While it may surprise many, Twitter also notes that the hashtag is actually about a different issue. “BTS is not disbanding, but there is conflict within the K-Pop fan community,” the message pops up every time a user taps on the #BTSdisband.
This then resulted in reciprocal comments that led to fan wars in the K-Pop community which heated up again when BTS and BLACKPINK fans started trending the topic.
However, BTS renewed its contract in 2018 and extended it for another seven years. Because of this certainty, the issue of BTS disbanding should not be possible until 2025.
Even so, the disbandment of BTS may not happen again in the near future, although some members will undergo military service and they will probably appear without a complete lineup.
Until now, there is no official statement from BTS’ label management regarding their disbandment because they have renewed their contract.
BTS’ Contract Ended And 7-Year Curse
The 7-year curse seemed to have become a frightening occurrence. Not only for the fans, but also for the members themselves. Several groups have also proven that an idol group will collapse in the 7th year of their career.
However, it seems that this curse will not happen to BTS, which became a successful K-Pop group under Big Hit Entertainment and managed to go international. During an event that was held in August 2019, BTS was faced with a question regarding the group’s contract with Big Hit Entertainment which was about to expire.
As is known, BTS has been in the entertainment industry for more than 6 years, so in 2018 they can decide to extend or terminate the contract with the agency.
When asked about the contract’s renewal, Suga gave a hint by answering, “Good news will be delivered soon.” Although we can’t confirm the good news, it is likely that the good news is meant for them and their fans.
Not only that, other members have also expressed their desire to end their career. At the ‘Mnet Asian Music Awards’ in 2018, Jin gave a speech and revealed that the group had thought about disbanding in the past.
“We suffered so much this year… We even thought about disbanding, but we all put our hearts together again,” Jin said. “Receiving this award, I am pleased that it led to such a good result.”
BTS’ Future Plan If They Are Disbanding
Not only active careers as a group, BTS members also have their own busy promotions do solo careers.
Several members such as RM, J-Hope, Jungkook, and V were also busy releasing their solo songs. Not only that, the hyung line at BTS just like Jin is also actually preparing to be enlisted the military, even though the schedule was postponed some time ago.
Therefore, the possibility for BTS’ members to promote as soloists, whether it comes as singers, actor,s and more is quite high. Besides, their abilities as entertainers are unquestionable.
There will be many offers for them in the future to continue their careers in the entertainment industry although the members had to go solo.
There is also another possibility for BTS to continue their career as a group, but sign up for a new contract with other management labels. However, it is still a small possibility that will happen in the future.
What do you expect BTS’ members to be in the future if they are compared?
