While solo career rumors swirl and we're guessing they'll get in some overdue quality time with family and friends, the boys recently shed more light on what they've got planned for hiatus.
And it's not what you might have been expecting, either.
In an interview with Beats 1 Radio, Liam Payne talked about how great the time off will be, explaining, "I actually think having a break will bring nothing but better music and us with more energy to perform and give more to our craft...it's gonna be nice and we're all gonna go and explore music a little bit more."
The interviewer had some career suggestions for them too, throwing out options like a veterinarian, hand model (Louis said no because "I bite me nails" and Harry says he's a "bit boney"), DJ, and estate agent. Harry thinks he might have a knack for that last one, while Liam admitted he'll probably be "tattooed and unemployed."
Whatever they're getting up to, the fandom will def be missing them!
