Boy band phenomenon BTS have announced overnight that they will be going on an extended rest.
Big Hit Entertainment released the official news, stating the boys will be going on an “extended period of rest and relaxation.”
“This period of rest will be an opportunity for members of BTS, who have relentless 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.
“During this time, the members will rest and recharge in their own personal ways.
“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.
“BTS will return refreshed and recharged to return all the love you have and continue to show them.
Fans seemed to take the news well, with the hashtag #RestWellBTS trending on Twitter all morning.
The lads haven’t stopped dished out hits and dance moves since they debuted in 2013, so saying their break is much-needed is an understatement.
