BTS (Bangtan Boys): SUGA

Suga (슈가)

Min Yoon Gi (민윤기)

Lead Rapper

March 9, 1993

Min Yoon-gi (민윤기), better known by his stage names SUGA (슈가) and Agust D is a South Korean rapper-songwriter and record producer under Big Hit Music. He is a rapper of BTS, also he is notable for his large input in songwriting and is the major music producer between the members.

As a solo artist, he has released two mixtapes: Agust D in 2016 and D-2 in 2020. In 2018, Suga was promoted to full member of the Korea Music Copyright Association.

The stage name SUGA (슈가) is derived from the first syllables of the term shooting guard (슈팅 가드), the position he played in basketball as a student. It was suggested to him because he was pale and looked like he would be very sweet, like sugar. He adopted the alias Agust D in 2016 for his mixtape, which is derived from the initials DT, short for his birthplace, Daegu Town, and “SUGA” spelled backward.

SUGA is responsible for writing, composing, arranging, mixing, and mastering his material. Over 100 registered songs are credited to him by the Korea Music Copyright Association. He is a pianist, and produces hiphop and R&B music. His lyrics involve themes that are “full of dreams and hope,” conceived with the intent of his music becoming “many people’s strength.” He cites Stony Skunk and Epik High as his inspirations to pursue hiph op music. Particularly, he credits the former’s reggae-hiph op hybrid album Ragga Muffin (2005) and its title track for igniting his interest in the genre
