BTS j-hope has just held a HUGE party, celebrating the pre-listening of his “Jack in the Box” album. But among these guests and celebrities, BTS Suga was not seen present at j-hope “Jack in the Box” party. So what really happened to Suga, and why didn’t he attend j-hope party? Check out the following details and complete reason.
BTS j-hope Held a HUGE Pre-Listening Party for His “Jack in the Box” Album
Following the release of the “Jack in the Box” album, BTS main dancer and ray of sunshine, j-hope, created one of the most spectacular events in the Korean entertainment industry.
A day before the “Jack in the Box” release date, j-hope conducted a listening party on Floor 19 at the HYBE building in Seoul. Although it’s no wonder since he’s undoubtedly one of Korea’s proud artists, the public was still stunned at the list of guests at j-hope “Jack in the Box” party because it basically involved every prominent name in the Korean entertainment industry.
Why SUGA Was NOT Present at j-hope “Jack in the Box” Party – A COMPLETE Reason
While numerous big names reportedly attended the j-hope “Jack in the Box” party, one BTS member didn’t seem to be present at the party: BTS SUGA. While fans were wondering where SUGA is and why he didn’t show up at the party, j-hope gave a clear explanation during his recent VLIVE broadcast.
On the “Jack in the Box” album release date, July 15, j-hope greeted his fans on a VLIVE broadcast, telling stories and explaining about his album. During this time, j-hope also gave a clear explanation about the reason why SUGA was not present at his “Jack in the Box” party.
According to j-hope, SUGA was originally supposed to attend the event. He had planned on coming and even prepared everything from costume and makeup. But, unfortunately, while SUGA had been highly excited about the party, he got a high fever on D-Day.
Along with the high fever, SUGA also experienced a bit of cold. So after discussing with j-hope, both BTS members agreed that it was better for SUGA not to attend the party.
“Yesterday, you must’ve realized that SUGA-hyung wasn’t there.
If I were to talk about it, SUGA-hyung had actually planned on coming. He even wondered what to wear and told me he’d also get his makeup done! He expressed it all with so much excitement.
But of all days, he got somewhat of a high fever on the day of the party and had a little cold.
So, just in case, we spoke to each other and decided that it’s better not to attend.”j-hope.
SUGA Does NOT Have COVID-19
Indeed, since SUGA experienced a high fever and cold, many assumed he got infected with COVID-19 once again. Both SUGA and j-hope even thought the same thing as well. That is why they both agreed that it was better for SUGA not to attend the party.
But please rest assured, during his VLIVE broadcast, j-hope also clarified that SUGA does NOT have COVID-19. The test result returned negative, but he would still need to be careful.
“Thankfully, Yoongi-hyung tested negative for COVID. But he said it’s better to be careful since it’s a place where I’d have many guests over.
And I feel that it was truly… very considerate of him.”j-hope.
j-hope Wished All BTS Members Could Attend “Jack in the Box” Listening Party
Still, even when SUGA being sick on j-hope’s D-Day party was purely a coincidence, both BTS members were equally disappointed.
j-hope particularly felt disappointed because BTS members were all the most important to him. Therefore, having all of them present without SUGA was a disappointing moment he would never forget. And that was especially when SUGA was the one who promised to be one of the first to listen to the song when it’s out.
“It was really upsetting to me too! Because, to be honest, the members are the most important to me, and I badly wanted to let the members hear it.
And as for SUGA-hyung, he was the one who actually said at first that he’d listen to it when it’s out. Besides, he said he’d listen to it once and for all when it’s released.
So I feel very, very disappointed about not being able to have him over in the event where I let (people) hear it beforehand.”j-hope.

🐿️ I could have also shared it with Suga, but he likes to be very respectful of the process. He told me, “I’ll listen to it when it comes out.” He always says that to me. There’s a bit of shock and motivation that comes after hearing that. pic.twitter.com/kapr37vbvp
SUGA Felt Regret and Disappointed Too
At the same time, SUGA was also upset for not being able to join j-hope “Jack in the Box” party. j-hope further stated that SUGA had texted him, expressing his regret for not being able to attend his most important event.
SUGA was extremely sorry to j-hope and continued cheering and supporting him. And for j-hope, it was a different source of strength.
“And SUGA-hyung felt really disappointed about it too. He even texted me saying that it’s such regret that he couldn’t make it, that he was so sorry and everything. He truly supported and cheered me a lot.
So even though he couldn’t attend the event, I felt like there was something about it that gave me strength in a different way.”j-hope.
