When he asked RM a perplexing question
In 2014, during a special episode, he and the rest of the team went on to prank RM. RM walked into his office and Suga, J-Hope was already in the room as per Bang PD's plan. The other BTS members were watching from another side of the room. The meeting began and RM was questioned for various reasons. Bang PD blamed RM and said that he was slacking off instead of producing music. RM bowed his head down and listened calmly. “Will you be okay without going solo?” he asked. RM said 'yes'. Later Bang PD asked, “You don't want to go solo are you?” RM said “No”. “Let me ask you again, solo or Bangtan Boys?” he asked RM and the leader said, “Bangtan.”
When he made food for Jin

Suga venting to Bang PD
During the initial days after their debut, they appeared in a variety show. During a segment, Suga had exposed Bang PD's 'lie'. Suga had said, "It's been three years already since I joined this company. Someone told a big lie to me three years ago. Three years ago, Bang PD told me, 'Suga, you'll be in a group like 1TYM. You won't need choreography. Just do some moves'. He told me all I needed to do was rap. Three years have passed. Our choreography is the hardest among all the performances on TV. Honestly, I wanted to join 1TYM. Three years ago, you tricked me before signing the contract.” Bang PD, who was laughing till then, took the mic and told Suga, "Hearing you out, I think you should do more dance practice." Which had everyone pleading to him and the staff members around were laughing!
