After returning from in-person concerts in the United States, Suga, composer and rapper for K-pop sensation BTS, tested positive for the coronavirus, according to the group’s management.
According to Bit Hit Music, Suga, whose actual name is Min Yoon-gi, was proven to have caught the virus on Friday during his self-quarantine after returning home on Thursday.
According to the firm, he had had his second COVID-19 immunisation in August, had not recently been into touch with any other members, and was not exhibiting any symptoms.
In a statement, it stated, “He is now administering self-care at home.” “The artists’ health is our main priority, and we will do all we can to help SUGA recuperate as quickly as possible.”
Following their first in-person concerts in Los Angeles since the epidemic began, the band has had “a handful of personal engagements across the United States.”
BTS will take a vacation over the holidays to prepare for a new concert and album, according to Big Hit.
BTS has sparked a global K-Pop trend with catchy, uplifting music and dances, as well as lyrics and social activities targeted at encouraging young people, since its debut in 2013.
For the first time in November, the trio took home the top title of artist of the year at the American Music Awards, as well as the best pop song for their summer smash “Butter.”
Last year, as the epidemic spread over the world, BTS postponed and ultimately cancelled their largest worldwide tour, which included roughly 40 performances, opting instead for internet gigs.
(His age is corrected in the tale to 28, not 24.)
