SEOUL — K-pop supergroup BTS’ V has become the fifth member of the group to test positive for COVID-19.

The 26-year-old singer, whose original Korean name is Kim Tae-hyung, visited a hospital Tuesday to get a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test after experiencing a mild sore throat and received a positive result, the group’s management agency Big Hit Music said in a statement posted to Weverse.

He completed two rounds of vaccinations and was not presenting any extraordinary symptoms other than a mild fever and sore throat, according to the agency.

“He is currently undergoing treatment at home while waiting for further guidelines from the health care authorities,” it said.
