BTS’ RM and Jin were also diagnosed with COVID-19.
On the 25h, Big Hit Music released the following statement on Weverse.
“Hello, this is Big Hit Music.
After returning on Friday the 17th from the United States following his personal schedule as part of his official vacation period, RM immediately underwent PCR testing, was found negative, and entered into self-quarantine in his home as mandated by COVID-19 control procedures. However, he underwent PCR testing today before his scheduled release from quarantine and was found to be positive for COVID-19; he is currently exhibiting no particular symptoms.
Jin returned to Korea on Monday, December 6th, and underwent PCR testing immediately after his return and again before his release from self-quarantine, and was found negative on both occasions. However, feeling flu-like symptoms this afternoon he underwent PCR testing and was found positive for COVID-19 late this evening. He is exhibiting mild symptoms including light fever and is undergoing self-treatment at home.
RM and Jin both completed their second round of COVID-19 vaccinations in late August, and are currently undergoing self-treatment at home as per health authority guidelines. Neither member had any contact with other members after their return to Korea.
Our company will continue to provide support for the rapid recovery of RM and Jin, placing our highest priority on the health and safety of our artists. We will continue to cooperate fully with the requests and guidelines of healthcare authorities.
Meanwhile, their groupmate Suga was also diagnosed with COVID-19 a day earlier. The artist has gone into self-quarantine immediately after returning home from the States. He had no contact with the other members.
