BTS is finally getting the well-deserved rest they need! Fans around the globe are crying tears of joy.
On Sunday, BTS’s management company, Big Hit Entertainment, announced their hiatus period statement on Twitter.
In the statement it says, RM, Jungkook, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, and V would be taking “an official and extended period of rest and relaxation” and would not be performing.
“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,” the statement read.
“This will also provide them with a chance to enjoy ordinary lives of young people in their 20’s, albeit briefly,” the company added.
It’s about time! This is justice for all ARMY’s everywhere! BTS has worked 6 years straight with little to no breaks. This is 100% complete justice!

The K-pop group first debuted in 2013 and have been very busy ever since.
In the past six years, they have played released six full-length albums and six EPs.
Now that’s hard work at its finest.
“During this time, the members will rest and recharge in their own personal ways,” the band’s statement said. “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.”
Big Hit Entertainment later shared that the group planned to return, though did not specify when. “BTS will return refreshed and recharged to return all the love you have and continue to show them,” their statement concluded.
Fan responses the boys extended hiatus were overwhelmingly positive on Twitter!
