One member of K-pop idol group BTS caused some concern during a recent accident during a live performance.

BTS member Park Jimin reportedly fell off the stage during the group's recent "Japan Official Fan Meeting Undercover Mission" fan meeting, held in Osaka on August 18. The group's agency, Big Hit Entertainment, updated fans after the incident to report that Jimin was uninjured.

Jimin lost his balance due to his blood pressure dropping after a game involved him holding his breath, said Big Hit.

Shortly after the incident, Big Hit posted a statment regarding the issue on its official Twitter account.

"Even though Jimin fell off of the stage, there are no issues with his health," read the tweet.

After falling off the stage Jimin was transported to Sumitomo Hospital, where the cause of the incident was discovered to be related to low blood pressure. Jimin received treatment and returned to BTS's hotel to recover. 

"He is currently resting with mild bruises at the hotel and there are no other problems relating to his health," Big Hit said. "We apologize to the attendees of the fan meeting and to everyone who was worried by this incident."

The company ended the statement on a vow to fans.

"We, Big Hit Entertainment, promise that we will do our best to look out for Jimin and the safety of all of BTS members in the future. Again, we apologize for causing any concern."
