Min Yoon-gi (Hangul민윤기; born March 9, 1993), better known by his stage names Suga and Agust D, is a South Korean rapper, songwriter, and record producer. Managed under Big Hit Entertainment, he debuted as a member of the South Korean pop idol group BTS in 2013. In 2016, he released his first solo mixtape Agust D. Suga has over 62 songs attributed to him by the Korea Music Copyright Association as a songwriter and producer, including Suran's "Wine", which won best Soul/R&B track of the year at the 2017 Melon Music Awards.

Life and career

1993–2010: Early life

Min Yoon-gi was born on March 9, 1993, in Daegu, South Korea.[1] The younger of two sons, he attended Taejeon Elementary School, Gwaneum Middle School, and Apgujeong High School.[2] By the age of 13, he began to write music lyrics and learned about MIDI. He worked a part-time job at a record studio by the age of 17. From then on he began composing and arranging music, rapping, and performing.[1] Prior to being signed, he was active under the name Gloss as an underground rapper.[3] As part of the hip hop crew D-Town in 2010, he released a song titled "518-062" in commemoration of the Gwangju Uprising.[4]

BTS

The stage name Suga (슈가) is derived from the first syllables of the term shooting guard (슈팅 가드), the position he played in basketball as a student.[5] Originally joining the company as a music producer,[6] Suga trained under Big Hit Entertainment for three years alongside members J-Hope and RM. He made his debut as a member of BTS on Mnet's M Countdown with the track "No More Dream" from their debut single album 2 Cool 4 Skool.[7] He has produced and written lyrics for a variety of tracks on all of BTS' albums.

Solo work

Suga adopted the alias Agust D in 2016, which is derived from the initials "DT", short for his birth place "Daegu Town", and "Suga" spelled backwards.[1] He released a free self-titled mixtape via SoundCloud on August 15.[8] He decided against releasing the project as a commercial studio album, describing it as the "feeling of being trapped in some sort of framework."[1] On the record, he discussed matters such as his struggles with depression and social phobia.[9] Fuse TV rated it as one of the top twenty mixtapes of 2016.[10]

In 2017, Suga composed the song "Wine" for singer Suran, whom he had previously worked with for a single on his mixtape.[11] The record peaked at number two on the Gaon Digital Chart and won best Soul/R&B track of the year at the Melon Music Awards on December 2, 2017.[12] Suga also received the "Hot Trend Award" for his work on the track.[13]

Suga re-released his mixtape for digital purchase and streaming in February 2018.[14] The success of the reissue placed it at number three on Billboard's World Albums Chart, number five on the Heatseekers Albums chart, and number 74 on the Top Album Sales chart. It also caused Suga's solo alias, Agust D, to reach number 46 on the Emerging Artists chart for the week of March 3.[15]

Personal beliefs and philanthropy

Suga has spoken openly about mental health and equality for the LGBTQ+ community.[16] In 2014, Suga made a promise to buy his fans meat should he find success as a musical artist. Four years later, on his 25th birthday, he donated beef to 39 orphanages as "Army", the name of BTS' fanbase.[17]

Musicianship

Suga is responsible for writing, composing and arranging, as well as mixing and mastering his material.[1] He has over sixty registered songs accredited to his name with the Korea Music Copyright Association,[18] is a pianist, and produces hip hop and R&B music.[1][19] The foundation of his lyrics involve themes that are "full of dreams and hope," conceived with the intent of his music becoming "many people's strength."[20] He cites Stony Skunk and Epik High as his inspirations to pursue hip hop music. Particularly, he credits the former's reggae-hip-hop hybrid album Ragga Muffin (2005) and its title track for igniting his interest in the genre, calling it "completely different" from mainstream music.[21]

Jeff Benjamin of Fuse reviewed the K-Pop star's mixtape, stating it "showcases the star's ear for hot productions, hardcore rap style, and how he can make his vulnerabilities a strength."[22]

In January 2018, Suga was promoted to full member of the Korea Music Copyright Association.[23]
