Koo Jun Hoe tested negative on the COVID-19 PCR test on January 22 KST. However, two days later on January 24, he experienced symptoms of a mild sore throat and was re-examined. Today, on January 25 KST, he received his positive test results.
TREASURE member Yoshi's COVID-19 PCR test also was confirmed as positive on the same day, and he plans to be treated from home.
Both Koo Jun Hoe and Yoshi have received their complete COVID-19 vaccinations, and are currently in good health.
As we did with the earlier confirmed cases, we have been taking preemptive measures beyond the requirements of the quarantine guidlines.
Regardless of whether there was close contact, we are continuing to have our artists and employees undergo COVID-19 tests and also disinfect their residential spaces.
We plan to quickly inform you of our situation in the future, and will continue to take all necessary measures to restore the health of our artists to prevent the spread of COVID-19."
