This announcement was made BTS during the annual BTS Festa which was broadcast on the BangtanTV YouTube channel on Tuesday (14/6) night. At the event, they had dinner reminiscing about their nine-year career as a group, and the next steps they will take.
RM said that although they have gained a lot over the nine years, each individual needs time to develop into a wiser person. He also admitted that he felt lost in his role as leadernamely a person who writes a lot of lyrics as well as serves interviews with the media, especially with foreign media.
“Problems in K-pop and the system idol is they didn’t give us time to grow up. We have to always make music and always do something,” said RM.
Because of that, he as an individual wanted to take a break while contemplating their next move, both as an individual and as a group.
