BTS’ RM’s father is an SK Telecom employee while his mother is a property agent.
Initially, it was the parents of BTS’ RM who did not agree with their son having a career in music, especially his mother. It’s no surprise to BTS’ fans (ARMY) that the leader of the hitmaker “Dynamite” is a genius.

In one interview, BTS’ RM shared his conversation with his mother regarding his decision to become a K-pop idol. After a long discussion about his career path, his mother finally allowed him to become an idol.
BTS’ RM shared, “If you make a comparison, my score can only rank 5000 in South Korea. When it comes to the way of life, I’d rather be a boy who is successful with work than grades. So I asked my mother if she would prefer her son to be number one in the things he likes, or be someone who could only be in the 5000th place. It was that conversation that made my mother allow me to pursue my dream,” he said.
BTS’ RM’s Dog: Rap Mon
Before changing his stage name to BTS’ RM, Kim Nam-joon was once known as Rap Monster, which is abbreviated as Rapmon. Apparently, his short name is the same as the name of his pet, Rapmon.
