iKON’s Junhoe was identified as another positive case following fellow members Jinhwan, Yunhyeong, and Donghyuk.
Junhoe tested negative on his PCR test on January 22. However, two days later on January 24, he felt mild symptoms such as a sore throat and was tested again, and received a positive diagnosis.
TREASURE’s Yoshi will also enter quarantine and receive treatment at home after his PCR test result from today came out positive.
Both Junhoe and Yoshi have completed their vaccination and are in good health.
As with the confirmed cases earlier, we have been taking the preemptive measures, more than what the guidelines are stating.
Regardless of whether they are identified as close contacts or not, we are continuing to have our artists and staff conduct Covid-19 tests while disinfecting their residences.
We plan to share updates as soon as possible in the future, and we will take all necessary measures to restore the health of our artists and prevent the spread of Covid-19.
