Following that, on December 27, the BTS member personally reassured fans by posting an update on the fan community platform Weverse, saying, “I’m absolutely fine:) Don’t worry too much!” “I’m totally OK as well,” RM responded to SUGA’s post the next day.
BTS’s leader has also been posting updates on his Instagram account since then. RM also uploaded a selfie with friends and a lovely picture of fellow member Jimin, captioned the post “There are no more pics left..” in addition to his latest magazine session shots. J-Hope replied teasingly, “I have a picture of Namjoonie,” and then proceeded to post a polaroid shot of RM to his Instagram account. In response, RM retweeted the story and suggested that he purchase a Polaroid camera as well.
In true Jin manner, the eldest member also comforted fans by responding on BTS member J-Instagram Hope’s photo with “Jwehope..” Fans heaved a collective sigh of relief as the simple one-word reply was so Jin.
We wish a speedy recovery and good health to SUGA, RM, and Jin.
