Each of the verified accounts attracted more than 4 million followers within hours, with singer V Kim Taehyung picking up the most by 3 p.m. GMT at 12.4 million.
Big Hit Music, which manages the band, announced on social media on Monday that the singers would be taking some time off to “recharge with creative energy,” with the intention of returning to work in early 2022.
