More K-pop artists test positive for Covid-19
Three more K-pop singers tested positive for Covid-19 on Tuesday according to their respective agencies.
Woolim Entertainment on Tuesday said that boy band Drippin members Hwang Yun-seong and Joo Chang-uk tested positive for the virus on Tuesday after complaining of mildly sore throats.
"The two members tested negative in PCR tests that were conducted on Monday, but after being tested again Tuesday, the results were positive," said the agency in a statement.
In January, the band's Lee Hyeop and Cha Junho tested positive for the virus.
The agency added that all the members in Drippin are fully vaccinated and that other members and staff are in self-quarantine.
Drippin is a seven-member band that debuted in 2020. Its most recent EP, titled "Villain," dropped on Jan. 17.
Girl group Momoland's JooE also tested positive for the virus on Tuesday, according to her agency MLD Entertainment.
"JooE took a PCR test on Monday after she came down with a mild fever," said the agency. "With no serious symptoms, she is currently being treated for the virus at home."
The agency added that JooE has been vaccinated twice.
Momoland recently finished promotional activities for a song titled "Yummy Yummy Love" which dropped Jan. 14.
Momoland is an eight-member girl group that debuted in 2016 with its track "Jjan!"
The three artists' Covid-19 infections follow a string of some 30 K-pop artists who have also tested positive for the virus in the past 10 days.
