Group management announced their diagnosis following their various performances which took place in the United States.
Which members of BTS have tested positive for Covid19?
On Saturday, December 25, 2021, three members of BTS tested positive for Covid-19 after returning to South Korea.

RM was asymptomatic, with Jin showing mild symptoms, including a mild fever.
Suga is also asymptomatic and is in quarantine at his home in South Korea.
Is BTS taking a break?
The break from BTS has nothing to do with the diagnosis of the three limbs.
In a Twitter statement on December 5, 2021, BIGHIT MUSIC made an announcement regarding an “official BTS long vacation notice.”
“We would like to inform you that BTS plans to take a second official extended rest period since their premiere in 2019, after completing their scheduled official events of BTS authorization to dance on stage– LA and the 2021 Jingle Ball Tour, “the Tweet read.
The seven band members, including Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook, will be taking the vacation.
The statement stressed that the group has remained “active” in order to “engage with fans” in 2020 and 2021 amid the coronavirus pandemic.
What did BTS say about the coronavirus pandemic?
As the Covid-19 pandemic has caused global calamity, the K-pop group gives it credit for inspiring them.
After their Map of the Soul Tour was canceled for security reasons, the band took advantage of their free time to switch brands and start singing entirely in English.
As a result of their decisions, their three English-language songs “Dynamite”, “Butter” and “Permission to Dance” all rose to No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 charts.
Despite the songs’ success, some of the band members revealed to Billboard that they didn’t agree 100% with the idea at first.
Jin revealed that at first he felt singing in English was unnatural.
âThe English I learned in class was so different from the English for song,â he said. “I had to erase everything in my head first.”
RM added that while he didn’t like the idea, he understood there was “no alternative” and admitted it was a crucial way to keep the band’s buzz alive.
