All About Min Yoon-gi AKA BTS' Suga
K-pop boy groups are very popular, but there is one group that shiningly steals the spotlight. Bangtan Boys, Bangtan Sonyeondan, Bulletproof Boy Scouts, or simply BTS have successfully introduced themselves as one of the best boy bands of our generation. The group is composed of seven members: RM, Jin, J-Hope, Jimin, V, Jungkook, and of course, the swag master, Suga. Many of the Army Stans have fallen head over heels for him. He is not just a cool rapper; he is very straightforward, honest and uncomplicated.
This article will share some fun facts and trivia about Min Yoon-gi that you probably don't know yet. I'll also cover why the fans love him. If you're not yet a fan, get ready to embrace the swag rapper of BTS. Suga is truly a genius jjang jjang man boong boong.
1. Suga's Profile
Here is some basic info about Suga.
- His real name is Min Yoon-gi.
- He was born on March 9, 1993.
- His hometown is Daegu, South Korea.
- His stage name, Suga, is derived from his pale-looking skin and sweet smile; he is like sugar. He said, "I got the name Suga because my skin is pale, I'm pretty when I smile, and because I'm sweet. (laughs) I choose this name because I want to promote sweetly".
- Apart from his talent in music, rap and songwriting, Suga likes cooking, and his favorite food is meat.
- He has a strong passion for photography. He likes cameras, electronics and accessories.
2. He Is the Real Definition of Swag
According to Webster's dictionary, swag is a slang term for stylish confidence. If that's the case, then no one beats the ultimate swag master of BTS. Whether he is just lounging around or performing, you'll see that Suga is Suga. He can't be anyone else because he is already confident about himself, and he doesn't have to change a thing to make himself appear perfect.
In a 2014 interview, he proudly raised his hand and shouted "Min Yoon-gi" when asked who was the most handsome in the group. He also raised his hand and shouted "Min Suga" when asked who didn't listen to their manager. He also believed that he was the king of bluffing in the group and that honesty and confidence is a major turn-on. He is a really natural guy who doesn't like to worry about anything. His honest and straightforward personality allows him to easily express his thoughts.
He said, "I really like things I like but really dislike things that I don't like, although I normally like lazing around, I'm not lazy on things that I enjoy, I usually confront someone instead of talking about it behind their backs". Now that's real swag!
3. "Min Suga. Genius."
Min Suga. Genius. Those two words should be enough. But 'genius' alone is not enough to describe how awesome, cool and incredible this man is. In the 2016 BTS Festa self-written profiles, our swag master wrote that "super genius" would best describe himself!
Suga has his reasons to claim that he's a genius. In fact, he passionately laid a fierce rap on the track 'Agust D', which brings his mind-blowing talent to the next level with his intense performance. The message behind the song is emotionally captivating as it addresses his issues of depression, social phobia and OCD while feeling homesick since he left his hometown to pursue his dream in the city.
The track shows a totally different artist. He had successfully asserted that there is a new artist under the name 'Agust D,' and this masterpiece is different from the works of Suga from BTS. 'Agust D' was entirely produced by Min Suga himself, and his hard work was paid off with the immediate success of the track as well as the music video. It garnered more than a million views within 12 hours on YouTube.
Going back to the Suga of BTS, he also asserts himself as a genius with his rap, "Min Suga genius jjang jjang man boong boong". This rap became a hot trend, which is why Jimin saved him on his phone as "Min Suga jjang jjang man boong boong".
4. Yoon-gi's Words of Wisdom
If you're a fan of Yoon-gi, then you can not escape from his words of wisdom. Have you realized how life can be so easy if you don't take it seriously? Yoon-gi would say, "Don't take it so hard; it's okay if you lose!"
He has described himself as a super genius, but if there's another word that would describe Yoon-gi, that would be "easy". One thing that fans like about him is his sincere thoughts, which sometimes make us realize how adorable he is. His thinking is so brilliantly uncomplicated, and that makes him appear so brilliantly genius!
But let's admit it, sometimes his words are just impossible to understand.
