This is BIGHIT MUSIC.
We would like to provide the following information regarding the performance of BTS member V as part of today’s “‘BTS PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE”.
V experienced pain in his calf muscles during rehearsal on the evening of October 23, and visited a nearby hospital for examination and treatment. It was the opinion of the medical personnel that while there was no issue affecting the bones in his legs, he should refrain from vigorous movement such as choreography or stage performance for the time being.
While the artist himself strongly wished to participate in the performance in full, our company has decided to follow physician advice and minimize V’s movements during today’s “BTS PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE”. As a result, V will take part in the performance while seated and without choreography. We ask for your understanding.
We will continue to place the highest priority on the health and safety of our artists, and strive to ensure that all the members of BTS can meet their fans in full health.
Following the announcement, ARMY (BTS fans) took to social media to send their support and well wishes to the BTS member, trending #GetBetterSoonTae on Twitter.
