Hugely popular K-Pop band Bangtan Boys (BTS) have announced a much-deserved long vacation to spend time with their families, following their final 2021 concert in Los Angeles.
A statement issued by BIGHIT MUSIC on Twitter tells fans about the extended leave, stating, “Hello. This is BIGHIT MUSIC. We would like to inform you that BTS is planning to take a second official extended period of rest since their first in 2019, after they complete their official scheduled events of BTS PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE-LA and the 2021 Jingle Ball Tour.”
The statement also mentions show much BTS has been working during the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.
“This period of rest will provide the members of BTS who have tirelessly committed themselves to their activities, a chance to get re-inspired and recharge with creative energy,” the statement says. “It will also be the first time for them since their debut to spend the holiday season with their families.”
Up ahead, the message says BTS will be focusing on getting ready for upcoming shows and a new album that will mark the beginning of a “new chapter.”
““They are preparing for a concert this coming March to connect and communicate with the fans in-person in Seoul. We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to all the fans who continue to cheer for BTS and they will return as their best, healthiest selves after recharging so they can return all the love from the fans,” the statement says.
