Shocking news came from BELIFT which announced that the idols under their auspices tested positive for COVID-19.

Today, September 2, 2021, BELIFT announced that 5 members of the boy group ENHYPEN, Jungwon, Heeseung, Jay, Jake and Sunghoon were positive for COVID-19 because they were active around someone who was positive for COVID.



ENHYPEN members Jungwon, Heeseung, Jay, Jake and Sunghoon have been diagnosed positive for COVID-19 while undergoing self-quarantine.

Following the confirmation of the COVID-19 case at the production site, ENHYPEN has been in self-quarantine since Thursday, August 26, and was classified by government authorities on Friday, August 27 as requiring self-quarantine due to close contact with COVID-positive individuals. During self-quarantine, Jake started showing symptoms including cough and fever on Sunday, August 29, and after reporting his symptoms to the Puskesmas, he underwent a PCR test. He was found positive for COVID-19 on the morning of Monday, August 30. Furthermore, members Jungwon, Heeseung, Jay, and Sunghoon started showing the same symptoms on Monday, and PCR testing was carried out, which confirmed their positive diagnosis for COVID-19. Following instructions from the health authorities, necessary actions are being taken, including assignment and relocation to treatment facilities; the members are currently showing mild symptoms.

After the COVID-19 case occurred on site on Wednesday, August 25, all present including the artist underwent a PCR test, tested negative, and went into self-quarantine; thus, the probability of further spread is low.

All artists and staff who are in self-quarantine do self-test twice a day and monitor their health closely and immediately carry out PCR testing as soon as symptoms appear.

We apologize for causing concern to all fans by not being able to prevent this series of infections from occurring even though we have made every effort to ensure that precautions have been taken on site. Our company will provide full support for the members’ speedy recovery, placing the health and safety of our artists as our top priority. In addition, we will continue to cooperate fully with requests and instructions from government health authorities.

Thank you.”
