BTS made a guest appearance on 'Idol Party' on March 7, where MC Kim Jun Ho asked, "What does BTS mean?" 


Member j-hope responded, "I explained it many times when we first debuted. It conveys a rather deep meaning with the idea of protecting music from all the oppression and division flying toward us, like 10-20 bullets."


MC Kim Shin Young followed up with a question, "Who came up with the name?" The boys replied, "Our CEO."  She then went on, "How did you feel when you first heard that name?" Jimin commented, "The name will probably change?" causing the audience to laugh.


Hearing this, MC Leeteuk jumped in, "I know that feeling. I also didn't like the name 'Super Junior.' Eunhyuk and I had a different name in mind. Our team was called 'Prince' and our fanclub, 'Princess.'"


You can also watch BTS perform "Spring Day" on the show above!

LOL. Video clip is RapMon explaining the concept for Spring Day and then the hosts make a joke about the title, and Suga replies "But it's still Mar-- er February." And they don't think his serious answer is funny. Then they ask to see a bit of the dance. ... Love how AKP has clips that don't show the content that they say they contain.

Lmao. My friend told me that too! That Bangtan is a little town in Korea and the boys are from that area thus they named themselves the Bangtan Boys. XD. Liar. I think the name Bangtan alone is a good enough name. Bangtan Sonyeodan is just too long for my foreign tongue. Lol. And I honestly like their name. It's meaningful, not cheesy and it's manly. =) Just right.

Prince and Princess wouldve been very sweet, tbh. But ELF is already the sweetest fandom name so i wont complain 🙂

that was also my first reaction, Prince & Princess is a sweet combination but then I thought of the possible fanboys and suddenly I'm glad they settled with ELF.. XD
