NCT and Mark’s agency, SM Entertainment, confirmed the saddening news through a press release on Monday.

The announcement, reposted by Star News, disclosed that Mark was diagnosed with the dreaded virus after noticing symptoms on the morning of July 25. He reportedly underwent a rapid antigen test and confirmed that he, indeed, has the virus.

“Mark previously received three doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. He has immediately halted all activities and is self-isolating and getting treated at home in accordance with the guidelines of the government health authorities,” the announcement went on.
