BTS are scheduled to make their highly anticipated comeback on October 10, but before that happens, the boys will participate in a number pre-comeback events, including the recently-concluded Busan One Asia Festival. Sadly however, the group will be missing Rap Monster for these events due to injury.
In a recent statement from BTS' agency Big Hit Entertainment, Rap Monster started feeling pain in his leg whilst practicing for the group's comeback and immediately went to see an orthopedist. While no serious injury was detected, there is a high possibility of a stress fracture in his leg, and it was recommended that Rap Monster avoid any strenuous activity until he recovers. As such, he will sit out of BTS' pre-comeback performances in order to focus on his recovery.
While Rap Monster won't be performing, he will be at various events with the rest of BTS, mainly as an MC.
Get better soon Rap Monster, and we'll see you back onstage when you're good and healthy!
