According to AP News, HYBE clarified BTS‘s plans for their second chapter.
During their 2022 FESTA Dinner, the members announced that they currently plan to focus more on solo activities at this time. According to HYBE’s statement, this does not mean the group will be on hiatus as they are planning to work on projects both as a group and individually.
BTS are not taking a hiatus. The members will be focusing more on solo projects at this time.
Though the word “hiatus” is used in the English subtitles, Suga‘s words can also be translated as “off-season” or “off-period.” Suga states, “Anyways, we’ve now entered an off-season…” signifying the members are already in this phase.
One of the first members to embark on his solo activities journey is J-Hope who is headlining 2022 Lollapalooza on July 31. Check out more from BTS below.
