JIMIN of K-pop boy group BTS personally apologized for his health insurance controversy.

On June 2, the members of BTS safely arrived back in Korea after visiting the White House to meet with the U.S. President Joe Biden.

Shortly after his return, JIMIN took to the group's Weverse and shared a lengthy letter to his fans.

Hello ARMY, has everyone been doing well?

I was able to go to the United States the other day, and I believe everyone is aware of the event that we participated in.

I am thankful and honored that we were able to take part in this event to raise our voice in representation of all the ARMYs of different races, countries, and cultural backgrounds.

However, I thought I might be so inexperienced to be standing there on behalf of you all.

I apologize for causing concerns due to my inexperienced actions.

I will do my best to become more mature so that I do not cause concerns to you in the future.

You must have been worried since I didn't come here often. I will visit here more often.

I always miss you, ARMY.
