Update: Im Siwan Tests Negative For COVID-19
Updated October 14 KST:
Im Siwan personally shared through an Instagram post that his latest COVID-19 test came back negative. He added, “Don’t worry, and let’s get through this!”
His video includes him asking a voice-controlled smart speaker, “When will COVID-19 end?” The voice responds, “I don’t know when.”
Im Siwan had to undergo another test for COVID-19.
On October 13, Im Siwan’s agency Plum Entertainment shared, “One tenant in Im Siwan’s apartment building tested positive for COVID-19, so he was tested as well. Although they didn’t have close contact with each other, he was still examined as a safety precaution.”
Previously, a staff member of his current drama “Run On” tested positive for the virus. The drama halted shooting immediately and the cast and crew underwent testing. Although the results came back negative, there may be changes to the filming schedule, especially since Im Siwan got a second COVID-19 exam.
Currently, Im Siwan is taking a break at home while waiting for his results.
