Super Junior’s Eunhyuk Confirmed To Have Tested Positive For COVID-19
On January 20, Label SJ announced that Eunhyuk had taken a rapid antigen detection test for COVID-19 for precautionary reasons. The result indicated that he might have COVID-19, so he went to get a follow-up PCR test as well.
Later on January 20, Label SJ confirmed through an official statement that Eunhyuk had tested positive in the PCR test as well, meaning that he has officially been diagnosed with COVID-19.
The statement reads:
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 his 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 filmed a guest appearance on SBS’s “Running Man,” so all the cast members on the show will now be tested for the virus. Yoo Jae Suk and HaHa were in the middle of a shoot for MBC’s “How Do You Play?” when they got the news and immediately went to get tested at a nearby testing center. The other cast and staff members of “How Do You Play?” resumed filming after testing negative using self-testing kits.
Wishing Eunhyuk a speedy recovery!
