Will BTS Jungkook join group for Grammys 2022? J-Hope recovers from Covid-19
Fans of BTS are on one hand thrilled to be able to see members perform solo at the 2022 Grammy Awards for the first time in front of a live audience while the show could also mark the first win for BTS at the show. But on the other hand, the health issues faced by three of seven BTS members have fans worried. On March 29, BTS’ golden maknae, Jungkook was reported to testing positive for Covid-19 upon his arrival in the US days after rapper J-Hope announced testing positive for the Coronavirus.
Not only Covid-19 but BTS’ oldest member Jin, who recently underwent surgery for his finger is causing concern amongst fans who saw him wear a cast for the first time at the Incheon International Airport on his way to the US with other BTS members. With Jin now wearing a cast and Jungkook down with Covid, fans will be glad to hear that J-Hope has finally recovered from the virus and had been officially released from quarantine. J-Hope tested positive for Covid on March 23 and now, six days since, the member has reported a negative test result for the virus.
J-Hope set to join BTS in Las Vegas, USA
On March 30, HYBE labels reported that J-Hope (Jung Hoseok aka Hobi) had finally recovered from Covid-19 and is finally released from quarantine. It was also reported that the rapper will now join the other BTS members in Las Vegas for the upcoming 2022 Grammys show as well as their ‘Permission to Dance on Stage - Las Vegas’ concert in the US. While reassuring fans who are worried about his health, J-Hope himself took to Weverse to announce his recovery.
J-Hope said, “Army you were worried right? I’m fine. I’m eating well and sleeping well during the quarantine period, so I’ll be better soon.” He continued, “I was diagnosed at an important time in various ways, so I was initially not the only one who was worried. But, since it has already happened, I spent a period of quarantine with the thought of taking medicine, resting well, recovering quickly, and showing a good image.” J-Hope said, “More than anything else, I was anxious thinking fans might have worried a lot.”
Will Jungkook join BTS at the 2022 Grammys?
With J-Hope finally recovering all seven members of BTS will finally be able to perform at the upcoming Las Vegas concert. But, Jungkook testing positive for Covid just days ahead of the Grammy Awards had fans wondering if the maknae would be able to join his hyungs at the show which could be a make-or-break moment for the K-pop boy band as many analysts speculate this could be BTS’ first Grammy award win.
Jungkook tested positive for Covid-19 on March 29 and if his quarantine period is to be considered as per the revised US quarantine regulations, the singer will have to spend at least five days in isolation. This means that Jungkook should be discharged from Covid quarantine by April 3.
With the Grammys show on April 4, just one day after the end of his quarantine period, it is difficult to estimate if the singer will really be able to make it for the performance and the show but fans are hopeful and praying for Jungkook’s speedy recovery.
