BTS’ RM recovering from deviated septum surgery

February 5, 2018

RM, leader of the popular boy band BTS, has recently undergone surgery for a deviated septum, his management agency, Big Hit, said Monday.

A deviated septum is a condition where the nasal septum — the bone and cartilage that divide the nasal cavity of the nose — is shifted off center, making breathing difficult.

“RM received the surgery because he experienced difficulty in breathing through his nose and leading his daily life,” a Big Hit official said. “He was briefly hospitalized and was recently discharged. He is now recovering well.”
