After announcing a hiatus last month, K-pop megastars BTS are officially back in business. Having taken roughly a month off to recover from six years of “relentless” performing and touring, the seven-member boyband have returned to work today and were spotted at Seoul’s Incheon Airport as they departed for scheduled overseas promos.
Of course, the groups dedicated fans, the BTS Army, took to social media to discuss the comeback, with the hashtag #BTSIsBack reaching a #1 worldwide trend on Twitter. The eagle-eyed fans were quick to spot small changes within the band, including Jungkook’s longer hair and a permanent-looking “Army” tattoo and Suga’s slightly lighter hair color.
Of course, the comeback after just a month’s rest has left many wondering what’s in store now that BTS are ready to restart their reign as the kings of K-pop. What we know so far is that they are scheduled to continue the phenomenal Love Yourself: Speak Yourself tour, with the next performance date being October 11 in Saudi Arabia. Following this, the band will return to Seoul for homecoming shows spanning October 26, 27 and 29.
Jungkook also shared a sneak listen of a new, original solo song earlier this month to mark his 22nd birthday so it could be likely we’ll hear a full release in the near future. There are also rumors that their reality show, Bon Voyage may be returning for a fourth season due to the group being spotted with cameras as they travelled through the airport.
