As 2016 draws to a close, there are a number of upcoming concerts and festivals - such as the SBS Gayo Daejun - to see out the year, many of which will involve BTS. However, it appears that only six members will be able to make it for those upcoming performances.
In a new tweet from BTS' agency Big Hit Entertainment, it was revealed that Suga will sit out of all end-of-year performances due to an ear injury.
Here's a translation of Big Hit's message:
“On December 20, Suga tripped over the edge of a door sill in their dorm and injured his ear. He checked with a cosmetic surgeon immediately, and was given doctor’s orders to stay away from any behaviors that could stress the wounded area. While there were no abnormalities in the wound the next day, the doctor said that it’s best if he does not participate in practices or performances for one week in order for the wound to heal nicely. Thus Suga will be focusing on recovering and resting during that period.
“The six members will be performing without Suga during the end-of-the-year performances. We apologize to fans who have been waiting a long time for BTS’s performances, and we will try our best so that all the members of BTS finish the year in a healthy state. Thank you.”
Get well soon, Suga, and we'll see you next year when you're good and healthy!
