Big Hit said the much-needed break provides a chance for the members of BTS — that’s RM, Jungkook, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin and V — to “rest and recharge.”
“This will also provide them with a chance to enjoy the ordinary lives of young people in theirs 20s, albeit briefly,” the group said in an English version of their statement.
There’s no word on how long this vacation will last or what the teen idols will do with their newfound freedom, but Big Hit implored fans to give them their privacy.
“Should you have a chance encounter with a member of BTS while they are on vacation, we ask that you show consideration for their need to rest and enjoy their private time off,” the company wrote. “BTS will return refreshed and recharged to return all the love you have and continue to show them.”
Twitter user bette said she’d be quick to remind the boys that they’re on a break if they attempted to work during their hiatus.
Fan neish tweeted, “bts waking up after their well deserved hiatus fully rested and happy ready to come back to break more records and deliver more unmatched content” with a video of a sleepy Suga.
A user called “Still bangtan” said they were “actually crying rn, out of joy and relief. This is what they deserve as world dominating artists and as human beings. Rest well!!”
BTS hasn’t slowed down since 2013
Phew. Maybe they’ve earned a break.
