Mangaluru: The ARMY has had contradictory opinions since the K-pop band Bangtan Boys (BTS) revealed taking a break during the BTS Festa 2022. While some argue that the decision to disband was wrong, others believe it is the ideal time for the members, including RM, Jin, Jungkook, Jimin, V, Jhope, and Suga to focus on their individual projects.
BTS has already made it clear numerous times that the band is not disbanding. The band’s management company, Big Hit Entertainment, soon made it clear that the band is not disbanding but shifting its focus to each member’s solo ventures not taking a hiatus.
Following much debate and criticism, the BTS ARMY has shown its support for the band by expressing its support on social media with #BTSItsOkayToRest and its trending first on Twitter.
BTS Army showed their unwavering support by sharing photos and videos thanking them for all that they have done for them.
