A representative for BTS clarifies the hiatus news


A representative for the group BTS said on Tuesday that the boy band is taking a break, but it will only be brief.

BTS's rep told The Associated Press that the seven-member group will take a "well-deserved vacation." It was recently reported that BTS will head on an "extended" hiatus, but the group's rep said that's not the case.

"It has been widely reported that BTS will be taking a hiatus. To clarify, BTS will only be taking a brief, but well-deserved vacation," the group's rep said in an emailed statement. "We want to assure all of the BTS ARMY, fans, friends and the media that the group is excited to get back on the stage very soon for their scheduled stadium tour. More exciting BTS news and events to come!"

BTS's agency Big Hit Entertainment announced that the group will take a "vacation" on sunday but the media reported the news as an "extended hiatus" to which Big Hit had to clarify.

Meanwhile, the boys are very active on Weverse, Twitter and VLive; it doesn't look like they see their fans as "work".

The agency didn't say when BTS will start performing again. The company's website said BTS is scheduled to perform in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and Seoul in October.

It's good that they clarified everything because some American media outlets started to speculate about disbandment or some serious health issues. But it only shows the differences between American and Korean music industries. When an American artist takes some time off, no one is surprised and Korean are kinda expected to work without breaks.

See this is where the problems come from, American journalists who apparently can’t read English get everyone worked up into a fit. The original announcement was clear enough stating “vacation” and “chance to enjoy the ordinary lives of young people in their 20’s ALBEIT BRIEFLY”. I mean come on where does that say health problems and hiatus? People need to stop reading into things that are clear as day.
