This is Big Hit 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 the physician’s 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.
BTS’s live-streaming online concert “BTS PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE” takes place at 6:30 p.m. KST on October 24.
We wish V a swift recovery!
BTS Storming Performance
BTS stormed onto the stage for their first concert since last year, breaking through barriers both literally and metaphorically. Though they entered through the gates broken down with their own powerful singing of ‘ON,’ RM, Jin, SUGA, j-hope, Jimin, and Jungkook entered via the gates broken down with their own powerful singing of ‘ON.’ Following the news of his muscle pain, Member V came in from a side chair.
The BTS carriage continued in the performance for ‘Boy With Luv,’ hopping from a bed to a huge sofa in ‘Life Goes On,’ offering us a vibrant view into the life of a fan. The members’ passion was evident, and the Dynamite and Butter sets were like a breath of fresh air. We were driven to a celebration in their style, with live trumpets blasting in line with the group’s larger-than-life objective.
