When BTS debuted on June 13, 2013, Jin was 20 going on 21, Suga was 20, J-Hope was 19, RM was 18 going on 19, Jimin and V were 17 going on 18, and Jungkook was 15 going on 16. There is a 5 year gap between BTS’s oldest and youngest member, but what if all the members were the same age? Here’s what it would look like!

1. 18 (approximately)

Jin was reportedly 19 years old when he joined Big Hit Entertainment, which would make him 19 or younger when he took this photo with a tourist who fell for his handsomeness.
