About BTS and their hiatus
Earlier this year, the K-Pop group BTS announced that the group are going on 'hiatus' to focus on their individual careers with a line-up of solo projects for the K-Pop superstars. This announcement came during BTS' Festa dinner, which is part of an annual celebration of their founding. The group detailed their tentative plans for solo projects and explained to fans that they 'need the time to take an extended break.'
It is believed that one of the primary reasons that the band decided to go on hiatus was because Jin had to serve his military service. Jin, the oldest member of BTS, is approaching the age of 30 and according to the Military Service Act, he has to enlist in the military early next year. The other BTS members will have to follow.
