At their annual FESTA dinner in 2022, BTS stated that they’d be focusing on solo projects and military service.

In a 2023 live stream conversation he had with fellow band member on Weverse, RM said “He told me that there were a great number of ARMY [their fans] across the globe wanting the seven of us to reunite and perform again.” “But as I’m working on my solo project, I keep thinking this way: ‘This is like a vacation’.” “What I mean by that is that it’s a kind of vacation that we, BTS and ARMY, need to take to successfully come back as a whole. So, I believe all our solo activities are important trips for our next chapter, and they’re also trips which we must go on in order to safely come back home.”

RM insists: “We’ll be joining together again. And that will be in 2025.”

Meanwhile, the South Korean boy band – made up of RM, 29, Suga, 30, Jin, 31, V, 28, Jimin, also 28, and 26-year-old Jungkook – plan to reunite in 2025.s
