BTS praised for heat rash admission, under fire over Saudi Arabia show

As South Korea’s annual summer heatwave approaches, not even the coolest of the nation’s celebrated K-pop stars are immune to soaring temperatures.

Kim Tae-hyung – better known as V, a member of popular South Korean boy band BTS – impressed fans with his honesty when he revealed he was experiencing cholinergic urticaria, a previously little-known medical term for heat rashes. The allergic reaction occurs when body heat and sweat form hives, which can last hours and in some cases even days.

Responding to a fan comment on BTS Weverse, the group’s official global fan platform, about why he had been seen “tickling” himself, the singer said: “I have a cholinergic allergy, [it’s so] itchy.”

Soon afterwards, “cholinergic urticaria” became a top-trending term on South Korean search engine Naver, as well as across Twitter and other social media.
