MONSTA X’s Hyungwon Enters Self-Quarantine + His Drama Halts Filming After COVID-19 Case Discovered On Set
On August 1, Hyungwon’s agency announced that while filming the drama, he had come into close contact with the individual who has since been diagnosed with COVID-19.
While Hyungwon himself tested negative for the virus, he has entered self-quarantine as a precautionary measure.
A representative of King Kong by Starship stated, “Hyungwon’s COVID-19 test results have come back negative. However, as he has been classified as a close contact [of the COVID-19 patient], he is currently in self-quarantine.”
Hyungwon’s “Fly Again” co-star Lee Seung Heon, who also came into close contact with the confirmed case of COVID-19, has similarly entered self-quarantine despite testing negative.
“Fly Again” is reportedly in the midst of adjusting its filming schedule following this unexpected development.
