Members will take this time to achieve personal growth through various new activities, and we expect it to further strengthen the foundation for the group’s long-run as a team.

    Echoing his sentiments, J-Hope, assured fans the future of BTS will be positive for the group members. “I think we should spend some time apart to learn how to be one again,” he said during the live-streamed event. 

    “I hope you don’t see this as a negative thing, and see it as a healthy plan,” continued J-Hope. “I think BTS will become stronger that way.”
