BTS is taking a break – how long will they be away from the limelight? 1

BTS fans will be seeing less of the South Korean boy band in the next few months, as Big Hit Music announced on Monday that Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook are all taking a break starting this month.

“We would like to inform you that BTS is planning to take a second official extended period of rest since their first in 2019, after they complete their official scheduled events of BTS Permission to Dance on Stage – LA and the 2021 Jingle Ball Tour,” reads the beginning of the announcement posted on Big Hit Music’s social media accounts.

The group’s vacation is a well-deserved one, with Big Hit Music pointing out that “BTS stayed active in order to engage with fans in 2020 and 2021 amidst the COVID-19 situation, and achieved dazzling results to cement themselves as top global artists.”

The announcement notes that the group’s extended period of rest will allow the septet to recharge their creative energy and spend the Christmas season with their loved ones.

“This period of rest will provide the members of BTS who have tirelessly committed themselves to their activities, a chance to get re-inspired and recharge with creative energy,” the statement explains. “It will also be the first time of them since their debut to spend the holiday season with their families. We kindly ask once again that you show consideration for their need to enjoy ordinary and free, everyday lives while solely concentrating on themselves, albeit for a short while, during their period of rest.”

While the announcement doesn’t specify when exactly will BTS be back, it does note that the boy band will be having an in-person concert in Seoul this coming March, which will seemingly be followed by the release of their next album.

“BTS will be focusing on preparing for the concert and release of the new album that will mark the beginning of a ‘new chapter,’” the statement continues. “They are preparing for a concert this coming March to connect and communicate with the fans in-person in Seoul.”

With that said, it appears that the band’s break will last for about three months. Fans, however, won’t likely miss the boys too much, as all seven of them have recently created their own personal Instagram accounts, which you can see below:
