On September 30th, Big Hit Entertainment shared on their official Twitter page that unfortunately, BTS’ leader Rap Monster will be sitting out activities due to recent health issues. On the 29th, the rapper was feeling pain while rehearsing new choreography for the group’s upcoming second full-length album. Thankfully there were no signs of serious injury, but Rap Mon will be taking it easy to alleviate the symptoms. The leader was unable to perform at the Busan One Asia Festival on October 1st but is expected to make a full recovery for the group’s comeback. Take care of your health Rap Monster and get well soon!
Check out the message from Big Hit Entertainment below:
Hello, this is BigHit Entertainment.
BTS was set to make an appearance at the ‘K-Pop World Festival’ in Changwon today. We are letting you know of this (news) because Rap Monster, a member of BTS, was unable to participate in the stage performance.
This past 29th of September, while focusing on practicing new choreography for the second full-length album comeback, Rap Monster felt pain/an ache so he/we immediately visited an orthopedic. We received the diagnosis from the specialist that this could develop into a ‘stress fracture,’ so they advised us that he should refrain from any activity that will put strain on his leg. There are no problems (that can be seen) from the x-ray, and the area above his knee is generally in good condition, but he will be receiving regular physical therapy treatment in order to improve the condition of his leg. The doctor claimed that because this was discovered in the early stage it will heal/become better with rest/a break; so following the doctor’s advice, we are planning on focusing on letting Rap Monster rest and manage his condition for the remainder of the time (before the comeback) so that he can come back in healthy condition.
Therefore, Rap Monster will not be participating in today’s planned stage, but he will be with the BTS members on stage as a joint MC. Additionally, we would like to let you know that for the ‘Busan One Asia Festival’ tomorrow, October 1st, the 6 members will participate in the performance without Rap Monster.
We apologize for causing worry to the many BTS fans who were looking forward to/were waiting for the ‘K-Pop World Festival’ and the ‘Busan One Asia Festival’ performances. We and the BTS members will meet you fans with healthy and bright appearances during the full-length album comeback promotions.

안녕하세요, 빅히트 엔터테인먼트입니다.
오늘 창원에서 열리는 ‘케이팝 월드페스티벌’에 출연 예정인 방탄소년단의 멤버 랩몬스터가 무대 공연에 참여하지 않게 되어 이를 알려드립니다.
지난 29일, 랩몬스터는 정규 2집 컴백을 위해 새로운 안무 연습에 집중하던 중 통증을 느껴 바로 정형외과를 찾았고, ‘피로골절’로 발전할 수 있으니 다리에 무리를 줄 수 있는 행동을 자제해야 한다는 전문의의 진단을 받았습니다. 엑스레이 상으로 이상이 없고 무릎 외 부위나 전반적인 컨디션은 좋은 상태이며, 증상을 개선하기 위해 정기적으로 물리 치료를 받을 예정입니다. 초기에 증상을 발견했기 때문에 휴식을 취하면 좋아진다는 의사의 소견에 따라, 랩몬스터는 건강한 상태로 컴백하기 위해 남은 기간 동안 쉬면서 컨디션 관리에 집중할 계획입니다.
비록 오늘 예정된 무대에 랩몬스터는 참여하지 않지만 공동 MC로서 방탄소년단 멤버들과 행사를 함께 할 예정입니다. 더불어 내일 10월 1일 ‘부산 원아시아 페스티벌’ 무대에도 랩몬스터를 제외한 6명의 멤버가 공연에 참여하게 되었음을 알려드립니다.
방탄소년단의 ‘케이팝 월드 페스티벌’ 과 ‘부산 원아시아 페스티벌’ 무대를 기다리신 많은 팬분들께 심려를 끼쳐드린 점에 대해 사과드립니다. 방탄소년단 멤버들 모두 건강하고 밝은 모습으로 정규 컴백 활동시 팬여러분을 찾아뵙도록 하겠습니다.
