Min Yoon-gi, better known as Suga is a South Korean rapper, songwriter, and record producer who goes by the stage name Suga.
Suga is managed by Big Hit Music, and he made his debut in 2013 as a member of the South Korean pop idol group BTS.
After returning from in-person concerts in the United States, SUGA tested positive for the coronavirus, the group’s management announced on Friday.
SUGA had his second COVID-19 immunization in August, had not recently come into touch with any other members, and was demonstrating no signs, according to the company.
“He is currently administering self-care at home,” it said in a statement. “We see the artists’ health as our top priority, and will do everything we can to aid SUGA in his speedy recovery.”
Big Hit Entertainment stated a day after Suga’s diagnosis that group leader RM and Jin had also tested positive for COVID-19 after returning from the United States.
“After returning on Friday the 17th from the United States following his personal schedule as part of his official vacation period, RM immediately underwent PCR testing, was found negative and entered into self-quarantine in his home as mandated by COVID-19 control procedures.
“However, he underwent PCR testing today before his scheduled release from quarantine and was found to be positive for COVID-19,” Big Hit said on Saturday.
RM and Jin are both undergoing self-treatment at home, according to Big Hit.
“Neither member had any contact with other members (J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook) after their return to South Korea.
“We will continue to cooperate fully with the requests and guidelines of healthcare authorities,” the statement ended
