K-pop band BTS to go on indefinite break to 'regroup and recharge,' shattered fans wish them well
Fans believe the break is a well-deserved one as the 20-year-olds need an "extended period of rest and relaxation." There are others who think the group may never get back again...
The band K-Pop band BTS is planning on taking a break for the first time since its inception in Seol in 2013. The band has been together for six consecutive years and now the stars are taking a break, though the good news is that it is not a permanent end to the band.
The 'break-up' is just an "undefined time-out" for the kings of K-pop to "regroup and recharge their batteries", Asia Times reported. The announcement was made by their label Big Hit Entertainment on August 12, right after they completed their concert in Seoul.
Some of the ardent fans of the band think the band may not come back together again. On Twitter, the label said, “We would like to announce that for the first time since debut, BTS will be going on an official and extended period of rest and relaxation." They also feel that the break will provide "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" as reported by Asia Times.
Many fans on Twitter are going crazy - one fan said, "so BTS will be having a long vacation... namjoon and jungkook will spend their birthdays with their families for the first time without cameras, works and anything :’) WHERE ARE THESE TEARS COMING FROM I’M SO HAPPY FOR THEM #RestWellBTS

This break also is to provide the band with a good opportunity to enjoy their lives as young 20-year-old people, reports said.
BTS smashed the hex that tormented the industry of K-pop for decades by bursting into Western markets and making a mark on that large industry. They addressed the United Nations in New York, "planted a huge crowd of seats around the world and managed to generate a heap-load of awards and accolades for themselves." The band, with such young members," has proven to the world that they are capable of greater heights as reported on Asia Times.
They were also featured on the US TV show Saturday Night Live in one of the most highly anticipated episodes in recent times.
