Only 1 BTS Member Would Rather Read a Book Than Watch a Movie

Some people love books, others think they’re “sleeping pills.” For one member of BTS, reading is more enjoyable than watching a movie. Here’s what the BTS members said about some of their favorite activities, flavors, and foods.

These performers collaborate when it comes to music

BTS is known for their elaborate dancing and pitch-perfect vocals. They’ve also broken a few records, becoming the first K-pop group to announce an award and perform at the Grammy Awards. 

Their “Dynamite” music video became the YouTube video with the most views within 24 hours, earning over 100 million plays. Some of their music videos even hold over a billion views on the same platform. 

Music and dancing aside, these performers are pretty unique. That includes one of the rappers in the group, Suga, who sometimes goes by his second stage name, Agust D.

Suga shared that he prefers books to movies

For one video with SiriusXM, the BTS members had to choose between two things. When they had to choose between a tropical island and hiking in the woods, RM was the only one who picked the hiking option. However, when to came to choosing between chocolate or vanilla, these members were pretty split.

When it came to picking between reading a book or watching a movie, though, six out of the seven members chose the movie option. Suga was the only member who said he prefers books, causing a few of the other members to make jokes.

“Book equals makes me sleepy,” J-Hope said, according to a translation on the video. Jungkook added, “book is melatonin.”

That doesn’t mean that Suga doesn’t watch movies, though. On a few different occasions, this performer shared his recommendations with fans. That includes the Academy Award-winning film Parasite. According to IMDb, Tazza: The High Rollers, a comedy/crime flick is a favorite movie of this performer.

Suga is one of the rappers in BTS

This rapper is sometimes referred to as the “Grandpa” of the group for a reason. For one interview, some fans noticed that Suga was dozing off. During a separate interview, the K-pop group was asked what three words best describe them. For Suga, the three words he chose were “eat, sleep, and work.” 

When it comes to his solo music, though, this artist has an opportunity to show a new side of himself. Suga recently released a new mixtape as his alter-ego, Agust D, which is available on streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music. 

The “Dynamite” music video is now available on YouTube. Music by BTS, including their recently released album, Map of the Soul: 7, is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, and most major platforms.
