Member of BTS Jimin treated for appendicitis and Covid | BTS

BTS team member Jimin has had “acute appendicitis” surgery and has also tested positive for coronavirus, his label said. The management agency of Big Hit Music said the 26-year-old K-pop star experienced a sore stomach and throat on Sunday afternoon.

The singer and dancer whose full name is Park Ji-min later tested positive for PCR. Big Hit Music has confirmed that he did not come into close contact with his six band mates while he was contagious.

A statement posted on the Korean internet platform Weverse says: “According to medical staff, the operation was a success and Jimin is now recovering from surgery. He will be hospitalized for Covid-19 in conjunction with post-operative care for several days.

“He is currently suffering from a mild sore throat, but is recovering quickly and has had no contact with other members in the infectious stage.

“The company places the health of the artists as our top priority and we will do everything we can to help Jimin recover quickly. We will also work diligently with requests and guidance from health authorities. “

Three other team members, RM, Jin and Suga tested positive for the coronavirus in December and have all recovered completely since then.

Since debuting in 2013, BTS has gained worldwide recognition for their music and activism, which included giving a speech to the United Nations and addressing anti-Asian racism.

The band has released numerous albums and EPs, including two UK numbers, and last year collaborated with the rock band Coldplay on the song My Universe.
