Rap Monster birthday BTS

Namjoon, widely known as Rap Monster (RM), is celebrating his 27th birthday today as BTS Army has flooded the star with best wishes and prayers on his big day.

The famed rapper from South Korea was the first one to be selected into the seven-member group and has led them since. Namjoon was originated with the stage name Rap Monster in 2017, 5 years after he had started his career.

#HappyBirthdayNamjoon is trending all over Twitter as his lovers and the fanbase is extending sweet and heartfelt wishes for him.

Check out how the BTS Army is reacting:

Earlier in 2017, through a statement, Namjoon said that he was formally changing his name to RM as ‘Rap Monster’ did not align with the music he wanted to create.

In a letter posted in BTS’ official fan cafe, RM wrote, “I’ve been promoting under the name Rap Monster for about five years, since the end of 2012. It was a stage name that I naturally came to be called among our company family members and my members, after a line in a song I’d made as a trainee, and I think I became very fond of it. But once I started promoting, the name ‘BTS’s Rap Monster’ was a bit long, and I’ve become keenly aware of the fact that it’s become different from [what I want] to put at the front of the music I’ve made for the past five years, and the music I want to share in the future.”

At some point, I started introducing myself as Rapmon or RM, rather than the full name Rap Monster. So I’d like to change the name I use for promotions to ‘RM,’ which I think is more in accordance with the music I’m aiming for and also has a wider spectrum. Since I’ve already released some music and mixtapes as RM, I think that some fans will have already guessed this. I thought about this carefully for a long while, because I want to make music for a long time in the future with an unrestricted and open mind and view,” he added.

The seven-member BTS group consists of RM, V, Suga, J-Hope, Jungkook, Park Ji-min and Jin.
