This is YG Entertainment.
Following iKON members Kim Jinhwan, Song Yunhyeong, and Kim Donghyuk, Koo Junhoe was also confirmed with COVID-19.
Kim Junhoe underwent PCR testing on January 22 and received negative results. However, two days later on January 24, he had a mild sore throat and was re-examined, and he was diagnosed with COVID-19 today (January 25).
TREASURE member Yoshi, whose PCR test results came out positive, will also be self-quarantined and treated at home.
Both Koo Junhoe and Yoshi got their COVID-19 vaccinations and are currently in good health.
As with the confirmed cases earlier, we took intensive preemptive measures beyond the guidelines of the quarantine authorities.
We will continue to conduct COVID-19 tests on artists and staff members, regardless of whether they were in close contact [with those who tested positive] or not, while disinfecting the office.
We plan to share any changes to the situation quickly, and we will take all necessary measures to restore the health of our confirmed artists and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Wishing Junhoe and Yoshi a speedy recovery!
