BTS is back!

A month after announcing a hiatus to enjoy "rest and relaxation," the K-Pop superstars' label, Big Hit Entertainment, confirmed to ABC News that the boys are back at work.

There were no other details as of now on what they'll be doing next, but local Korean news outlet Yonhap reports the group will travel abroad for an "engagement."

In mid-August, the prolific band announced its first break in six years.

"BTS will be going on an official and extended period of rest and relaxation," Big Hit Entertainment said at the time. "This [break] will provide them with a chance to enjoy the ordinary lives of young people in their 20s, albeit briefly."

Next month, the group's Love Yourself: Speak Yourself tour will visit Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and Seoul, South Korea.

The award-winning seven-man group has released a slew of albums, EPs and movies in the past six years, and have sold some 15 million records. Their last three albums debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, making them the first band since the Beatles to score three chart-topping albums in less than year.

Their most successful U.S. single so far has been "Boy with Luv," a collaboration with Halsey that was released earlier this year.
