Updated December 10 KST:
All ENHYPEN members have tested negative for COVID-19.
ENHYPEN’s agency BELIFT LAB announced on December 10 via Weverse, “An external staff member who had been on site for an ENHYPEN event was confirmed as a COVID-19 case, and as a result the artists and staffs underwent preemptive testing yesterday (December 9). All tests were returned negative, and ENHYPEN will resume their regular activities from today (December 10).”
ENHYPEN has canceled their radio schedule in order to undergo COVID-19 testing.
The group was scheduled to appear on the MBC FM4U radio show “Kim Shin Young‘s Hope Song at Noon” on December 9.
However, their appearance was canceled abruptly due to a staff member testing positive for the virus.
Here is the full statement from MBC Radio:
ENHYPEN, who was scheduled for the third and fourth parts of “Kim Shin Young’s Hope Song at Noon” today, had to cancel their appearance due to an outsourced staff member who tested positive for COVID-19.
ENHYPEN will undergo a preemptive COVID-19 test and will go into self-isolation until the test results are confirmed.
This is a measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19, so we ask for your understanding.
ENHYPEN’s agency BELIFT LAB also shared a statement via the fan site on Weverse:
We were notified today that an outsourced staff member who participated in ENHYPEN’s December 5 schedule tested positive for COVID-19.
Although the authorities haven’t officially requested they undergo testing, the members and staff will be tested for COVID-19 today as a preemptive measure for safety reasons. They will be going into self-isolation until the test results are out.
