Earlier this month, Suga underwent shoulder surgery to treat chronic discomfort from a past injury. As a trainee, he was injured in a motor vehicle collision while working a part-time delivery job. Suga appeared at BTS’s comeback countdown via a video message, but he was unable to join them for in-person promotions.

On November 20, BTS invited reporters to BTS Global Press Conference “BE”, a live-streamed broadcast. Here they fielded questions about their new album BE, their mainstream success, subunits, behind-the-scenes roles, the meaning of each new song, military service, and more.

During a photo-op for the conference, the members left a gap for Suga between and Jin.

This small but meaningful gesture sent a heartwarming message: BTS is seven.
