Hyolyn Diagnosed With COVID-19
Hyolyn has tested positive for COVID-19.
On January 26, her agency Bridge Entertainment released the following statement:
Hello, this is Bridge Entertainment.
While waiting for the recording of KBS 2TV’s “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook” on January 25, Hyolyn was notified that she came in close contact with a COVID-19 confirmed patient on her current show “Double Trouble.” She immediately suspended her schedule and underwent PCR testing.
On January 26, Hyolyn tested positive for COVID-19, and all the staff members who were with her tested negative. Accordingly, she canceled all her scheduled activities and is taking necessary measures in accordance with the guidelines of the quarantine authorities.
Hyolyn completed her second round of the COVID-19 vaccination, but she still tested positive. Prior to the recording of “Double Trouble” last Sunday, she used a self-diagnosis kit and received negative results, so she participated in the recording. She also tested negative before “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook” when she used a self-diagnoses kit in her vehicle, but while waiting for the recording, she was contacted [that she came in close contact with a COVID-19 patient] and immediately halted her schedule.
The company will thoroughly comply with the guidelines of the quarantine authorities and do its best for the health and safety of its artist. In addition, we would like to apologize for causing concern to fans and audience members. [Hyolyn] will recover as soon as possible and greet you in a healthy state.
Wishing Hyolyn a quick recovery!
