The previous reports have been updated to reveal that BTS actually will be resting during the Chuseok holiday.
Big Hit Entertainment released a new statement, sharing, “They do have two concerts scheduled after the Chuseok holiday at Kyocera Dome in Osaka, Japan, but the members will be taking breaks during the holiday.”
It has been revealed that BTS will be working through the upcoming Chuseok holiday.
On September 21, a source from Big Hit Entertainment revealed, “BTS has tight schedules including comeback music show appearances, music video filming, and advertisement shoots, and they also have two concerts at Kyocera Dome in Osaka, Japan during the week that the Chuseok holiday ends. As a result, the members do not have free time to spend with their families during the holiday.”
The break for this year’s Chuseok, the Korean equivalent of Thanksgiving, is longer than most years, lasting for 10 days from September 30 through October 9.
BTS will be kept busy with various schedules throughout the holiday, especially as they work on promotions for their new hit track “DNA.” They will kick off with their first performances of the new music via the “BTS Comeback Show” on September 21 at 8:30 p.m. KST.
