Fans trend BigHit worldwide + ask for a break for the members of BTS

Is BTS being overworked? 

Near the end of August, the K-pop boy group made their comeback with the new album 'Love Yourself: Answer'. A day after the release, BTS kicked off their world tour in Seoul. They then traveled to the United States and Canada for shows in Los Angeles, Oakland, Fort Worth, Hamilton, Newark, Chicago, and New York. In midst of the tour, the boys appeared on 'The Late Night Show with Jimmy Fallon', and even gave an inspirational speech at 'General Assembly of the United Nations'. They also added a stop at Citi Field for their world tour - becoming the first K-pop act ever to hold a U.S stadium concert. All of these remarkable events took place in just a month. 

It's great to see the K-pop group flourish globally, but many fans are becoming concerned about BTS' hectic schedule. 

On October 9, Big Hit Entertainment announced that maknae member Jungkook won't be able to participate in the choreography at BTS' concert in London due to an injury. Two days later on the 11th, the agency announced that Jimin will not be able to participate in the recording for 'The Graham Norton Show' due to poor health conditions. Shortly after the news, BigHit started trending worldwide on Twitter.

The BigHit tweets are mostly ARMYs showing concerns for the members of BTS. Some are strongly demanding a break for the idol stars who have been working nonstop. Some others are even criticizing the agency for overworking the boys. 

BTS is currently in the United Kingdom for their shows in London. Next, they will be traveling to the Netherlands, Germany, France, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Thailand until April 2019  for the 'Love Yourself' world tour. On the official Big Hit Entertainment website, it states, "more dates to come", meaning the tour could be extended. 

Meanwhile, BTS confirmed their attendance at the '2018 MBC Plus x Genie Music Awards' taking place in Korea in November. They're also most likely attending the various year-end award shows in December. 

The K-pop stars have truly become the "biggest boy band in the world", but are they being overworked? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

I don’t feel like their being over worked. They are happy with what they’re doing. Whatever ARMY says otherwise, They are NOT being overworked. They are happy with what their doing, and they said it themselves.
