LOONA to sit out Mnet's 'Queendom 2' this week as HaSeul, YeoJin, and Vivi test positive for COVID-19


Blockberry Creative announced LOONA won't be attending the first preliminary performance of Mnet's 'Queendom 2' due to COVID-19. 

On February 28th KST, the label released the following statement. 

"Hello, this is Blockberry Creative. We are notifying LOONA's HaSeul, YeoJin and Vivi have tested positive for COVID-19. 

LOONA members took a PCR test after a few members tested positive via a self-test kit on the 25th. On February 26th, HaSeul, YeoJin and Vivi have tested positive for COVID-19.  

YeoJin has been triple vaccinated and HaSeul and Vivi has completed their second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. All three members have now halted all their activities and have been taking measures according to the health authority's guidelines. 

The rest of the members have tested negative on the 25th's PCR tests, however, they have been continuously testing using a self-test kit given the virus's dormant period. Some members have tested positive on the 27th with a self-test kit so they have now taken a PCR test. We will follow up with the test results. 

As a result, LOONA will sit out the first preliminary round of Mnet's 'Queendom 2' which is scheduled to take place on February 28th. 

We apologize to our fans and partners for causing concerns, and we promise to do our best to protect our artists' health and safety. 

Thank you."

I feel bad for them, they undoubtedly worked hard on this performance and to witness it being ruined by a factor they can’t even control is so unfair.

It would be better to just delay the 1st round(which is imo the most important, full disclosure of capacities), or for them to submit a recording at a later date, so that their endeavor wouldn’t be in vain.

well i was wondering with so many members of WJSN and LOONA.. it was bound to happen.. i really hope the MC dun get it also.. but i guess the "advantage" of large groups like LOONA and WJSN is they can have 2 or 3 members get it and still carry on with the show but for VIVIZ they only have 3 members so if 1 or 2 got it.. they cant even record..

i hope Queendom 2 will continue on without issues..

i wonder how is it the other girls didnt get it since i assume they all stay in the same dorm..

unless the agency split the girls up to smaller dorms separately due to Covid or the girls stay separately.
