J-Hope’s V-log: Behind The Secret Business Trip To L.A.
As it has been reported, last August, BTS members were on hiatus from all their activities and promotions. Big Hit Entertainment had released a statement about the group that needs to rest after six years of nonstop performing. Big Hit stated that BTS will be going on an official and extended period of rest and relaxation. Their statement reads as follows:
“This period of rest will be an opportunity for the members of BTS, who have endlessly pushed themselves towards their goals since their debut, to recharge and prepare themselves to present themselves anew as musicians and creators. This will also give them the opportunity to enjoy the ordinary lives of young people in their 20s, even though for a short time. During this time, members will rest and recharge in their own personal ways.”
During the group’s extended period of rest, BTS’ J-Hope was spotted leaving Incheon International Airport himself without the other members. And it appears that J-Hope took a trip to L.A. during BTS’ hiatus for some “unknown solo promotion.” After a few days, he then returned to Korea.
