BTS members announced on June 14 that they are taking a break to work on solo projects.

SEOUL, South Korea — A solitary tear trickled down her cheek as she eked out a faint, squeaky sob. Erika Titus shared a video on TikTok on Tuesday with the message "Yes, I heard the news" as the only background.

She was, of course, reacting to the news that BTS, the hugely successful Korean boy band, would be taking a vacation indefinitely.

Titus was not alone in her despair: her video received over half a million likes, with her fans sharing their reactions to the news in the comments.

"I discovered out at work and practically had to leave early," one fan said, followed by three crying emojis.

BTS' management company, HYBE, issued a statement indicating the group would "launch independent projects while remaining active as a group," rather than taking a break
