SEOUL, South Korea — K-pop superstar group BTS is taking an extended break to "enjoy the ordinary lives of young people in their 20s, albeit briefly," their agency said Monday.

According to the company's website, BTS is scheduled to perform in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and Seoul in October

Big Hit Entertainment said a concert Sunday in Seoul was the group's last scheduled performance before the seven members take "vacations" for the first time since their 2013 debut.
