With BTS’s final two stops on the Japan leg of their world concert tour coming up, Rap Monster will unfortunately be able to join the group in their choreography at the shows due to a minor injury.
On June 30, Big Hit Entertainment posted the following message to their Twitter:
“Hello, this is Big Hit Entertainment.
“We write to inform you that BTS member Rap Monster will not be able to participate in the choreography at the Sapporo concerts on their Japan tour.
“On June 29, Rap Monster was resting at their lodgings in the Sapporo area when he hit his foot on the corner of a piece of furniture in his room, and injured the little toe on his right foot. He immediately received emergency treatment at a local hospital, but he was told by the physician that he should refrain from activity that would cause pain or strain because his toenail is lifted.
“He has no injuries other than the one on his toe, and his health is good overall. However, it has been decided that he will not be participating in the choreography at the concerts in order to follow the advice of the physician, who said it would be best for him to not dance in order to allow the injury to heal.
“Therefore, the six members (without Rap Monster) will be performing the choreography as usual at the concerts on July 1 and 2 in Sapporo, and Rap Monster will be on stage with them too and do his best to perform.
“We sincerely apologize for worrying all the fans who have been waiting for BTS’ Sapporo concerts, and we’ll due our best to ensure that the BTS members can wrap up their Wings Tour without any issues.
“From Big Hit Entertainment.”
Get well soon, Rap Monster!
