Last month Big Hit Entertainment, the management company behind K-pop giants BTS, confirmed that the group would be taking an "extended period of rest" from their hectic work schedule. That break, it seems, lasted just one month with BTS spotted filming over the weekend at Seoul’s Incheon International Airport.

The group's break was announced as a chance for the members to take "a chance to enjoy the ordinary lives of young people in their 20s, albeit briefly." That brief period turned out to be just four weeks.

BTS's Love Yourself: Speak Yourself tour hits Saudi Arabia on October 11 followed by three homecoming shows on October 26, 27, and 29.

During BTS's month off Big Hit announced that a TV series based on the band’s pre-fame lives was in development, and is scheduled to air in late 2020.
