Metro.co.uk cited a statement released by Jaehyun’s agency SM Entertainment that said while the artist did not show symptoms, "when COVID-19 broke out in the club in Itaewon and started to spread, he voluntarily received a COVID-19 diagnosis test and tested negative."
The Korea Herald reported that Pledis Entertainment and Fantagio, which manage Seventeen and Astro respectively, said their artists (Mingyu and Cha Eunwoo) spent the night in Itaewon and apologised for not complying with social distancing properly.
