BTSFans send their best wishes to Jimin.

Big Hit Music records that the singer was tested for COVID-19. He has also had surgery for acute appendicitis. 

Weverse was notified by the company that Jimin had been experiencing mild throat pains the day before. He went to a nearby hospital’s emergency room, where he was examined and diagnosed. Jimin had surgery on Jan. 31, according to the doctor.

Big Hit Music, citing Jimin’s medical staff, said the surgery was successful and that the 26-year-old will now spend a few days receiving in-patient treatment for COVID-19 postoperative care. While the message noted he still has his sore throat, it also assured fans that he is making speedy recovery and that he was not in contact with his bandmates—V, Jungkook, Suga, Jin, RM and J-Hope—during the infectious period.
