BTS is a seven member boy band from South Korea. The members are RM (Kim Namjoon), Jin (Kim Seokjin), Suga (Min Yoongi), J-Hope (Jung Hoseok), Jimin (Park Jimin), V (Kim Taehyung), and Jungkook (Jeon Jungkook). 

Just this year, the band has become the first K-pop band to present a Grammy Award, perform on Saturday Night Live, and win Top Group at the Billboard Music Awards. On top of these accomplishments, they are the only ones to have sold out the biggest stadium in the world, along with other stops on their 2019 world tour “Love Yourself: Speak Yourself.” After being so successful this year, the boys are going on a two month break. 

In mid-August, the group started their two month break that will end mid-October. This break allows the members to relax after working so hard for such a long time. They will get a chance to see their families after traveling the world on their tour for so long. Members Jungkook and RM get a chance to celebrate their birthdays with their families in September, which is something they do not get to do often. 

During their break, the BTS members traveled to many places and had the opportunity to hang out with friends and family. RM, the leader of the group, loves art, and visits art museums often. He has posted many pictures of art during their break on the band’s twitter account. All of the members love nature and have posted many pictures of themselves outside. The members are very active on twitter and even when they are on break, they still try their best to keep ARMY happy.
