While last week’s news of BTS taking an “extended period of rest and relaxation” had everyone in a tizzy wondering what this meant for one of the world’s biggest bands, the members have taken to social media to keep in touch.
While BTS’ Korean record label Big Hit Entertainment has requested that fans “show consideration for their need to rest and enjoy their private time off,” the guys have shared a few peeks into how they’re enjoying their time off with fans.
From taking in shows to going fishing, check out the publicly-shared glimpses into how the K-pop stars have are spending the break.
V Shared a Look Into His Playlist: The first post-hiatus tweet on the BTS members’ Twitter account came on Aug. 13 from V, when he shared a fun, one-minute video of him listening to Aminé‘s “Blackjack.” The video, with nearly eight million views on Twitter at press time, caught the attention of the Portland rapper who seemed literally shook from the support, tweeting “Lemme hold sumn.”

And where is Jungkook? The one member of BTS who hasn’t checked in with followers is youngest member Jungkook which has caused a cute concern among fans, but it’s very possible the noted homebody has just been laying low during the downtime. The singer’s 22nd birthday is a few days away on Sept. 1, which will likely mean some type of appearance, even if just a tweet to fans to say thank you.