5. His English Will "Infires" You
The word "infires", which is the mispronunciation of the word "inspired", was coined by Min Suga. This word is used by Army fans to describe Suga's everlasting swag. Have you ever wondered how the word came to be? It came from this conversation.
- RM (to Suga): What inspires you the most?
- Suga: Insfire? Infires?
- Jungkook: Infires man! Yeah!
- Suga: Yeah!
- RM: It's inspired.
- Jungkook: Inspired man! Yeah!
Suga's English is just too cute to handle! Even the golden maknae adores his hyung for being a cutie pie. Isn't he the sweetest-looking eye candy ever?
6. He and Jungkook Are the "Lamb Skewers Duo"
In their 2016 self-written profile, there is one thing in common between Suga and Jungkook, and that is lamb skewers! Suga described himself and JK as the 'lamb skewers duo'. He was the first one to introduce the food to JK, and since then, it has become JK's favorite food. He even asks his hyung to buy him some whenever he is craving it! Among the group, the are the only ones who eat it. JK and Suga often eat lamb skewers together.
However, it seems like these two are more than just a lamb skewers friends. In the BTS Rookie Channel, Suga made the shocking confession that he is the culprit behind Jungkook’s missing black underwear. When the maknae asked his hyung where it went, he didn't tell him the truth that he was wearing it, and he didn’t give it back because it had holes in it. He later revealed that he did this because he wants to dominate JK. He warned his maknae that next time he will definitely steal his underwear and wear it again. Better keep an eye on your underpants, JK!
7. Never Ever Wake Him Up When He's Sleeping
Apart from music, sleep is the most precious thing to Suga. No other member can beat him in sleeping, staying in the same place and lying down - and he knows this himself! He is ranked himself number 1 in lying down and number 7 in moving, and he also said that the longest sleep he's ever had was 20 straight hours. He said, "My specialty is rolling around in bed on our days off. I'm really good at it. It's because I'm lazy". This might be the reason why he said he wanted to be a stone in his next life!
Are you curious as to what will happen if someone wakes him up while sleeping?
8. When He Loses His Swag, He Is Actually a Cutie
We don't have to explain this one. A swag-less Suga is just a cutie. pie Min Yoon-gi is too playful, too hyper, and too cute to handle with his killer aegyo charms. The cutest thing about him is when he pretends not to care when he actually does. He seems like he’s all over the place, but he is quite careful. He has that kind of sugary sweet personality. And even though he seems stubborn and lethargic, he actually wants to be loved, especially by the members. Awww, isn't he the sweetest sugar ever?
9. He Looks Pretty as a Girl
With his pale skin, beautiful legs, sugary sweet smile and cutie pie eyes, there's no reason a female Yoon-gi can't be more beautiful than you. Just taking a look at his female student costume is enough to bring back hope in the whole world. His face is as pretty as a newly-bloomed flower, and his cuteness is overflowing. It can make our hearts explode!
But the swag master will never perish with these girly costumes. About the maid outfit, Suga said, “I really didn’t want to wear the maid outfit, so I was surprised. I can’t understand why fans want to see that. We don’t really have any interest in seeing girls wear boys’ clothes, so why do they like seeing us wear girls’ clothes?”
10. His Smile Is Everything
The most confident expression for our swag master is his simple smile. He is comfortable and confident with his smile, so he is able to express it quickly. For him, his charm is his eye smile, and for us fans, that smile is everything. It shows that there is a cute and sweet Min Yoon-gi who wants to be loved inside the cool, swag, lethargic and sassy Suga. In fact, he is a person who is not hard to understand. Happiness for him is doing what he wants to do, eat the food he wants to eat, listen to the music he wants to hear, and sing the songs he wants to sing. If he doesn't like a certain thing, he is always blunt about it. But when he likes something, he is passionate about it.
A wonderful message was given by BTS' Bang Shihyuk PD: “To Suga, rebel, old and young genius, because of you BTS can be BTS. Thanks for your talent and keep it that way".
Bonus: "I Will Sue You Min Yoongi!"
