History[]

2006–2010: Beginning and formation[]

On 6th episode of 슈취타 (Suchwita), the BTS's member SUGA said he and his 6 friends sometimes weren't paid for their performances or giving out flyers. He also mentioned getting old furniture other people threw out for their studio and water leaks.[5] The group was formed by SUGA along with rapper Zico (also known as Woo Ji-ho), another member named Kyungmin and other unknown members. However, D-Town never officially debuted in the K-pop industry as a mainstream group. They primarily focused on underground activities and performances before disbanding.[2]

2010–20??: First release and disbandment[]

On May 17, 2010, D-Town released their first song "518-062", produced by Gloss with rap done by Naksyeon.[4] After this release, the group became disbanding, when its members decided to debut in other recently created groups or as soloists. SUGA, known as under the name "Gloss", trained with 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.
