Pdogg, who designed BTS alongside Bang Si-hyuk, founder of Big Hit Entertainment, shared stories of how the "BTS project" began in a 2013 interview.

Would BTS have been better off with these members?

Pdogg recalled "I heard RM singing in 2010, and he was good. I discussed it with Si-hyuk and our BTS project began."
 
RM was the first member to be picked for project BTS, and members Suga and J-Hope were added after auditioning.

What's interesting is before BTS made their official debut, singers/rappers Iron, Supreme Boi, 11EVN, and Kidoh were part of the "BTS project."

Pdogg, while refraining from mentioning exact names, revealed "BTS was initially supposed to be a hip-hop group. As the group's identity changed from hip-hop to idol, some members couldn't handle the singing and performances, hence the change."

Some other singers/rappers were offered to join BTS as well. Rapper Basick revealed that BigHit Entertainment offered him to take a part in its newest hip-hop idol group.
