YG Entertainment has just announced that iKON members Jinhwan, Yunhyeong, and Donghyuk have all tested positive for COVID-19. The company confirmed that the members tested positive after exhibiting mild cold symptoms and went into self-quarantine after halting all group activities. Members Bobby, Junhoe and Chanwoo have tested negative for the virus. Below is YG Entertainment’s statement on the matter:
“This is YG Entertainment.
iKON members Kim Jinhwan, Song Yunhyeong, and Kim Donghyuk were diagnosed with COVID-19 today (January 23).
On January 22, they experienced mild cold symptoms, so they used COVID-19 self-test kits to test themselves, and their initial results were positive.
Afterwards, all of the iKON members immediately halted their scheduled activities and underwent PCR testing, and while individually isolating themselves in self-quarantine, Bobby, Koo Junhoe, and Jung Chanwoo’s results came back negative, and the remaining three members were ultimately confirmed to have COVID-19.
We will be unsparing in our support of not only Kim Jinhwan, Song Yunhyeong, and Kim Donghyuk’s speedy recovery, but also the health and safety of all our artists.
Additionally, we will diligently cooperate with health authorities’ epidemiological surveillance while taking all measures necessary to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
If there are any changes to the situation in the future, we will inform you as quickly as possible.”
Jinhwan, Yunhyeong and Donghyuk – Wishing you a speedy recovery!
