According to South Korean label Big Hit Entertainment, the rapper is "currently resting and recovering, following his physician's advice that Suga must undergo a strict and unhindered period of recovery".
Big Hit's statement further elaborated that the 27-year-old had been experiencing "sudden bouts of pain" since an accident in 2012, causing him to seek medical help on several occasions. Despite the treatment, the injury he sustained had started to impact his life and career, prompting the decision to undergo surgery.
Min Yoon-gi, 27, better known by his stage names Suga, Yoongi, and Agust D, debuted as a member of the South Korean pop idol group BTS in 2013.
