BTS's RM and Jin test positive for COVID-19

AKP STAFF

On December 25 evening KST, BTS's agency BIGHIT released a statement announcing BTS members RM and Jin have been tested positive for COVID-19. Fellow member Suga was also tested positive earlier on December 24.

Post returning from their activities in the United States on December 17, RM underwent PCR testing and was tested negative before he entered self-quarantine as per COVID-19 contro procedures. However, his PCR test taken just before his scheduled release from quarantine turned out to be positive. Meanwhile, he is not exhibiting any symptoms.

On the other hand, Jin returned to Korea earlier than RM did on December 6 and underwent necessary PCR testing and self-quarantine and was tested negative throughout his self-quarantine period. However, after feeling flu-like symptoms this afternoon, he took another PCR test and it turned out positive. As he is experiencing some mild symptoms, it is said that he is undergoing treatment at home.

The full statement reads:

"Hello.

This is BIGHIT MUSIC.

BTS members RM and Jin were diagnosed with COVID-19 on the evening of Saturday, December 25.

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 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 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.

Thank you."
