The record label also revealed what each band member will do during this break.

“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,” they said, adding: “It will also be the first time for them since their debut to spend the holiday season with their families.”

The label has asked all the fans to “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 statement also read that all the band members will focus on preparing for future concerts and the “release of a new album”.

“They are preparing for a concert this coming March to connect and communicate with the fans in-person in Seoul.”
