Yoo Jae Suk Announces Return To Activities After Testing Negative For COVID-19

Yoo Jae Suk’s agency has announced that he will be leaving self-quarantine and officially resuming his activities.

Last month, one of the staff members from tvN’s “You Quiz on the Block” tested positive for COVID-19. While Yoo Jae Suk tested negative for the virus at the time, he still chose to remain in self-quarantine as a precautionary measure.

As a result, not only “You Quiz on the Block” but also several of Yoo Jae Suk’s other variety shows, including “The Sixth Sense 2” and “Running Man,” canceled their scheduled shoots for the following two weeks.

On August 3, Yoo Jae Suk’s agency Antenna announced that his final COVID-19 test results had come back negative. Accordingly, the star will be returning to his scheduled activities starting on August 5, when he will participate in a shoot for MBC’s “How Do You Play?

Antenna’s full statement is as follows:

Hello, this is Antenna.

Today, our artist Yoo Jae Suk’s final [COVID-19] test results came back negative, and starting with MBC’s “How Do You Play?” shoot on August 5, he will officially be resuming his activities.

Although Yoo Jae Suk previously tested negative for COVID-19 after one of the staff members from tvN’s “You Quiz on the Block” was diagnosed with COVID-19, he entered self-quarantine because he was classified as a close contact. While he was later reclassified as a “case for active observation” [as opposed to a close contact who needed to remain in self-quarantine], he canceled all of his scheduled activities as a precautionary measure, in order to ensure everyone’s safety.

We offer our deepest thanks to everyone who worried about Yoo Jae Suk’s health and cheered him on, as well as all the health care professionals who are working their hardest in this sweltering heat on the front lines of the fight against this disease.

Our agency will continue to make the health and safety of our artists and employees our top priority in the future. We will also strictly adhere to the guidelines of disease control authorities and do our utmost for future activities.

Welcome back, Yoo Jae Suk!
