While it’s highly debatable if Squad Goals are a thing, these 5 men are ready to put a full stop to our debate. The star-studded group of Park Seo Joon, Park Hyung Sik, Choi Woo Shik, Peakboy, and BTS’ V forming the Wooga Squad has definitely stolen millions of hearts. From hanging out during their downtime, sending each other coffee trucks, and spending special occasions together, this group has the solid support system that we all love to see!
Wooga stands for “are we family”?
According to speculations, The Wooga stands for “FAMILY”. In one clip, BTS’ V, the group’s maknae (youngest) explains that ‘Wooga’ is an abbreviation for the phrase, ‘Are we family?’ (Woori-ga Gajok-inga?). This couldn’t be more fitting, seeing how these boys are practically bonded like brothers!
In one of the episodes of Summer Vacation, Choi Woo Shik revealed that he basically raised Wooga Squad member Park Seo Joon when they first became friends.
“We appeared together on the program Shut Up Family. I’m his senior by six months. Seo-joon couldn’t even look at me back then. I basically raised him, when he was all flustered and didn’t even know where the cameras were,” Woo-shik recalled via Soompi.
How did the wooga squad start?
They all connected through Park Seo Joon. Coming from very different areas of the entertainment industry, it’s really surprising to see how this group came so far – For that, we have Park Seo Joon, the founding member of the group to thank for.
The Wooga Squad was born after Park Seo Joon formed a tight-knit bond with Park Hyung Sik and BTS’ V on the set of Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth back in 2016. Soon after, Park Seo Moon’s longtime friend, rapper Peakboy, joined the group followed by Seo Joon’s Fight For My Way and Oscar Award-winning Parasite co-star, Choi Woo Shik, with whom he had first met in 2012 on the sitcom Shut Up Family—and the rest is history! Their best friend group has been inseparable ever since.
They are each other’s biggest fans:
Even though the boys belong to different spectrums of the entertainment industry, the amount of support they provide to each other is stupendous and overwhelming. They never fail to melt their fans’ hearts. They are each other’s biggest cheerleaders.

It was last year that BTS member V revealed in a tweet that he had “irritated” his Wooga Squad brothers into sending him a personalized coffee and a snack truck as a surprise gift because he was jealous of his teammate at the show. the boyband, Jungkook.
Sending trucks of coffee and snacks between famous friends in Korea is a pretty sweet tradition. It’s a way of showing your support for your friend’s work project to be successful while providing them with delicious snacks to devour and the BTS stars were not far behind.
2. Did Tae ever say that he’s healing when he’s with Wooga Squad and his family so his members asked him “not with us,” but he didn’t answer?
Well, taehyung didn’t exactly say that. They were talking about what they wanted to do in the New year. And he said that he wanted to do partake in activities that would heal his mind. Then jk followed up with “with who?” to which tae replied that he can do plenty of those things on his own. After which jk asked “not with me /us?“ which tae ignored and didn’t reply to.
But later when jin suggested that they go fishing and jhope and yungi said that he should come with them, tae happily agreed. They even made plans.
So it wasn’t that he implied he didn’t wanna go healing with the members. He simply did not reply to jk.
3. What is Wooga Squad according to BTS?
The thing with Wooga Squad is that some Army took it to a level that makes no sense at all. Some said it was a betrayal to BTS and that kind of thing.

After hanging up, Jin explained, “Our Taehyung [V’s given name] is so incredibly kind. Last night, work wrapped up late, so I was really tired and needed to sleep.
