K-Pop boy band BTS slay their choreography on stage. Every. Single. Time. But ahead of their London show, one of the BTS’ members had an accident that might take him out of busting out those dance moves for a while.
Jungkook suffered a foot injury and has been advised to refrain from taking part of the K-Pop band’s choreography. Read Big Hit Entertainment’s statement on Twitter below:
“Ladies and gentlemen, we regret to announce that an issue has occurred that may affect the performance of one of the members of BTS scheduled to appear tonight, Jung Kook.
Approximately two hours ago following the rehearsal and sound check, Jung Kook was lightly stretching in the waiting room when he collided with floor furnishings and suffered an injury to his heel. Medical staff immediately responded and performed the necessary treatment. The opinion of the medical team is that while the injury is not serious, performing choreography may do further damage to the injured area.
Following the advice of the medical staff, Jung Kook will take part of the performance tonight but remain seated without choreography.
We sincerely apologize to all of our fans who have been eagerly awaiting tonight’s performance, and ask for your understanding.

The BTS ARMY were quick to send an outpouring of love and support for Jungkook and were quick to reassure him they understood the situation and that just hearing his voice would be enough.
Get well soon, Jungkook!
BTS has just wrapped the sold out North American leg of their Love Yourself Tour and is currently in London for the U.K. leg of their world tour. They also won Favorite Social Artist Awards at last night’s American Music Awards.
