If there’s anyone who knows which Hogwarts houses BTS‘s members belong in, it’s BTS’s leader, RM.
At a 2017 fan sign, an ARMY gave RM a post-it note with each Harry Potter house written on it then asked him to sort the members. According to RM, he and Jin belong to Gryffindor, J-Hope and V belong to Hufflepuff, Jungkook belongs to Ravenclaw, and Jimin and Suga are both Slytherins.
Many ARMYs have accepted RM’s sorting as canon and, according to this recent radio interview, so does Jin!

While there may be specific reasons for RM’s sorting, fans have come up with their own speculations, based on the members’ personalities and the house’s qualities.
Gryffindors are known for their courage, daring, nerve, and chivalry. More often than not, they are very extroverted, like Jin…
…and are natural leaders, like RM.
Hufflepuffs are known to be hard-working and honest. This house also values dedication, patience, and loyalty, and they easily become friends with everyone they meet.
Like V and J-Hope, Hufflepuffs are accepting of everyone. They love their loved ones deeply and go out of their way to make people feel comfortable.
Jungkook is BTS’s most fearless member, and one of its most mischievous, so it may be surprising to see him in Ravenclaw instead of Gryffindor or Slytherin. That said, he isn’t out of place in the Ravenclaw house. Ravenclaw prizes learning, wisdom, wit, and intellect, and its students tend to be some of Hogwarts’ most talented.
Jungkook is witty, talented, and always eager to add more skills to his Golden Maknae repertoire.
Students who get sorted into the Slytherin house are ambitious, clever, cunning, and driven by the desire to succeed. Out of all the houses, they are the most methodical and weigh all possible outcomes before deciding to act. Suga’s independence, self-confidence, career-oriented mindset, and savage sense of humor all make him an obvious choice for Slytherin.
On the other hand, many fans might have expected RM to sort Jimin into Hufflepuff, since he does everything he can to take care of the people around him. Slytherins, however, can also be fiercely loyal, and Jimin’s perfectionism, ambition, and occasional sneakiness could make him a great fit for this house.
