As of writing this article, yesterday on the 23rd of January, YG Entertainment announced that the three members of their hit K-pop group iKON had gone on to test positive for COVID-19 after initially showing mild symptoms of the cold.

Read YG Entertainment's announcement below:

"This is YG Entertainment.

iKON members Kim Jinhwan, Song Yunhyeong, and Kim Donghyuk were diagnosed with COVID-19 today (January 23).

On January 22, they experienced mild cold symptoms, so they used COVID-19 self-test kits to test themselves, and their initial results were positive.

Afterwards, all of the iKON members immediately halted their scheduled activities and underwent PCR testing, and while individually isolating themselves in self-quarantine, Bobby, Koo Junhoe, and Jung Chanwoo's results came back negative, and the remaining three members were ultimately confirmed to have COVID-19.

We will be unsparing in our support of not only Kim Jinhwan, Song Yunhyeong, and Kim Donghyuk's speedy recovery, but also the health and safety of all our artists.

Additionally, we will diligently cooperate with health authorities' epidemiological surveillance while taking all measures necessary to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

If there are any changes to the situation in the future, we will inform you as quickly as possible."

Although iKON immediately stopped what they were doing and directly went into self-quarantine as a precautionary measure, iKON's Bobby, Junhoe, and Chanwoo have since tested negative for the COVID-19 virus.
