V: “He really has a lot of knowledge. He’s quite cool on stage. Cool and amazing. No answer to him being lethargic.”
Jeongguk: “He’s like a grandpa. But his passion towards music is overflooding. He also has a lot of knowledge. But he’s still a grandpa.”
Rap Monster: “Lingers on things more than you would think. He’s really timid once you get to know him. Full of random information. Grandpa. Although he seems cool – never… no no… Wants to be loved. Likes music. Has passion and stubbornness. Says what he wants to and can say everything well in front. Has style.”

About the author



  • DearRidiculous

    I realized were a lot alike. Definitely a bias wrecker

  • Jimin’sbias

    Jimin is my bias but suga seducing me(lol)

  • • AL •

    He’s my ultimate bias :3 I’ve always felt like I could relate to Suga the most out of BTS and reading these things made me realize that he’s even more relatable than I thought before.

  • Ammsdnx
  • KProfiles

    Can you provide the image in a bigger size? (Since all the rest of the members have bigger size images on their individual profile page) 🙂

  • Van Hohenheim

    ohhh 3x.. “When he has a problem he talks to Rap Monster because their ages are similar and also have a lot of things in common.” ~maybe you wrongly list it here ^^

  • Ammsdnx
  • KProfiles

    Ok, the profile pic has been replaced! Thanks! 🙂

  • TitorTales

    Suga is love <3

  • Sylvia Vue

    – Suga’s ideal type is a girl who likes music, especially hip-hop.

    What kind of girl doesn’t like music? I like hip-hop, not a HUGE fan, but I like it. But then again I’m probably out of his age range…(is 15)

  • sugalover_bias

    He also likes girls that has fancy headphones, he doesn’t really care about looks. He also wants a girl that can be very active when he wants to and very silent when he wants to. A girl that will always be by his side. Don’t expect him to bring you everywhere around the world because he is working all day and night literally. When you wake up in the middle of your sleep, you may not see you sleeping by your side, because he is still working with his stuff at 3am

  • sugalover_bias

    So if you like it to be all romantic for your whole life, don’t expect yhat if you want to be with Suga 😉

  • KProfiles

    Thanks for adding additional info, we gave you credits in the post. 🙂

  • Sugas_swaeg

    When he wore a pink tshirt for the spring day MV he it was his first time to wear pink because most of his clothes are black and white 🙂

  • SugaIsMyBias

    I love Suga so much. He’s been my bias since day one.

  • Jojo

    When he works separately from his members, his stage name is Agust D

  • ealaine laure

    He’s actually a night owl. He struggles sleeping from 12mn till 5am. 🙁

  • ealaine laure

    Can you make this his profile picture ? I just love him here <3 <3 <3 https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b823489ae173509422c47e402462838f3583c1ea296093e09624c02986ae88dd.jpg

  • JiminsLegalWife

    He really loves kumamon 😍😍

    Ps This is just a suggestion

  • KProfiles

    Thanks for the suggestion, it would be better to be a front picture, if possible. Some visitors complained before that they can’t see well the face… 🙁

  • KProfiles

    Thanks for the comment! 🙂

  • that one with the mullet

    Find it interesting this is another site that leaves out Suga’s bisexuality..
    Literally no idols, actors, muscians, etc. come out in S.Korea due to the homophobia
    so him stating his sexuality and alluding to it in interviews and songs is a pretty damn big deal.

  • Tiffany

    I know right? It’s so cute too❤️❤️

  • Lucia

    They don’t really put things on their that’s not confirmed or fact. He only implies and even then sometimes its still very debatable with some people. And there was an actor, he runs a restaurant right now his name is Hong Sukcheon he still does appearances in variety shows and stuff.

  • ipek

    his height is 174 cm

  • legitpotato

    Suga said in a old log that if he had another dream for his future that he would become a DJ on a radio show.

  • Melanie Lopez

    I got Suga!! I’m so happy ..

  • Paige Buchanan

    Idk personally I’d think that Seokjin and Namjoon are the parents, and Yoongi and Hoseok are more like grandparents. Plus the members and himself have all referred to him as a grandpa because he sleeps all the time and can be cranky.

  • KProfiles

    Thanks for the comment! 🙂

  • KProfiles

    Thanks for the comment and sorry for the late reply, it’s so hard to notice all the comments on all the profiles. XD

  • KProfiles

    Thanks for the comment! 🙂

  • legitpotato

    It’s fine xD

  • Wendy Marvell

    can you make this his profile picture? this is one of my faaavvvvvorite pics of him https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/df667a06035e38d4d8356d970a76c0c52ff4815c9ee3198501ba76ee7589f495.jpg

  • JiYoon

    Suga and Min Kyun Hoon are relatives

  • kika

    they aren’t really relatives just have the same family name, so they belong to the same “clan” – Min.
    in Korea there are considered a few clans Min, Park, Lee, etc. and all the current people with the same family name are considered to came from the same ancestors. a few years ago there was even a law who interdicted the people with the same family name to get married because they came from the same ancestors. but that law was abolish because after so many generations they aren’t really considered relatives anymore

  • McKenzie Smith

    I hope I can share this information on amino about Suga. If it’s not okay, I will delete. Thank you 😄

  • KProfiles

    We don’t see any link to this page or proper credits there. We already stated that copy-paste it was not allowed. If you take parts of the info from our page please give proper credits.
    We will soon start taking legal action against those who just steal the content from Kprofiles as this has been happening a lot lately.

