Big Hit Music said in a fan community Weverse notice earlier in the day, "Jimin did not show any special symptoms during his hospitalization," adding, "At the beginning of the hospitalization, he showed mild sore throat symptoms, but received medical staff's opinion that the surgical site was recovering stably."

"Jimin is currently resting and stabilizing after being discharged from the hospital," he added.
