BTS fans have long wondered why its members never had separate media accounts, but that has changed after the K-pop septet announced an "extended period of rest."

Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook now have their very own Instagram accounts.

Each BTS member has amassed about 20 million followers since joining the platform on Monday, but V currently has the most with 22.6 million as of this article being posted.

If you're curious what the guys are posting about, the BTS boys are sharing glimpses of what they do in their spare time and expressing their individual tastes and interests.

Comments are currently limited on all their accounts so only those they follow can react to their posts, which -- unsurprisingly -- are only the other members of BTS.

BTS' management company, Big Hit Music, previously announced that the band is taking a break "after they complete their official scheduled events."

The company stressed that the group is not breaking up, but that a hiatus was needed to give the group "a chance to get re-inspired and recharge with creative energy." They will also be spending the holidays with their families.

BTS fans can look forward to news that the band is preparing for a concert and the release of a new album in March "that will mark the beginning of a 'new chapter'" for them.
