BTS, the Korean pop superstar, is taking a sabbatical but pledges to return.
BTS, the Korean boy band, is taking a hiatus. The South Korean boy band made the announcement during a lengthy meal that was videotaped and published on social media.
“I always felt BTS was different from other groups,” RM, the group’s frontman, said in the video’s translation. “But the problem with K-pop and the whole idol system is that they don’t allow you time to develop.”
He went on to claim that the group had lost its direction after years of hard effort.
“To be clear, they are not on sabbatical,” a spokesman for Hybe, the band’s management organisation, said in a statement. “They will take time to explore certain individual projects at this time and stay active in multiple different formats.”
The seven members of BTS are seen sitting at a huge table with a spread of food and beverages in the footage. The wall is decorated with balloons and the words “BTS Festa.”
BTS made their debut in 2013. Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook are now about 30 years old and have spent several years working together to achieve worldwide success and become one of the most well-known music groups in the world.
Last month, they used their clout to deliver a message to the White House condemning anti-Asian bigotry.
However, Jin claims that their work has become increasingly robotic with time.
He explained, “I have my own hobbies and things I want to pursue on my own.”
Suga stated in the video that coming up with meaningful lyrics has been a difficult task.
They stated that in order for the band to continue, they must take a step back and grow and evolve as people.
They must do their own thing, according to RM. “I want BTS to last a long time,” he expressed his desire.
They have stated that they want to return after the break.
