Rap Monster, who leads South Korea's popular boy band BTS, changed his stage name to "RM", saying the new name would match the music he wants to present.

"I will change my stage name to RM because I think it suits the music I pursue," the 23-year-old said in a post uploaded to the group's fan community. The old name was adopted during his days as a trainee.

BTS has been invited to the 2017 American Music Awards to be held in Los Angeles on November 19. During their U.S. trip, the boys will appear in popular TV talks shows such as "The Late Late Show with James Corden" and "Ellen DeGeneres Show".
