Nov 14, 2017
K-pop sensation boy group BTS' leader Rap Monster officially changed his stage name to RM.
On November 13, Rap Monster announced via his fan community that he will change his stage name from Rap Monster to RM from now on.
RM said, "My stage name 'Rap Monster' was created by my management agency's crews and members getting it from one line from the music and I feel so attached to it. But after working with my stage name for 5 years, I've realized that its length is too long, and doesn't go well with my future works."
He continued, "From now on, I would like to use 'RM' instead of 'Rap Monster' from now on, as it fits better with my intended music style."
He said, "It might be a little awkward to call my new stage name, but hope you welcome it as I contemplated for a long time."
Meanwhile, BTS is set to perform at '2017 American Music Awards' in Los Angeles, California on November 19.
During their trip to the stateside, they will also appear on popular American talk shows including 'The Late Late Show with James Corden', 'Jimmy Kimmel Live', and 'The Ellen DeGenres Show'.
