HYBE CEO denies rumors of BTS' disbandment


HYBE CEO Park Ji Won personally denied rumors of BTS' disbandment.

After the announcement that BTS will be taking a group hiatus, fans, netizens, and reports have been speculating about the group's actual next move, and rumors about the group's disbandment quickly spread online. BTS' label CEO Park Ji Won then sent an e-mail to all employees at HYBE to clarify the situation.

The e-mail stated, "Through the 'BTS Festa Dinner Party', BTS expressed their desire to expand their range of activities by combining group activities and individual activities for the continued growth and maturation of the group. Portions of the video are being blown out of proportion and wrongly interpreted, which is leading to the spread of false information."

On the rumors of a disbandment, Park Ji Won stated, "BTS are not even considering disbanding the group at all, and there's no process going on regarding the disbandment of the group." The CEO further assured BTS won't be entirely stopping group activities just because they'll be focusing on individual activities.

As for BTS' individual activities, he revealed, "They've already been set up or currently in the works. They'll be announced soon, and there'll be a synergistic effect between their individual and group activities. In the case of group activities, the promotions for their 'Proof' album are already happening, and more group activities are in the process of setting up. BTS have had long-term breaks before in the past, and through this period of individual promotions, each member will be able to have their own break and individual activities. Both the artists and company aim to further establish BTS as 21st century pop icons with the diversification of their activities."

Why are the rumors flying around? BTS members definitely did say that they are not disbanding. We Army will be cheering them on on their solo activities and will rejoice when they perform as a group. Borahae 💜
