BIGHIT MUSIC issued a statement on the fan community platform Weverse around noon KST on January 3, 2022, assuring fans of BTS member SUGA’s full recovery from COVID-19. SUGA’s quarantine ended on January 3 at 12:00 KST, according to the announcement, and he is now free to resume his normal activities without showing any symptoms.
Following his return from the United States on December 23, 2021, SUGA was diagnosed with COVID-19. SUGA had previously tested negative for COVID-19, therefore the positive test results were believed to have arrived during his self-quarantine.
BTS had traveled to the United States for the 2021 American Music Awards and a four-day concert at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium, which was a huge success. Following the event, Big Hit announced that they will be taking a break from work. After the concert, Jin, Jimin, and Jungkook quickly returned to South Korea, while V and J-Hope went on vacation to Hawaii, while RM and Suga had other plans.
While in quarantine, the BTS member said on Weverse, “I am alright:) Don’t worry too much.” to comfort fans. SUGA commented on Weverse shortly after the statement, saying “cleared from quarantine” with a laughing emoji.
