Just a month back, K-pop band BTS had announced that they were going on an "official long-term break since their debut" in 2013. The break did not last long, much to the relief of their fans.  Five weeks after the band announced its long break, BTS is now back in action as they were spotted at Seoul's Incheon Airport jetting off to a foreign location. 

In a statement published by the South Korean news agency Yonhap, the group's management, Big Hit Entertainment, said, "Wrapping up its extended vacation, BTS departed overseas this morning for an engagement abroad."

While the exact reason for their travel is not known, media reports suggest that the seven-member band were travelling to shoot for a reality show. 

The news of their return created quite a buzz on social media, as several fans stormed the Internet with their reactions, making #BTSisback trending on social media.

One of the users shared the picture of a member of the band from an award ceremony. "When you finally have a purpose cause BTS is back #BTSisBack," he wrote.
