South Korean performers such as Psy - whose 2012 hit Gangnam Style became the first video to top a billion views on YouTube - have previously broken into Western markets, but none have achieved BTS' sustained success.

BTS' manager Big Hit Entertainment said in a statement that the record-breaking K-Pop band would "enjoy their daily lives as normal 20-something young men, albeit briefly", for the first time since they entered the music scene in 2013.

Big Hit also reminded the fans to show consideration for the members' need to rest in case they had a chance encounter with one of them.

"During this time, the members will rest and recharge in their own personal ways during this break".

The doco is a glimpse into BTS' world away from the stage, and features a slew of intimate group discussions and performances from their European tour.

The well-deserved break comes just a little while after the release of the K-pop group's documentary, 'Bring The Soul: The Movie'.

As a descendent of Italian immigrants, Scaramucci has said the highly controversial comments went against American values.

According to the agency, this will be an opportunity for the group to recharge and "present themselves anew as musicians and creators".

BTS has raked in huge profits for the Big Hit Entertainment Group, which plans to release dolls of the band members in collaboration with the company Mattel, which produces the well-known Barbie doll.

The Korean boy band's management officials have issued a statement alerting fans to an upcoming hiatus, and asking them to let the pop idols rest up in peace, so they can all return "refreshed and recharged".

While this is still a tough pill for many of us to swallow, many fans are standing by the band's decision to take a break from the industry.

We're wishing the members of BTS a wonderful vacation and hope they enjoy their much-needed time off! They've even started the hashtag #HappyVacationBTS to further show their support for the boy band. Representatives of the band did not specify how long of a break they'd be taking.

Though they are taking a break from performing as a band, there are certain members who will most likely continue making music for the time being.
