K-Pop Phenoms BTS to Take Extended Break

August 12, 2019

The agency for K-pop phenoms BTS have announced that the group's members are taking a break so they can “enjoy the ordinary lives of young people in their 20s, albeit briefly."  Big Hit Entertainment added that the "vacations" are the first for the septet since 2013, and stressed that the group wants privacy while away from the spotlight. “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 agency said. It's unclear when BTS will return, although the group does have previously booked gigs in Saudi Arabia and Seoul in October.
