On the 20th of January, it was announced that Super Junior's Eunhyuk took a rapid antigen detection test for COVID-19 for precautionary measures. The results showed that the K-pop idol might have COVID-19, so Eunhyuk went to get a follow-up PCR test
Later on, Label SJ, the exclusive label established by SM Entertainment for Super Junior, confirmed via an official announcement that Super Junior's Eunhyuk has gone on to test positive in a PCR test as well, which means that he has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
The statement from Label SJ is as follows:
"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."
Notably, Super Junior's Eunhyuk recently filmed a guest appearance on SBS's "Running Man," so all the cast members of the variety show will now be tested for COVID-19.
Furthermore, Yoo Jae Suk and HaHa were in the middle of shooting for MBC's "How Do You Play?" when the two stars got the news and immediately went to get tested at a nearby testing center for COVID-19.
To add to this, the other cast and staff members of "How Do You Play?" continued filming after testing negative for COVID-19 after making use of self-testing kits.
Netizens and fans are hoping that Super Junior's Eunhyuk swiftly recovers!
