Three members of iKON test positive for Covid
Three members of boy band iKON tested positive for Covid-19, according to the group's agency YG Entertainment on Sunday.
After showing symptoms of a cold, members Kim Jin-hwan, Song Yun-heong and Kim Dong-hyuk have been confirmed to have the virus.
The agency added that the three other members in iKON — Bobby, Jung Chan-woo and Koo Jun-hoe — have tested negative after their PCR tests on Saturday.
“The agency plans to fully cooperate with the country’s health authorities and take measures to prevent the spread of the virus,” said YG Entertainment in a statement. “We will actively support the health of the members as well.”
iKON debuted in 2015 with an EP titled “Welcome Back.” Some of its hit songs include “Climax” (2016), “Love Scenario” (2018) and “Killing Me” (2019). The band’s most recent song is “Why Why Why,” which was released in March 2021.
Originally debuting with seven members, iKON was reorganized as a six-member band in 2019 after its former leader B.I.’s departure following allegations he had purchased drugs.
