Bea Binene, Megan Young, personalities, netizens heartbroken over BTS taking a hiatus

Singer Jed Madela, a certified ARMY, admitted, “Huuuuyy sobrang nalulungkot ako sa balita about BTS!”

On Tuesday, June 14, the K-pop supergroup BTS made its fans sad after announcing an unexpected pause during their annual celebration with fans.

While holding their “Festa Dinner with BTS”, leader RM confessed that the band has lost its “overall identity” and has no idea how to tell their fans the bad news.

“For me, it was a big deal that I didn’t know what we’re going to do as a group from now on. I don’t know what kind of direction our group has to take,” RM said. “[R]ight now, we’ve lost our direction, and I just want to take some time to think and then return, but that just feels rude to our fans.”

Their announcement devastated netizens, especially on Twitter, as it became a trending topic on social media sites.

Megan Young had mixed emotions upon hearing the news. On her Instagram story, she said, “I was crying so hard then I saw Jin prepare for the toast at the end. Then I started laughing while crying.”

On her Twitter account, the beauty queen wrote, “Bangtan” along with a crying emoji.

Professional volleyball player Dennise Lazaro was heartbroken, too, as she is yet to see the group perform in a live concert.

This unexpected news from the supergroup also saddened netizens.

A fan believed that this decision of BTS was due to being burned out.

RM even said that being an idol does not give them “time to mature”, but keeps them contained in a “cycle where you keep producing music, leaving no room for growth.”

However, not everyone took it as bad news. Kapuso actress Bea Binene, on her Instagram story, did not want to say goodbye to the K-pop group.

“No goodbyes, just see you soon,” the story read.

Voice talent Inka Magnaye was glad that BTS finally got the chance to “take a breather.”

A Twitter personality wanted the group to “have a blast” during their hiatus.

Meanwhile, despite grieving over the news, a netizen was thankful that BTS told their fans about their decision rather than leave them wondering why they started “doing solo schedules.”

Another wanted the group to “take your time” and said ARMYs would wait for their return.

Recording artist Reb Atadero shared his take on the group’s hiatus. He said that BTS really deserves a break after keeping the world entertained for so many years.

Meanwhile, singer Bituin Escalante is already excited for the comeback of BTS.

BTS celebrated its 9th anniversary with an anthology album, “Proof.” The group consisted of RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook, known for its hit songs such as Butter DynamiteMic DropDNA, and Fake Love to name a few.

Since its debut in 2013, the K-pop group has received 43 Mnet Asian Music Awards, 34 Melon Music Awards, 28 Golden Disc Awards, 23 Seoul Music Awards, 7 Korean Music Awards, 27 Gaon Chart Music Awards, 12 Billboard Music Awards, 9 American Music Awards, and 9 MTV Video Music Awards. BTS also is the first-ever group to win the Top Song Sales Artist at the Billboard Music Awards and earn five consecutive wins for Top Social Artist.

The group members, in the meantime, will be focusing on their solo ventures.
