“We did some recharging and brought more fun back with us. We hope you’ll look forward to it,” adds vocalist Jin. 

On 16th August at 9 p.m. KST on Weverse and VLIVE, the latest special episode of Run BTS will make its debut before streaming on YouTube two hours later.

Run BTS episodes typically consist of a number of themed games or tasks in which the boyband members compete against one another, either in small teams or individually. There are also occasionally, special episodes broadcast to coincide with Korean holidays and other occasions. A wide range of activities, including cooking, gaming and design challenges, have been featured in previous editions.

Despite being on hiatus so that each member may concentrate on personal projects, BTS still seems to be relatively active, as seen by this week's debut of the ‘Run BTS’ episode and the release of a joint project with Snoop Dogg and Benny Blanco.
