The company said it conducted a PCR test after Suka returned from the United States on Thursday, resulting in a positive announcement on Friday morning.
Under the ban in South Korea, Suka went into isolation after being tested and did not communicate with other BTS band members, the report added.
BIGHIT Music reported that Suka had no symptoms until Friday and is currently being “treated at home” according to the country’s health guidelines.
He was fully vaccinated, received two doses of the Covit-19 vaccine, and was found to be negative before leaving the United States. The company added that it would provide full support for Suka’s recovery while cooperating with health officials.
South Korea has forced all international travelers, including Korean nationals, to be isolated for ten days, regardless of their vaccination status.
