During his broadcast on Wednesday, Jungkook shared with fans how much he has grown through his recent injury during the band’s “Love Yourself” concert tour in London. Jungkook made headlines after injuring his foot before the London performance throughout which he was forced to remain seated. After tearing up on stage, Jungkook said he “shouldn’t have shown (his) weak side,” regretting that it was “unprofessional” of him to do so. “Even my parents came to see me that day and I guess it made me quite upset not being able to show my best self,” the youngest of BTS said.

He said that his parents came to visit him in Europe and had a family dinner before the show. “My parents wished me happy birthday and I was beyond happy I got to celebrate with my family and my bandmates,” he said.

V held a solo broadcast Sunday morning to give fans update on how he is doing. V worried fans during the band’s Paris show as he was unable to sing to his full capacity due to terrible cold. During the 20 minutes of broadcast, V munched on take-out dinner which seemed to consist of noodles and a can of coke. Although his broadcast was disrupted by bad internet connection, that didn’t stop fans from showering it with tens of thousands of comments.
