A total of three members of the K-pop superstar group BTS have now been infected with Covi-19 after returning from abroad.
As reported by The Guardian, the group’s management company, BIG HIT music, made a statement regarding the news.
The statement shared that Suga was first to test positive on Friday (Dec 24) during his self-quarantine, after taking a PCR test upon his return to Korea on Thursday (Dec 23).
Just a day after, the management announced that RM and Jin were also diagnosed with Covid-19 on Saturday evening.

Big Hit gave details about each member's health, noting that RM and Suga have shown no specific symptoms, while Jin is dealing with mild symptoms such as a slight fever.
"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," the statement read. "However, he underwent PCR testing [Saturday] before his scheduled release from quarantine and was found to be positive for COVID-19."
The statement continued, "Jin returned to Korea on Monday, December 6 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 [Saturday] afternoon he underwent PCR testing and was found positive for COVID-19 late this evening."
Big Hit music went to share that all seven members are fully vaccinated, having received two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine. Suga, RM and Jin are currently being treated at home in accordance with health guidelines and they have not had any contact with other BTS members (V, Jungkook, Jimin & J-Hope) after their return to Korea.
Don’t you worry, ARMYs! In the meantime, let’s show our support to Suga, RM and Jin.
We wish the boys a speedy recovery.
