K-Pop Stars BTS Go On First Hiatus Since 2013
K-Pop group, BTS will be taking a much-needed break from the spotlight. The group’s management agency, Big Hit Entertainment, has revealed that the group will be taking a hiatus.
The public announcement stated, “We would like to announce that for the first time since their debut, BTS will be going on an official and extended period of rest and relaxation. Today’s LOTTE DUTY FREE FAMILY CONCERT performance will mark the last scheduled event before the members prepare to take their vacations. This period of rest will be an opportunity for the members of BTS, who have relentlessly driven themselves toward their goal since their debut, to recharge and prepare to present themselves anew as musicians and creators. This will also provide them with a chance to enjoy the ordinary lives of young people in their 20s, albeit briefly. During this time, the members will rest and recharge in their own personal ways. Should you have a chance encounter with a member of BTS while they are on vacation, we ask that you show them consideration for their need to rest and enjoy their private time off. BTS will return refreshed and recharged to return all the love you have and continue to show them. Thank you.”

The BTS boys, RM (Kim Namjoon), Jin (Kim Seokjin), Suga (Min Yoongi), J-Hope (Jung Hoseok), Jimin (Park Jimin), V (Kim Taehyung), and Jungkook, (Jeon Jeongguk) performed their last show together in August at the Lotte Duty Free concert in Seoul. Although the group is taking time off from their performances together, there is a chance fans could see some solo music outside of BTS. After the announcement of the group’s break, BTS member V released a solo song in English called “Winter Bear.”
