BTS Announce Extended Break for the First Time Since Their Debut

Past year they became the first K-pop act to debut at the top of the Billboard Album chart with "Love Yourself: Tear".

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.

The K-pop superstars are going to be taking an "extended" break from performing.

"The latest break will be time of recharging for BTS who has worked restlessly since its debut so that they, as musicians and creators, would be able to come back anew", Big Hit said without giving details of the break.

They added: "Should you have a chance encounter with a member of BTS while they are on vacation we as that you show consideration for their need to rest and enjoy their private time off".

The band's management company, Big Hit Entertainment, announced in a statement on Twitter that members would be taking "an official and extended period of rest and relaxation".

Big Hit Entertainment implored the band's fans to give them a respectful distance while they rest up.

The 7 boys performed today at LOTTE DUTY FREE FAMILY CONCERT which will mark the last scheduled event before they prepare to take their vacations.

Many of them were nearly in tears, while others joked about the band and BTS' fanbase, a.k.a. the ARMY. We feel comfortable saying they've earned some time off.

How are you feeling about BTS taking a break? BTS is going to fall back for a bit!

South Korean performers such as Psy - whose 2012 hit Gangnam Style became the first video to top a billion views on YouTube - have previously broken into Western markets, but none have achieved BTS' sustained success.

Additionally, the agency asked that fans respect the band's period of rest and relaxation.

Fans don't believe the comparison to One Direction is the same, with one Twitter user noting: "can y'all stop compare bts and 1d we all knew 1d were gonna break up when zayn left it was honestly common sense".
