Jungkook went live on the V Live app and clarified the misunderstandings for once and all. Via a translator, he shared that the band would be working on solo projects, but that doesn't mean that they will stop working as a team. He also reiterated that BTS are not disbanding -- as they insisted during the announcement.

What does BTS hiatus mean?
'BTS hiatus' became a rage on social media with many being confused as to what it means. While many thought it means that the band is breaking up, HYBE with a statement clarified that it is not the case. HYBE released a statement backpedaling on the use of the word "hiatus." The group had spoken in Korean in their video announcement and the word "hiatus" was used in English subtitles. "BTS are not taking a hiatus. Members will be focusing more on solo projects at this time," the statement said.
