South Korean popular boy group BTS got their individual Instagram account after following their announcement of their 2nd ever extend the vacation.
In just a few minutes since the launch of the accounts, all seven BTS members have crossed 2 million followers already.
In a statement released by BigHit MUSIC, it was revealed that “BTS is planning to take a second official extended period of rest since their first in 2019 after they complete their official scheduled events of “BTS PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – LA” and the “2021 Jingle Ball Tour.”
“BTS stayed active in order to engage with fans in 2020 and 2021 amidst the COVID-19 situation and achieved dazzling results to cement themselves as top global artists. This period of rest will provide the members of BTS who have tirelessly committed themselves to their activities, a chance to get re-inspired and recharge with creative energy. It will also be the first time for them since their debut to spend the holiday season with their families. We kindly ask once again that you show consideration for their need to enjoy ordinary and free, everyday lives while solely concentrating on themselves, albeit for a short while, during their period of rest.”
The group has also hinted at working on a new album and on a tour that will be held in Seoul in March 2022. “BTS will be focusing on preparing for the concert and release of the new album that will mark the beginning of a “new chapter.” They are preparing for a concert this coming March to connect and communicate with the fans in-person in Seoul. We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to all the fans who continue to cheer for BTS and they will return as their best, healthiest selves after recharging so they can return all the love from the fans,” the statement concluded.
