During the Festa dinner , BTS announced a ‘hiatus’ which left fans shocked and heartbroken. Suga had said in a video during the dinner, “So we’ve entered an off-season. We’re going into a hiatus now.” “It’s not like we’re disbanding. We should live doing what we want to do,” he added.

Later BigHit clarified: “BTS are not taking a hiatus. Members will be focusing more on solo projects at this time.”

BTS album Proof

The group released their anthology album ‘Proof’ in June. The album is a collection of BTS’ hit old as well as new songs. It included three new songs- ‘Yet to Come’, ‘Run BTS’, and ‘Born Singer’. Their old hits – ‘I Need You’, ‘Run’, ‘Fire’, ‘Fake Love’, ‘Persona’, ‘Moon’, are also part of the album.

BTS visits White House

The septet attended the White House Press briefing in May to discuss anti-Asian hate crimes. They made history as they had a meeting with US President Joe Biden at the White House for the first time ever.

The US President also surprised the group by playing ‘Butter’ in the Oval Office before their discussion to make them ‘feel at home’.

BTS military service

According to South Korean rule, military service for able-bodied men by 28 is mandatory. K-pop stars are granted the ability to defer their enrolment until 30.

This year, in October, BigHit Music announced that military enlistment will begin with the eldest member Jin. All the other members–RM, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V aka Kim Taehyung and Jungkook will follow him. The group will reconvene in 2025.
