The group consists of Ryan Higa, Justin Chon, Philip Wang, David Choi, and Jun Sung Ahn.
On May 13, 2016, BgA debuted with their song "Dong Saya Dae". The song is produced by David Choi and Beatpusher and written by Ryan Higa & David Choi. Their choreography was helmed by Jun Sung Ahn and Lisa Rhee. The music video, directed by Wesley Chan and Philip Wang and featured on Ryan Higa's channel, consists of choreographed dance routines in different locations, including an arcade, an abandoned alleyway, and an empty garage, as well as intersecting scenes with lead singer Ryan Higa and a guest star, Neka Stephens.
