BTS Preparing For Military Service? ARMYs Believe ‘Run BTS!’ Will Have A 2-Year Hiatus!
Earlier this month, ARMYs were saddened by the news announced by Weverse regarding their favorite BTS reality show.
Although the BTS show is extremely popular to fans, the K-pop boy group's highly loved variety program entitled "Run BTS!" will be officially taking a hiatus, to the sadness of BTS' fanbase, the ARMYs.
Weverse has gone on to announce that, after six years and having a run of 154 episodes, "Run BTS!" will soon be taking an unspecified break. On the 4th of October, Weverse's announcement regarding "Run BTS!" was as follows:
"Since the first broadcast in August 2015
after being a source of strength and laugher for over 150 episodes
Run BTS will be taking a break!"
It was initially believed that "Run BTS!" will be on a break as another reality series "BTS In the SOOP 2" is broadcasting. The 2nd season of "BTS In the SOOP" is going to premiere on the 15th of October, with new episodes dropping every Friday on Weverse at 10 p.m. KST.
But perhaps "Run BTS!" will be taking a hiatus due to the boy group members gearing up to enlist in the military.
In a recent behind-the-scenes video, BTS's RM, Suga, J-Hope, and Jungkook talked about ideas for future "Run BTS!" episodes. In the clip, RM imagined re-introduced himself as "RM, 30," and Jungkook was supposedly 27 years old.
The current ages of RM and Jungkook are 27 and 24, and their 'introduction' was worrisome to fans as "Run BTS!" could be on a hiatus for two whole years.
On average, military service for male K-pop stars lasts for 2 years, thus fans have connected that "Run BTS!" might be on a hiatus as the eldest members of BTS might be preparing for their military service.
Nothing has been confirmed yet, as of writing this article.
