Last week, Suga shared his first post after contracting the coronavirus. He wrote on Weverse, "I’m really okay (smiling face emojis). Please don’t worry too much!"
Suga contracted the virus right before Christmas after returning to South Korea from the United States, where the Boys performed their 'Permission To Dance on Stage'. Meanwhile, two other members of the band, RM and Jin, are being held in isolation after testing positive on December 25.