Of course, this can't end without Suga's famous fan who bravely shouted that she will sue Min Yoon-gi. Because she can't take Yoon-gi's handsomeness, sexiness, hotness and cuteness, she is ready to report him for being a dangerous man! However, it was later revealed that the super fan was married, and she was sorry to her Yoongi-oppa for not leaving her ring finger empty for him. We wish her a happy married life, and her efforts to love and support Yoon-gi will never be wasted.
Did you have fun with the facts about Suga? If yes, then here's a finger heart from our cute Yoon-gi to you!

Nico on August 17, 2020:
now I want to tell you something.
yesterday I was watching Seegasm's videos on my cellphone and I had put on YouTube TV a video called "Min Yoongi voice for sleep 1 hour"
and okay, I always sleep with those kind of videos
but I really love Seegasm's videos and I had never stopped them for someone or something just 'cause nobody for me is important as him. But when yesterday Yoongi laughed in the video I immediately stopped Seegasm's videos just to hear Yoongi laugh again. I really love Yoongi and now I realized that there's only one person who's more important than Seegasm for me and he's Min Suga Genius

Riz on June 29, 2019:
Just to add actually his name is derived from his position of being a Shooting Guard on their basketball team. So to put it short Shoo sounds "Su" and Gua is "Ga" so they combined it and its Suga (pronounced as Shooga) all the best. :)
Alianna13 on June 03, 2019:
Suga has always been my bias since day one !he is cute and swag and I love it!
lenmnaBTS on April 05, 2019:

LunaTheGalaxy on December 21, 2018:
I completely agree that Suga is amazing! He’s my bias and just adds so much to BTS that BTS wouldn’t be the same without him as like all the other members
Jelina214 on December 12, 2018:
honestly when i first become an ARMY, being the immature fan who's new to KPOP,... i obviously have a bias and only rank the members by my first impression.... and please don't get triggered but I rank Suga last because in my opinion he is not as attractive as other members but,......... when I started getting to know more about kpop and BTS members, Suga suddenly became the 6th, then 5th, 4th...2nd and then 1st on the list in a span of a week!! but now after being a Fan for morethan 2 yrs ... i can say that the list is not necessary anymore... i get bias wrecked all the time. (sorry for my english, not my mother tongue)
Jaylen Alexis McCown on November 25, 2018:

Nana on August 28, 2018:
Idk but I'm pretty sure thé fact about how he got his stage name is false... First I cannot picture Yoongi saying this lol and second if I'm not mistaken Suga is from the position he had when he played basketball
Nara on August 20, 2018:
When i see his picture,i think he is cute...but now i don ' t why i'm just thinking about him when it goes to exam week.
Leah on July 18, 2018:
I'll ask this too, how could he be a bias wrecker when he is my bias?
Anna on May 25, 2018:
Lol how can he be my bias breaker when he is my ultimate bias...#infiresman
Kookie on April 19, 2018:
He is not my bias breaker... He was my bias to begin with. The only thing he broke is my heart!!
Moomin on April 17, 2018:
I used to have Jungkook as my forever main bias, but 2 years later it was soon ruined by the one and only, V. Followed by Jimin and Jin (they were both in the same level, omg my hearteu) then J-Hope and RM. Since then, I really adore how cute Yoongi is, despite him being so straightforward all the time. I also adore how good he is at rapping, and that he has a special place in my heart (so cheesy) he's actually my top 2, idk which the top 1 is. But Suga will be forever my bias wrecker.
Levi Addict on April 16, 2018:
u mean...1000000 reasons to love BTS' Suga
Sndndkdmfn on March 13, 2018:
HE IS A FREAKING BIAS BREAKER. IS THAT EVEN A QUESTION?? I USED TO BE SO SMITTEN BY JIN AND JUNGKOOK AND THEN I SAW SUGA AND I FREAKING COLLAPSED, MELTED, EXPLODED BECAUSE I CANT DEAL! SORRY IF YOU THINK IM OVER EXAGGERATING BUT THESE ARE MY TRUE FEELINGS. BYE.
