NCT 127’s Yuta has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
On June 29, SM Entertainment announced that Yuta tested positive for the virus, and thus, will not be participating in the NCT 127 2nd TOUR “NEO CITY: SINGAPORE – THE LINK.”
SM Entertainment’s full statement is as follows:
NCT’s Yuta was diagnosed with COVID-19 today (June 29).
Yuta tested negative on the PCR test he underwent before entering Korea after the concert in Japan, but in accordance with COVID-19 regulations, he underwent PCR testing again after returning to Korea, and those test results came back positive.
Yuta previously received three doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, and he is currently not exhibiting any particular symptoms. He has halted all of his scheduled activities and is self-isolating in accordance with the guidelines of government health authorities.
All of the other NCT 127 members tested negative on the PCR tests they underwent after their arrival in Korea.
Accordingly, the NCT 127 2nd TOUR “NEO CITY: SINGAPORE – THE LINK” concert scheduled for July 2 will be held with only 8 members (Taeil, Johnny, Taeyong, Doyoung, Jaehyun, Jungwoo, Mark, and Haechan), so we ask for your understanding.
Our agency will strictly adhere to the instructions of health authorities, and we will consider our artist’s health and safety our top priority as we do our utmost to help him focus entirely on his recovery.
Wishing Yuta the speediest of recoveries!
