‘PTD on Stage - Las Vegas’: BTS Jin will be missing from certain performances due to surgery
Fans of BTS are aware by now that despite him getting surgery for the index finger of his left hand, the eldest member of BTS, Jin (Seokjin) showed his strong will as he stated that he would very much be a part of BTS’ Grammy 2022 appearance as well as the four-day Las Vegas concerts that will start from April 8. Jin was recently seen wearing a cast over his left hand and was seen hiding his hand during many of the press shoots and Instagram posts over the past few weeks due to the same injury.
While Jin seems to be recovering, the injury itself had initially caused concern amongst fans. As he was recovering from the surgery, Jin, despite being in Las Vegas, USA could not attend public events with BTS members and was also the only BTS member to skip the Silk Sonic concerts that the other six members attended. Not only that but, fans also saw how Jin sit down a major chunk of BTS’ iconic 2022 Grammy performance because of his hand injury only to join the boys for the final chorus of ‘Butter.’
BTS Jin to skip some concert performances
Now as BTS is set to start their highly anticipated Las Vegas concert, Big Hit Music has reported that Jin will have to sit out some of the extremely energetic performances at the concert so as to not injure himself further. Throughout the history of BTS concerts, members like Jimin, V (Taehyung), and Jungkook have all taken much-needed breaks during performances because of their health conditions.
On April 8, Big Hit Music reported via Weverse that Jin had received surgery in May 2022 due to an injury in the index finger of his left hand. Now, after medical consultation, it was advised that Jin should be careful about radical movements. It was also stated that Jin, who is strongly insistent on performing on stage, will have to refrain from participating on stages that involve a lot of movements and dancing at the four-day ‘Permission to Dance on Stage’ concert in Las Vegas.
BTS Jin faces the risk of reoperation
Fans of BTS also noticed that the condition of Jin’s left hand is pretty serious as fans could see how he was in a lot of pain just after accidentally bumping his hand during BTS’ post-Grammy 2022 VLive. Big Hit Music also reported that if Jin does not take care of his injury, he will risk more damage to the tendon of the index finger.
It was stated that this injury, in particular, is followed with a risk of reoperation if the injured person moves excessively or receives a shock while recovering. This is why, so as to not cause a re-injury to his finger or increase the threat of a re-operation, Jin will only participate in performances that involve limited physical movement. It was also finally stated that Jin’s performances on stage may be limited.
