Super Junior's Eunhyuk tests positive for Covid-19
Eunhyuk of boy band Super Junior tested positive for Covid-19, his agency Label SJ said Thursday.
Label SJ said that Eunhyuk took a PCR test on Thursday after testing positive on an antigen rapid test.
Eunhyuk has received all three jabs of the vaccine, with his latest dose being in December.
“Currently Eunhyuk is exhibiting minor symptoms,” Label SJ said. “All his upcoming plans have been halted and he is taking necessary measures in accordance with healthcare authority guidelines.”
The agency added that Eunhyuk was not in direct contact with the other members of Super Junior. Regardless, the members and crew are taking PCR tests “just in case.”
Eunhyuk has been filming for a guest appearance on an upcoming episode of SBS’s popular variety show “Running Man” (2010-).
Actor Song Ji-hyo, a regular cast member on “Running Man,” tested negative but was ordered to go into quarantine because she is unvaccinated due to an allergy to Western medicine.
Her agency Creative Group ING said that Song has long displayed severe allergic reactions to antibiotics and complied with doctors’ advice that she should not receive the Covid vaccine.
Other crew members of “Running Man” have been tested and are waiting for their results.
