BTS to take 'extended period of rest and relaxation'

BTS Announces Official Period Of Rest For Members Why BTS Is Taking an Extended Break: Will They Break Up Like One Direction?

Since making their debut, they've been number one on iTunes in over 65 countries, have got nearly 12 million subscribers on YouTube and are the first K-pop band EVER to top the U.S. album charts.

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.

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 USA and Britain earlier this year.

The statement read, "This 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".

The agency's statement did not say when the group would return to work, but they are scheduled to perform in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia - to the anger of women's and LGBT rights campaigners - and Seoul in October.

Many of them were nearly in tears, while others joked about the band and BTS' fanbase, a.k.a. the ARMY.

"BTS will return refreshed and recharged to return all the love you have and continue to show them", it added.

"Hello. This is Big Hit Entertainment".

Big Hit entertainment just released an announcement that BTS members will be taking an official and long period of rest and relaxation for the first time since their debut.

Some people encouraged the pop stars to relax, and some fans even insisted they should have a vacation.

Others tweeted reminders to give them the time off they need, as one fan noted: "Please everyone respect their privacy, don't run at them if you meet them by chance, don't take photos or make them uncomfortable Let them breathe in peace FOR FIRST TIME PLEASE".

How are you feeling about BTS taking a break? The feat tied the Beatles in having three top albums in less than a year.

Who knows. Guess we'll see in a few months!

"I love you very much and hope you enjoy your break to the fullest", a fan commented.
