BTS' Rap Monster will not be performing on the group's two final concerts in Japan. This is due to a minor injury he sustained during their break.

Sad news has come for the Japanese "ARMY" as Rap Monster was not able to perform on BTS' last two nights in Japan. According to Soompi, Big Hit Entertainment explained on Friday, June 30 the reason why in their official Twitter account.

"We write to inform you that BTS member Rap Monster will not be able to participate in the choreography at the Sapporo concerts on their Japan tour," said the agency. According to them, Rap Monster sustained a minor injury on his right foot on Thursday, June 29.

According to the agency, Rap Monster banged his right toe on a piece of furniture in his room. BTS members are lodged within the area of Sapporo, Japan where they were set to perform their "2017 BTS Live Trilogy Episode III: The Wings Tour."

Big Hit Entertainment also added that Rap Monster's toenail on his little toe on the right foot was lifted, preventing him to walk normally. The attending physician also advised the BTS member not to dance as the wound was still fresh.

This did not mean that Rap Monster won't be at the concerts though. He still attended BTS' concerts on July 1 and 2 where he stood inside the Makomanai Ice Arena, did his best and sang his parts.

"We sincerely apologize for worrying all the fans who have been waiting for BTS' Sapporo concerts," said Big Hit Entertainment. The Japanese fans were kind of sad not to see Rap Monster dance, but wished nothing more for him to recover.

Sapporo is BTS' last stop for their "2017 BTS Live Trilogy Episode III: The Wings Tour," reports Pop Crush. The group is now on their way home after performing in 17 cities in 10 countries.