  • McKenzie Smith

    I have given you credits for this. But again, I will delete if I need to

  • KProfiles

    At first you didn’t give credits at all
    Now you added “(Credits to the people who have wrote this about Yoongi)” but did you mention the site where you got the info from? No. Did you put a link to this page from where you just copy-pasted the information from (as we clearly specified in the post) ? No.
    We didn’t think you had bad intentions, but please understand us too. There’s a lot of work until a profile is done and a lot of people contribute. It’s always easy to just copy-paste the content, but those who do that should at least give proper credits (as we specified in the post) – meaning to put a link to this page where the content was copied from.
    We have to stand up for our authors, and respect their work, so yeah, I’m sorry, but we plan to take legal action against those who don’t show any respect and just steal the material without proper credits.
    Thanks for understanding.

  • McKenzie Smith

    Dammit! It didn’t update. It should be there now. I’m sorry if I’m being a hassle

  • KProfiles

    Now you put some numbers in front of each line, but the info is still copied from here and you still didn’t give proper credits. 🙂

  • Eunlien

    1. The fiirst ever album that Yoongi bought was Eminem.

  • Maya Popp

    I fit most of his description of his type though I am loud and I enjoy dancing. (And I am vegetarian but I can cook so I guess I can learn to cook meat?)

  • Anupama Pant

    Suga has a dog named Min Holli, who he absolutely adores.

  • KProfiles

    Thank you for the additional info. 🙂

  • kimiko

    “He’s bad at Japanese and English” lol that’s not entirely true. In my opinion, and not just because he’s my UB, he’s the one who understands English better than other members (excluding Rapmon). See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvVaz-JpyWI

  • Helen Beatriz

    His ideal type is also a girl who can eats a lot. Also a girl who seems to be cold but can actually share affection.

  • qwertasdfgzxcvb

    he is friends with monsta x kihyun

  • Kpop’ s Jams

    he Is labeled as a producer

  • tsungari

    you wrote 촣아요 instead of 좋아요

  • qwertasdfgzxcvb

    He is the reason why jin got his sugar gliders

  • julia | ia

    01. he’s met and became friends with Monsta X’s Kihyun since predebut. it is mentoned that there was once a time where kihyun and him met up and talked for five hours on various topics (mostly music). he is also quite close with Super Junior’s Heechul, Tablo, and Vixx’s Hongbin.

    02. he also got his stage name “suga” from his position in basketball where he played as shooting guard, thus the name came from the first few parts of those words.

  • Pooja

    slightly [80%] a match for his “ideal type”
    *grins like an idiot*

  • Pooja

    A to the G to the U to the STD
    I’m d boy because I’m from D


  • Student Bailey Marudas

    “The ranking in BTS that he write: Jin = Suga > Rapmon > J-Hope > Jeongguk > V »»»»»»»»» Jimin. (Profile written by Suga)” am I the only one kinda confused what he means, like why does jimin have so many >>> can someone please explain because I’m stupid

  • Weki

    I think he just wanted to tease Jimin with so many >>> :)))

  • h-an

    “Suga” stands for shooting guard, like the position he plays in basketball. “Syuting gardeu” shooting guard in hangul -> “syuga” the way his stage name is spelled in hangul -> suga

  • Crystal

    right? i cant say anything about japanese but hes definitely not bad at english. hes got a decent understanding and his pronunciation is really good too.

  • Tierney Wheeler

    Suga was in a car accident and hurt his shoulder while working as a delivery boy and delivering a meal on a bike.(he mentions this in Burn The Stage ep. 3)

  • KProfiles

    Thank you for the info and for providing the source, it’s really appreciated! 🙂

  • Saseko

    Suga aka Agust D mixtape? that he wrote and produced himself. And there is also no mention that he knows how to play the piano.
    He was a underground rapper and was in a group called D-Town.

