BTS' Suga who has been suffering from shoulder issues since 2012 pre-debut days, has gone through yet another surgery for his torn shoulder labrum. On November 6, Bighit Entertainment issued an official statement regarding BTS Suga's health. The rapper has gone through a surgery on November 3 following his physician's advice. The statement mentions that he must go through "a strict and unhindered period of recovery." BTS is currently working on their current album 'BE' which will be released on November 20.

The statement says Suga's shoulder was injured in an accident in 2012 before his debut in BTS and in 2013, he was diagnosed with a dislocated shoulder. His shoulder pain continued through the years and in 2019, he was further diagnosed with "posterior labral tear of his left shoulder" which means that the cartilage around his left shoulder joint has been torn. Since then, the 27-years-old rapper and songwriter has continued receiving various treatment for his torn shoulder to prevent his shoulder from affecting his activities.

The statement said, “SUGA has long suffered from a wide range of symptoms including the inability to raise his arms high and sudden bouts of pain. He underwent constant rehabilitation and treatment during his career, but unfortunately his symptoms did not improve measurably. These symptoms have appeared with increasing frequency in recent years, affecting SUGA not only on the stage but in the course of his daily life as well.”

“SUGA also felt that it was important for him to restore himself to good health to prepare for his mandatory military service as well as his post-service musical career. After extensive discussion with the company, the decision was made to undergo the surgical procedure. Following the surgery, SUGA will be unable to participate in most official activities so that he may fully focus on his recovery. Once doctors determine that the site of the operation has healed sufficiently, SUGA will begin physical therapy so that he can ultimately return to the stage healthy and fully recovered.”

SUGA wishes his fans to know that he is “very aware of how concerned and worried the fans must be, and knows how sad the fans must feel.” He said, “Please understand this time as being my chance to prepare to meet you again strong and healthy, and even if I must be away for a short while please wait for me to come back to you.”

BTS has always been very caring towards their Army, so in true BTS  fashion, V aka Kim Taehyung came online in their fansite Weverse to show his support to the Army and let them know that their beloved Min Yoongi is recovering well. He said, “yoongi-hyung has finished his surgery well and he is resting right now. yoongi: i love you”. Taehyung also asked fans not to worry too much, as an Army posted the conversation, “he said not to worry too much ㅎㅎ he says that hurts even more”.



The Internet is flooded with #GetWellSoonYoongi posts as fans around the world are pouring their hearts out in wishing him a speedy recovery. One such fan wrote, “yoongi went live and play his guitar before his surgery just for us because he knew he won't be able to do this after his surgery? This man is literally a living angel...we don't deserve him. #getwellsoonyoongi” Another fan said, "Yoongi had his shoulder surgery and we all know that he’s been suffering with this for a long time now. I’m really hoping and praying for his fast recovery :( we will wait for you min yoongi. pls get well soon!”

Another fan wrote, “I hope yoongi's recovery will go well and that he will take all the time he needs. his health needs to come first!! yoongs, take care and rest well!! we will wait until you come back healthy and keep cheering for you as always!! ♡ #GetWellSoonYoongi”. While yet another posted, “yoongi protection squad let's assemble!!”#GetWellSoonYoongi."





Fans are also wondering how he pulled off some of the hardest and sharpest choreographies of all time. “YOU ARE TELLING ME HE DID ALL THIS WITH A TORN SHOULDER???? yoongi is the strongest”.


Here's hoping Daechichwita's Agust D recovers the fastest to show even a fiercer version of him as a fan says, "I know he is our strong guy... he will get well very soon.. we are with him all the time... we will always wait for u.. ur health is more important than everything else. #GetWellSoonYoongi"
