Korean boyband BTS have announced that they will be taking an extended break.
The K-pop supergroup, who have been conquering charts and performing in concerts for six years, will be on hiatus and taking time to rest.
Management for the group released a statement alerting fans of the news.
“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 be the last scheduled event before members prepare to take their vacations,” the statement read.
“This period of rest will be an opportunity for the members of BTS, who have relentlessly driven themselves towards 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.”
News of BTS’ break comes two days after Boy With Luv singer V released his solo track Winter Bear, suggesting he’ll be taking the time off to focus on new music.
