They've taken the world by storm.
But after six years, K-pop boy band BTS say its time for a break.
After a string of global hits, the group are taking their first long holiday.
And their managers have asked fans to respect their privacy, should they see them in a quote "chance encounter".
BTS has led a wave of Korean pop music.
Their international success marked by three No.1 albums on the Billboard chart in under a year.
Not forgetting a 2019 Grammy nomination and concerts spanning from LA to Paris.
The group of seven's management company, Big Hit Entertainment, said the group will recharge and quote, "prepare to present themselves anew as musicians and creators." Big Hit did not say how long BTS's hiatus would be.
But the band's website said their next world tour concert is in Saudi Arabia in October.
BTS broke into the U.S. market in 2017, becoming the first Korean group to win a Billboard music award.
