, which...fair. The microwaves are bound to rise up against us at some point.

10. J-Hope is the only member of BTS who doesn't have pierced ears.

This is because he wants to "keep the purity of them." We must protect J-Hope's earlobes at all costs.

11. Jimin has a scar above his right eye.

Granted, it's teeny-tiny and barely perceptible. But real ones know.

12. Speaking of scars, Jungkook has one on his left cheek.

It's from fighting with his brother over using the computer. Relatable to those of us who grew up in a family with two kids and one screen.

13. Suga used to go by the name "Gloss." 

BTS's most lovable rapper (his given name is Min Yoon Gi) went by Gloss in the underground rap scene before changing over to Suga.

14. Jimin is one of the only BTS members who uses his real name.

But fun fact: He was almost given the stage name "Baby G" before opting out. Kinda love it, TBH.

15. Did you know V plays the saxophone? 

And he's, like, extremely good? Well, now ya do.

16. The band always went by a different name.

It's hard to imagine calling BTS anything other than, well, BTS, but they were *this* close to going by Big Kidz (um, no, absolutely not) and Young Nation.

17. Jungkook apparently rakes the longest time in the bathroom. 

So, um, okay. File this under: things you really never needed to know.

Same, Jimin. Same.

19. BTS used to live in one room together. 

This was back in ye olden days before they were mega-stars, of course. They still spend a ton of time together. "Everyone gathers together," RM said. "It's like an agora in ancient Greece: We gather and we ask: 'What happened?'"

With a pair of kitchen scissors, no less, and filmed the entire thing in the mirror with his iPhone (which, yes, had a Givenchy case).

I wish I could act like this is an impressive feat I am shocked by, but let's be real: I've done this.

So that he could go visit his family—and if that isn't the sweetest, most pure thing in the world, I don't know what is.

30. RM and Halsey have a secret handshake.

And, yes, you should be jealous. 

31. Behold, Halsey and RM's secret handshake (You. Are. Very. Welcome.).

32. V chews while he sleeps.

Well, maybe he's just grinding his teeth. It's unclear. But, same, due to never not thinking about food.

33. Fans of BTS call themselves "The ARMY."

Which iconically stands for "Adorable Representative M.C. for Youth." But you already knew this, right?

V might be the professional actor in the group, but please be advised that Jin can cry on cue. Genuinely jealous of that life skill.

Jimin confirmed this, saying they've "reached the point where we can communicate wordlessly, basically just by watching each other and reading the expressions."

He studied at the Busan High School of Arts before being unveiled as a member of BTS, and honestly, his skills are unparalleled.
