BTS RM will start a new career outside the music industry.
ARMYs got worried after reports about BTS taking a hiatus emerged. But instead of hiatus, the group decided to lie low in making group projects to allow its members to explore solo projects.
In the past months, the seven members indeed found new ventures and established collaborations with other artists. For RM’s part, he will mark his debut in another industry.

The Dictionary of Useless Human Knowledge will serve as the sequel of the first two shows on the channel: Th Dictionary of the Useless Knowledge (which aired from 2017 to 2018) and The Dictionary of Useless Crime Knowledge (released in 2021). The new show, on the other hand, will focus on figures in the fields of physics, forensic medicine, literature, and astronomy.
RM’s Solo Endeavors
The program became the new addition to RM’s fruitful solo career.
Outside of BTS, the rapper has already worked on his solo music starting in 2015. At that time, he released his mixtape RM. He then followed it with Mono in 2018. As of press time, he has not announced when he will release new music again.
While waiting, ARMYs took their time to applaud the leader for how he differentiated BTS from other groups years ago.
During a fan sign event (via AllKpop), a fan asked RM: “What is one thing you are proud to say that BTS is best at this compared to other boy groups?"
He confidently wrote “attitude” on the sheet, and he gained praise for believing in his members and understanding their differences.
