We want ARMY to be happy through our music, and we will be there for you, for the one we love - BTS V
BTS, also known as 방탄소년단 ( BANGTAN SONYEONDAN) is a K-pop group consisting of 4 vocalists, namely JIN, Jimin, V, Jungkook and 3 rappers namely SUGA, J-Hope, RM. This group is formed in 2010 and debuted in 2013. They started as a hip- hop group and eventually started adding different genres to their music which is liked by all the ARMY's ( BTS fans) around the world. They started from the very bottom but now they are the biggest boy group/ band on this planet Earth.
BTS receives their first DAESANG in 2016, which is the biggest award in Korea. They are the first group to win DAESANG in MMA (major music awards) for six consecutive years since 2016. BTS made their debut at billboard charts 200 in 2015 and end up appearing at Billboard Music Awards in 2017, where they win the top social artist award. In 2018, BTS gave speech at UNICEF to promote Generation Unlimited and again they were invited at UN general assembly to talk about the pandemic, 'the COVID generation'. BTS were the first K-pop to appear on 61st Grammy awards for award giving. Again, they were invited to perform at 63rd Grammy Awards. Due to their hard work, they were nominated for the best group award for their song 'Dynamite' on the 64th Grammy's. They were again nominated for the same category in Grammy's 2022 for their song 'Butter'. Recently, they were invited by President Joe Biden at WHITE HOUSE to speak about Anti-Asian Hate on May 31st. They have achieved all this because of their great hard work which can't be described in words.
ARMY'S DOUBTS REGARDING BTS GOING ON HIATUS
BTS have completed their 9 years with ARMY recently. On their anniversary, they organize a FESTA every year to celebrate it. It is like a dinner party, in which the 7 members of BTS get together and talk about different stuffs. This FESTA is watched by millions, billions of ARMIES all around the world. It was a quite enjoyable time for both BTS and ARMIES.
But on this 9th anniversary, which was aired on 14th June 2022, it was not an enjoyable time both for BTS and army, instead it was a painful time for both of them, as on this dinner party, the BTS members talk about their hiatus. They said that their dorm contract had already completed and they are now living separately. They further say that they will go on a hiatus and focus on their solo projects and release their solo albums instead of mixtapes. They assured that they are not disbanding and they will come together again soon. BTS own variety show RUN BTS will continue to proceed. But the other group projects will be stopped for a while. This comment of BTS leave army with a heavy heart as they want to see the group together forever.
It ain't that we are disbanding, we are just
taking some time apart for a while - SUGA
HYBE STATEMENT ON HIATUS
After this heart-breaking statement of BTS members, HYBE (BTS company) gives an official statement on June 15th, 2022 that BTS aren't going on a hiatus, they will do group projects as always but this time they will focus on their solo projects more and release their solo albums but don't go on a hiatus.
BTS members new statement:
After so many confusion and dilemma about the BTS hiatus and disbanding, the two of the BTS members Jungkook and RM came to social media to clear everything. They assured that they are not going on a hiatus and they will do group projects and will remain as a group. BTS leader RM posted a statement on WEVERSE that it is an over reaction that we are disbanding when we are not, but we are glad that our fans ARMY are supporting us. Also Jungkook do a VLIVE on 15th June saying that he come here to remove the whole dilemma of BTS disbanding. He also clears that it is no true and BTS will stay forever.
It is not true that we are disbanding, we just will have some solo activities. But we are not disbanding, we still have a lot of projects to work as a group. BTS is forever. ARMY is forever- JUNGKOOK
So, it is a relieved statement from HYBE and BTS members for armies, though we can't see much of their group projects as compared to solo projects, but it is quite good that they aren't going on hiatus and remain as a group while doing their solo and group projects.
