EVERGLOW’s Yiren and Sihyeon were tested positive for COVID-19. Soon, You Hee Yeol, Gummy, and more were also tested as the group made their appearance on KBS’s You Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook and received negative results.
Yesterday, it was reported that EVERGLOW’s Yiren and Sihyeon were confirmed with COVID-19. As soon as the news came out, Antenna Music announced, “You Hee Yeol and his staff are waiting for the results after being tested immediately after hearing the news that guests on You Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook were tested positive for COVID-19.”
Gummy, Teen Top, Joo Hyun Mi and Kim Hyun Chul, who starred in the same episode as EVERGLOW, were reported to have been tested. Especially the fact that You Hee Yeol took pictures with EVERGLOW members without a mask got netizens worried.
But thankfully, later today, Gummy and You Hee Yeol were confirmed to have tested negative for COVID-19. Gummy’s agency C-JeS Entertainment said, “Gummy tested negative for COVID-19.” Antenna Music also said, “You Hee Yeol and his staff all received negative results today.” However, You Hee Yeol will be postponing this week’s schedule and going into self-isolation for the rest of the week.
As You is currently appearing in other shows, including JTBC’s Sing Again, the industry was relieved of a great anxiety. Sing Again‘s production team said, “There is no recording planned in the near future. We have enough recordings, and we will keep our eyes on the situation.”
