A few hours before the show, Big Hit Entertainment posted on its social media channels that Jungkook would be unable to fully participate in the group’s concert, particularly the dances, due to a heel injury he sustained.
“Approximately two hours ago, following the rehearsal and sound check, Jungkook was lightly stretching in the waiting room when he collided with floor furnishings and suffered an injury to his heel,” the statement reads. The agency assured fans that the injury was not serious. However, for precautionary measures, the idol was asked not to perform the choreography as doing so may worsen the injury.
Because of this, Jungkook sat down during the concert held at The 02 Arena. Despite his situation, the idol continued to give his 101 percent, impressing fans during his “Euphoria” stage and moving along to the group’s choreography in his best capacity.
Jungkook you are the cause of our Euphoria,you gave us happiness and the most beautiful memories in our lives,you are our pride ♥️#WeLoveYouJungKook #GetWellSoonJungkook @BTS_twt pic.twitter.com/A55V4943In

Jimin was also quick to run to the maknae after noticing him crying while the rest of the members were on the extended stage. He also asked fans to cheer on the idol by screaming “I love you, Jungkook!” to which ARMYs willingly did.
The members made sure Jungkook does not feel left out with RM singing to him and Taehyung staying by his side.

In tears, Jungkook sent his apologies to ARMYs for not performing the choreography with the rest of the members due to his injury. On-site fans assured him it was okay, while ARMYs on Twitter used the hashtag #WeLoveYouJungkook to cheer him up and express their admiration to him.
When @BTS_twt was performing Anpanman JK was watching hyungs who went out to extended stage thru screen, his shoulder started shaking & started crying. Millions of thoughts must’ve gone thru his mind. I’m glad Jimin was there with him😭#WeLoveYouJungkook pic.twitter.com/mboZMhYgma

jungkook didn’t have to apologize since it wasn’t obviously his fault, but he did because he always wants to give his absolute best for the fans and he’s devastated that he wasn’t allowed to, he truly is an angel and he deserves the world! #WeLoveYouJungkook pic.twitter.com/xhFTqP1HLL
