Though the word “hiatus” is used in the English subtitles, Suga‘s words can also be translated as “off-season” or “off-period.” Suga states, “Anyways, we’ve now entered an off-season…” signifying the members are already in this phase.

Naturally, ARMYs were shocked by the subtitles, indicating a hiatus. Many even interpreted it to mean that BTS was disbanding.


Im so happy for them & will always support them through it all🥹💜

Yet, even during Festa Dinner Party, the members had clarified that they were in no way disbanding.

Shortly after, HYBE‘s stock value dropped greatly. Since then, HYBE has released a statement clarifying the “hiatus,” and CEO Park Jiwon has personally denied all rumors of BTS potentially disbanding and spoke up about the group’s future plans.
