Super Junior main dancer Eunhyuk receives a diagnosis that he has tested positive for COVID-19.
On January 20, Label SJ, Eunhyuk’s agency, revealed that the idol singer had done a pre-emptive COVID-19 rapid antigen test on the morning for precautionary measures.
Later that day, the agency released a statement that Eunhyuk had tested positive in the PCR test, indicating that he has been formally diagnosed with COVID-19.
Eunhyuk has completed the third round of his COVID-19 vaccination and only experiences minor symptoms. He also confirmed that he has not been in close contact with other Super Junior members.
But, according to the quarantine authorities’ guidelines, all members and related staff are checking their health and symptoms frequently.
Eunhyuk cancels all schedules after testing positive for the virus
As a result of Eunhyuk’s recent guest appearance on the SBS variety show Running Man, the whole staff and members of the show will now be tested for the virus.
Yoo Jae Suk and HaHa were filming for MBC variety show How Do You Play? when they heard the news and quickly went to a neighboring testing center to get tested.
The rest of the staff and crew of How Do You Play? continued filming after utilizing self-testing kits to confirm a negative result.
Here is the statement released by Label SJ regarding Eunhyuk’s current health situation.
Hello, this is Label SJ.
On the morning of January 20, Super Junior’s Eunhyuk seemed to have tested positive during a precautionary rapid antigen detection test for COVID-19. He went to the hospital to get a follow-up PCR test and was told this evening that he was confirmed to have tested positive.
Eunhyuk completed the third dose of his COVID-19 vaccine in December, so he currently only has very minor symptoms. All of his scheduled activities have been put on pause, and he is resting safely while following the directions of the disease control authorities.
We have confirmed that Eunhyuk had no recent close contact with any of the other Super Junior members. Just in case, however, all of the members and their related staff are being tested.
Putting our artists’ health and safety as our top priority, the agency will do our best to support Eunhyuk’s speedy recovery. We will also faithfully follow the directives and requests of the disease control authorities.
Eunhyuk recently participated in the recording of the Tiger year special episode of Running Man. As a result, all Running Man members such as Yoo Jae Seok, Ji Seok Jin, HaHa, Song Ji Hyo, Kim Jong Guk, and Jeon So Min were also subject to conduct a PCR test.
Meanwhile, Eunhyuk is currently in isolation and is taking good care of his health, according to his agency.
