Big Hit Entertainment, the South Korean entertainment company behind BTS, announced that the superstar K-pop group will soon be taking an “official and extended period of rest and relaxation.”
In the statement, posted to Twitter on Sunday (Aug. 11), Big Hit wrote that BTS will be taking some much needed time off following their performance at the Lotte Duty Free Family Concert in South Korea on Sunday. This will mark BTS' first break since their 2013 debut.
“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, albeit briefly,” the statement reads.