  • 하진

    before he will arrive Daegu, he’s a famous composer in Daegu, And he’s parents didn’t support him to he’s dream to be a famous composer it came when back in the days that Yoongi keeps composing songs rather than studying, so he’s parents took he’s songs and ruined it, GOSH IM TEARING UP

  • Roberto Lopez

    I heard somewhere that in a Japanese interview he said that gender didn’t matter regarding his ideal type

  • Mary Denn Obligado

    his personality is like that of dahyun of twice

  • Samantha

    When he was an underground rapper he went by gloss

  • Samantha

    When he was an underground rapper he was known as gloss cuz that’s the English translation of yoongi

  • KProfiles

    Thanks for the info, it’s much appreciated! 🙂

  • Coffee With Suga

    He is smitten by ARMYs

  • LoveMinYoongi♡

    SUGA understands English, but he doesn’t speak the language well, that’s why you don’t hear him speak in a lot of interviews. SUGA, RM, and JHOPE are heavily involved in the making of BTS albums.

  • Pisces

    i just wanted to know his favorite color………….

  • farida Abdulghani

    I like his personality,because is same with mine,even his ideal type same as mine just different because I’m a women

Bruh…im bouta break a wall or something he is the most handsomest (i know its not a word deal with it) man i have ever seen he is BEAUTIFUL and just amazing it broke my heart to know he thinks hes ugly like BISH LOOK A MAH FACE IM PURE UGLY

  • kkaepjjang suga

    He also has a habit of putting the blanket over his head while sleeping and the members always pull it down for him

  • Transformers

    Suga=Cool. We have similarities, but we aren’t all the same. He loves to sleep. I like to sleep, but I’m more of an earlier bird so…I keep myself locked up in my room and play video games, but I also like quiet times also. But I also love to yell really loud because it makes me feel better(and I have too much energy) I hate being in a place were there are a lot of people. Yea. I just like Suga cuz he is chill.

  • Miyuki Iwata

    You didn’t mention that he wants to reincarnate into a rock in his next life.

  • Sak Eri

    I knew almost all of the information.
    . Obsession problems.

  • Shay

    Suga loves to pull pranks

  • Shiii

    Some Suga facts!
    – Yeontan (one of V’s dogs) peed on Suga’s beanie and he is no longer able to wear it.
    – Suga feels that fans who choose him as their bias are special because he doesn’t think he’s particularly talented or good looking (FALSE Min Yoongi you are both).
    – Yoongi’s MBTI is INFP (Introvertive, Intuitive, Feeling and Perception).
    – If he could give himself a new stage name it would be ‘Min Yoongi’ because he would like to promote himself with his real name.
    – Yoongi once took off a bit of make up at a fansign after a fan said she finds his moles pretty.
    – Yoongi said he can’t focus when he drinks and hence doesn’t try to write songs when he drinks.
    – Yoongi has said that he wants to collaborate with Camilla Cabello.
    – Yoongi has said he has never raised his voice at anyone and that he can’t seem to raise his voice at anyone.

  • autumn

    i lovee lil meow meow

  • Wonpil

    Suga is not straight, he stated it In Cypher pt. 3 when he was rapping and also in an interview…

  • realdefmonie

    Same like me

  • GYooumbeRocks

    dud I shost knowrest that suga has the same personality and likes and hobbys as me.

  • It was actually mistranslated, he said that it wasn’t limited to looks not gender. As for songs, who knows? We’ll support Yoongi no matter what

  • Brielle Rose-Hendricks

    LOL XD

  • Carmina Gabriela

    He is,he said that in an interview

  • Levi’s girl

    Please don’t said misinformation. He doesn’t confirm anything. He just that that love is not limited to genders. We’d support him always but spreading misinformation abt someone’s sexuality is wrong.

  • Levi’s girl

    He is not my ult bias but I love him so much💜💜 Also, Yoonjin is one of my fav ships!

  • luvbts

    Its so sad that he thinks he’s ugly!!!! He’s actually super adorable!!

  • julie park
  • KProfiles

    Thank you for the update, it’s much appreciated! 🙂

  • suga is my kitten

    he went to a english academy! with a txt member!

  • Abraham Marin

    ….but we ended knowing everything and i don’t regret it xD

  • Kazumi Hatake

    really? where did you get that from?

  • Joy Siagian

    yes, an english academy in daegu (i guess) with Beomgyu from TXT

  • lil cuty

    Cypher pt 3, SUGA’s part:

    as you know my voice will turn you on, Wether it’s a guy or girl, my tongue will make you come

    That’s not coming out as non-straight, not at all. Im so late but I had nothing to do, so… Please dont say misinformation like that, you state it as if its a BIG KNOWN fact, when truly its just totally wrongly taken.
    (A straight guy can be turned on by Yoongi’s voice just like any woman would)
    (And the interview was mistranslated, he only stated it’s not limited to looks, not gender)

  • Jisoo Visual

    Suga isn’t bad at english,he is super fluent in english…BTW Suga is the second good in english in BTS.

  • mhm

    where did y’all get that he’s bad at english from? maybe he’s stated that but it’s clearly not true. he works hard, he studied at an academy. he’s just shy but don’t interpret him any less, we’ve all gotten hints of his fluency many times namjoon could probably even admit it lol
