Red Velvet’s Irene, Joy, And Yeri Test Positive For COVID-19 + Upcoming Concert Postponed
Red Velvet has postponed their upcoming concert “2022 The ReVe Festival : Prologue” as three members have been diagnosed with COVID-19.
On March 14, SM Entertainment released the following statement:
Hello, this is SM Entertainment.
Red Velvet’s Irene, Joy, and Yeri recently received positive results from COVID-19 self-testing kits that they used preemptively, so they carried out PCR tests and were confirmed positive this past weekend.
Irene, Joy, and Yeri have completed the second doses of their COVID-19 vaccines. They are currently carrying out at-home treatment, and they are not exhibiting any particular symptoms. Seulgi and Wendy received negative results even with their additional tests.
As a result, Red Velvet’s special live event “2022 The ReVe Festival : Prologue” scheduled for March 19 and 20 has inevitably been postponed tentatively, and all tickets will be fully refunded. The future status of the event will be decided after reviewing the COVID-19 situation and the artists’ health.
In addition, Red Velvet’s new mini album will be released on “The ReVe Festival 2022 – Feel My Rhythm” as scheduled.
We will continue to thoroughly comply with disease control guidelines, and with the artists’ health and safety as the top priorities, we will do our best in order for them to be able to focus on their treatment and recovery.
Wishing speedy recoveries for Irene, Joy, and Yeri!
