Did you know that Basick almost became a member of BTS?

The 31-year-old rapper talked about his relations to Big Hit Entertainment and its founder Bang Si Hyuk during an interview on March 31.

Basick said, "Bang Si Hyuk offered me to join a new hip-hop idol group. It was around the time they were preparing to debut BTS."

However, Basick revealed that he rejected the offer. He explained, "I never wanted to become an idol.  At the time, I was taking time off of school and I was also thinking about marrying my girlfriend so it was hard for me to accept the contract."

Basick isn't the only one who was given the offer by Bang Si Hyuk. Basick shared, "Later on, I heard that Beenzino was also given an offer. If Beenzino did it then I probably would have too."

When asked what it would've been like if he did join BTS, Basick answered, "I believe BTS went through a lot of preparation and member changes. I think the current members are ideal."

The BTS of today is the right BTS. If it was meant for the others to be in BTS then they would have joined already...but it wasn't meant to be.  I'm so glad Bang PD started building BTS around Rap Mon....and poor Suga, the kid wanted to be a producer but got dragged to be an'm glad he joined and now can produce for the group. BTS will not be the BTS we see today if none of its current members were in it. I followed BTS for 3 years since debut before finally joining their fandom. It was the best decision I made.

It's crazy how much BTS's concept changed from conception to debut.  Sounds like it was originally gonna be a bunch of older rappers, haha.

Our BTS now is not just ideal, they're perfect and just unchangeable. Every members represent something that every ARMY adores! It can never be BTS if not them!

Johncane acargar Saturday, April 1, 2017

acargar Johncane Saturday, April 1, 2017

Johncane acargar Sunday, April 2, 2017
