SM Entertainment confirmed that NCT and aespa will undergo COVID-19 tests.
An official from SM Entertainment said, “As a preemptive measure, NCT, aespa and their staff will be tested for COVID-19.”
Earlier today, TOP Media confirmed that UP10TION’s Bitto has been tested positive for COVID-19. They wrote, “Bitto was tested for COVID-19 when he was notified that he was someone who came into close contact with a patient. And on the morning of Nov 30, he was confirmed with the virus.”
As soon as the news was released, groups that have made contact with UP10TION or appeared in the same music show have all been put on alert.
It has been reported that AKMU, Stray Kids, CNBLUE, and more teams are trying to figure out whether or not their movements overlapped with UP10TION.
