Vocalist Jin and rapper RM of the South Korean pop supergroup BTS have tested positive for COVID-19. The news comes just one day after vocalist Suga was diagnosed with COVID-19.
Big Hit Music made the announcement on Twitter, saying that RM initially tested negative eight days ago upon returning to South Korea following a vacation in the United States. After completing a government-mandated quarantine for overseas travel, he was tested again and showed a positive result, it said. RM is not exhibiting any symptoms as of press time. Jin tested negative twice earlier this month, once when he returned from a U.S. trip and again when he left quarantine. After experiencing symptoms on Saturday, he was again tested and showed a positive result for COVID-19. Big Hit said Jin is experiencing mild symptoms including a light fever and is undergoing self-treatment at home.
