During the past couple of years, we have heard about various groups of musicians disbanding, and there is no denying the fact that it would be a very sad moment for them, as well as the country of South Korea. However, it is also very important to remember that not all groups of bands disband, and there are many other reasons as to why one group might leave the industry. In this article, we will explore some of these reasons in detail and we will try to answer the question, “when will bts disband?”
They need to expand their arena from Kpop to more lifestyle-based products
‘Beat the System’ (BTS) is a K-pop group of seven members. They are known for their hard work ethic and dedication to their art. Their ballads are more intimate and sincere than many other pop standards.
BTS have a large international fan base. The fandom is an integral part of their success. This fandom has huge influence on the charts and media coverage. It has helped the group break through the culture barrier overseas and in the US. The fandom is referred to as ARMY. This fandom has a strong social network and is organized well. They are also active in various causes. They have participated in the Black Lives Matter movement and raised over $1 million for this cause.
As a group, BTS have performed in sold-out stadium shows throughout the world. They also made the US television debut at the American Music Awards in 2017. They opened the iHeartMedia Jingle Ball in December. They have been recognized with several Billboard Music Awards and MTV Video Music Awards. They are considered the voice of a generation.
They could join the ARMY
Almost a year ago, BTS announced a one-year hiatus from the group. The seven members of the Korean boy band were expected to reconvene around 2025.
At the time, BTS was still under its record label, Hybe. Its management company hoped the group would return to the stage by 2025.
The news of a one-year hiatus did not go over well with BTS fans. Some criticized the move for being a step back in their careers. They believed the group could have performed overseas while serving in the military. They also wondered whether the group would be able to continue making music without their leader, Jin.
However, the South Korean government has ruled out a military deferment for BTS. The seven members are all between 18 and 30 years old. This means they will be performing mandatory national military service in South Korea.
The BTS ARMY, as fans call them, have been petitioning to have the group enlist together. The ARMY’s petition gathered over 84,000 signatures. The group has been busy stockpiling content for the hiatus. The boys are currently working on individual projects, and will be back in the spotlight in the first half of next year.
South Korea will suffer from their disbandment
Throughout the nine years since their debut, BTS has proven to be the kings of the entertainment industry. They are now considered the face of South Korea and one of the biggest global superstars.
The group has made millions of dollars in merchandise sales and have generated $1.1 billion in other exports annually. They also have an impressive intellectual property portfolio. They have more patents than any other group.
BTS announced they were taking a break in mid-June. They framed the announcement as a transition into a new chapter of the group’s career. However, some fans were disappointed by the news. They thought BTS was disbanding.
The South Korean government has been closely involved in the BTS story. They have allowed members to postpone military conscription until they are 30. They have also offered exemptions to superstar soccer players.
The Korean Defense Minister has said they are evaluating K-Pop service as a professional commitment. They are considering a revision to the military service law that would allow people who contribute to international standing to get exemptions.
