BTS Members finally completed their COVID-19 vaccines, cancelled activities to resume
Big Hit Music, the management company who handles BTS, stated on September 14 that the vaccination was carried out in connection with the group's special activities and schedules for overseas promotions.
They added that they are now preparing a new performance in an achievable schedule and possible location.
Another announcement will be released when the performance schedule and location is finally confirmed.
According to HYBE, a subsidiary label of Big Hit Music, less than 100 people of their staff have also recently completed their COVID-19 vaccine.
Big Hit Music made a cautious stand because it is a personal decision on whether the staff wanted to get the vaccine or not. Along with the staff, BTS members also completed their vaccinations.
Still, the decision whether to hold concerts in overseas locations is still under discussion. However, it is known that there are no confirmations about the COVID-19 situation where the number cases are gradually small.
