Three members of K-Pop group BTS test positive for Covid after returning to Korea from U.S.

RM and Suga did not exhibit any symptoms, while Jin showed a light fever and flu-like symptoms. They are self-isolating at home as per the country’s health guidelines, the agency said.

Three members of K-pop juggernaut BTS have been infected with the coronavirus, according to their management agency, after the seven-member group returned this month to South Korea from the United States, where it held its first concerts since the beginning of the pandemic, the Washington Post reports.

RM, 27, and Jin, 29, tested positive for the virus Saturday evening, the Big Hit Music agency said in a statement. Another member, Suga, 28, was diagnosed Friday, a day after returning from the United States, according to the agency. All three had been in quarantine after returning from the United States and had not come in contact with any other members of the group.

RM, Jin and Suga join a growing list of entertainers, athletes and politicians who have announced they tested positive for the coronavirus in recent months, wreaking havoc on sporting events and live performances. Big Hit Music said all three BTS members who tested positive received their second dose of a coronavirus vaccine in August.

RM and Suga did not exhibit any symptoms, while Jin showed a light fever and flu-like symptoms. They are self-isolating at home as per the country’s health guidelines, the agency said.
