"단" should also qualify as "group" Ex. 방탄소년단

It's more like squad as it has military connotations. A group or team facing some danger or difficulty together, like a cheer-leading squad. It's used in names of bands too, as in that "Bulletproof Youth Squad", but . . .

What would it be for the slang i.e. "hanging out with the squad" or is there no word for that?
