Army, this is the update you’ve been waiting for. The guys of BTS aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, as they just re-upped their contracts with their label, Big Hit Entertainment. Oh yeah, and did we mention it’s for another seven years?
All seven members of the group — RM, Jimin, J-Hope, Suga, Jin, V, and Jungkook — have extended and renewed their contracts with Big Hit through the year 2026. Their current contracts are set to expire next year, but now we have confirmation they’re not going anywhere and will be making music together for a long time. Their label is obviously just super excited to continue working with the group.
“It is our philosophy that we should cater the best to artists who’s achieving an unprecedented global success. After the thorough discussion with seven members of BTS, we decided to renew the contract before the world tour to ensure more stable, long-term activities,” Big Hit Entertainment said in a statement.
And the guys are looking forward to creating more music for those who mean the most to them: their fans.
“We respect our mentor, producer [and Big Hit founder] Bang Si-Hyuk who has continued to show us a vision for our future from even before debut and have helped us form our perspective of the world and music. With Big Hit Entertainment’s support, we’ll continue to strive to give our best for fans all around the world,” BTS said in a statement to Billboard.
How cute are they? It’s crazy to think the K-Pop singers released their first album together, 2 Cool 4 Skool, back in 2013 and by the time their new contracts end, it will be a solid 13 years later. They’re currently in the midst of legit taking over the world, out on the Love Yourself World Tour. They’ve been making history too, as they were the first K-pop group to perform a concert at a US stadium, and speak at the United Nations. These are accomplishments that are nothing short of legendary and we have a feeling BTS is just getting started with all they’re about to do.
