K-pop superstars BTS to take 'long-term break'

BTS Announces Official Period Of Rest For Members

K-pop superstars BTS will take a "long-term break" from the music scene, their agency said Monday, after the boy band topped charts in the United States and Britain earlier this year.

The management company said in a statement that the '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.

It would also be a time for them to "enjoy their daily lives as normal 20-something young men", the agency said in a midnight statement.

The ARMY is dedicated to say the least, so the statement also asked fans to respect the privacy of RM, Jungkook, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin and V if they spot them in public and "show consideration for their need to rest and enjoy their private time off".

The hashtag #RestWellBTS appeared on social media soon after the announcement, with fans praising the superstar group for resting after such a heavy period of recording, touring, and promotion.
