Yoonhak of the K-pop group Supernova, whose activities have mainly focused on Japan for a while now, has tested positive for COVID-19, according to a rep.
On April 3, SPOTV News reported that Yoon Hak was diagnosed with novel coronavirus (COVID-19) on April 1. Following reports, a representative confirmed, “After returning to Korea on March 24 following his individual promotions in Japan, Yoon Hak was diagnosed with COVID-19 on April 1.” The source continued, “Currently, Yoon Hak is hospitalized and receiving treatment. His symptoms are mild. He will be focusing on treatment and recovery. His manager, stylists, and other staff members have all tested negative.” Reportedly, Yoon Hak did not experience any symptoms directly after returning to Korea. However, after symptoms began to gradually appear, he got tested on March 31 at the Seocho District Public Health Center. The next day, he was diagnosed and sent to Seoul Medical Center, where he is currently receiving treatment in an isolated room.
He is seemingly the first Korean celebrity to ACTUALLY test positive for COVID-19. Though he is 35 (wow, time flies), so hopefully he isn’t one of those unlucky enough to come down with serious complications from this.
Scary times out there. Stay safe.
