AKP STAFF

Seventeen member Mingyu has tested positive for COVID-19.

On August 20 KST, Seventeen's agency Pledis Entertainment released an official statement revealing that Mingyu has been diagnosed with COVID-19. Earlier, Dino also tested positive. As a result, both members will not be participating in the group's show in Houston. Mingyu will also be absent from the group's 'Be The Sun' concert in Fort Worth on the 23rd.

The agency's statement is as follows:

"Hello.
This is PLEDIS Entertainment.

We would like to provide you with some information regarding SEVENTEEN member MINGYU’s COVID-19 diagnosis and his future activities.

MINGYU experienced a mild sore throat in the early morning of August 19 (PT) and preemptively took a COVID-19 test, and the test result returned positive. MINGYU is currently under self-quarantine and administering self-treatment in Los Angeles.

All SEVENTEEN members other than DINO and MINGYU are not experiencing any unusual symptoms.

The scheduled concerts will be held without any changes in the schedule. However, in compliance with the local preventive guidelines, 11 members will be participating in the Houston show on Saturday, the 20th, without DINO and MINGYU, and 12 members will be participating in the Fort Worth show on Tuesday, the 23rd, without MINGYU.

We will continue to provide support for the rapid recovery of MINGYU, placing our highest priority on the health and safety of our artists. We will also continue to fully cooperate with the requests and guidelines of healthcare authorities.

Thank you.

Wishing Mingyu a well and speedy recovery!

As someone who just recently recovered from covid, I know for a fact how awful it is. I wish him a very speedy recovery and hope he and Dino don't get it bad.
