The BTS members will be taking time apart to focus on solo projects. The hiatus was announced by the singers during the celebration of the group's 9th year anniversary in the entertainment industry, broadcast to fans on YouTube.
The Hiatus Announcement
"Our attitude towards solo music, solo promotions, is going to change a lot now," said J-Hope, who is expected to be the first to release an album. "I think this change is what we need to start our second chapter." "We'll be able to focus on our solo work now, and when we get back together, the synergy will be even greater," promised member V.
The hiatus announcement comes shortly after the release of Proof, an anthology album gathering BTS singles, b-sides, and special recordings. BTS debuted in K-pop in 2013 and has since become the most significant force in the industry's expansion. Be that as it may, they assured us that the hiatus doesn't mean the end of BTS: "It's not that we're disbanding, we're just living apart for a while," Suga explained.
In the sequel, J-Hope added, “I think BTS could become a stronger group this way; this is a very important moment for us and the 2nd chapter of BTS.”
“Everyone has a schedule that's right for them,” Jungkook reinforced. "ARMY will have their motivations and timing as well." For him, “this moment should have come sooner, but I think we postponed it.”

I hope you can give us your blessings. I'll do my best. We will be a better version of ourselves. I firmly believe in this. So I hope you don't worry. Please wait for that day. I'll do my best".
