Jooyeon, Hyomin, Lee Min Jung, & more reportedly attended a large birthday party in Itaewon amidst COVID19 advisory


According to media outlet 'Sports Kyunghyang' on May 20, top stars including actress Lee Min Jung, actress/former After School member Jooyeon, T-ara member Hyomin, former Olympic gymnast Son Yeon Jae, actress Kim Hee Jung, and more attended a large birthday party in Itaewon on May 9. 

The party in question celebrated the birthday of a well-known representative of the fashion industry, and numerous celebrities attended the party hosted privately at a cafe, according to 'Sports Kyunghyang'. The media outlet also claimed that no one in attendance wore masks during the event.

Furthermore, May 9 is the day on which the 66th COVID19-positive individual from the city of Yongin attended numerous clubs in Itaewon, spreading the virus to hundreds of others so far.

Meanwhile, in response to the above report, a representative from former Olympic gymnast Son Yeon Jae's side stated, "The birthday party did not take place in Itaewon, it was held at a cafe in Chungdam-dong." Lee Min Jung's agency has also spoken up, with, "Lee Min Jung was invited to a birthday party in Chungdam-dong. She is good friends with the individual, so she attended briefly to deliver her gift and take a commemorative photo."

The other stars and their agencies have yet to respond to the allegations.

So I checked Google Maps. Chungdam-dong (or spelled Cheongdam-dong) is approximately 4 neighbourhood districts away from Itaewon and lies on the other side of the Han River. It takes about 30 mins to travel from one to the other via public transport. Good luck connecting the two cases.
