Fans of the K-Pop group BTS are going to be so excited to find out that the band has ended their “extended break” after only one month.

Big Hit Entertainment announced that the group would take time off to rest and relax back in August. They previously said, “This period of rest will be an opportunity for the members of BTS, who have relentless driven themselves towards their goal since their debut, to recharge and prepare to present themselves anew as musicians and creators.”

Fans most likely expected the break to last much longer than a month, but Big Hit has confirmed that the guys are ready to hit the stage again.

“Wrapping up its extended vacation, BTS departed overseas this morning for an engagement abroad,” the management team told E! News.

The BTS member took to Weverse on Saturday (August 31) to express his gratitude for all of the birthday love he’s been receiving. (He turned 22 on September 1, which it currently is in South Korea.)

“If our ARMYs didn’t exist, I wouldn’t be as happy as I am on a day like today,” Jungkook wrote (via a fan translation account).

“I searched up all the things that you did for me; thank you so much…There really were so many,” he continued. “Honestly, that I would receive well wishes from so many people (from my beloved ARMYs) is something that still amazes me, and sometimes doesn’t feel real.”

Jungkook added that he usually uploads a cover song on his birthday, but since he wasn’t able to make one this year, he instead revealed a new short original track (sung in English) on BTS‘s Twitter.
