SEVENTEEN postpone all promotional activities due to staff being tested positive for COVID-19


[NOTICE] Postponement of SEVENTEEN 8th Mini-Album Activities

This is PLEDIS Entertainment.

We would like to announce that SEVENTEEN’s promotional activities for their 8th mini-album have been postponed.

A media production took place on Tuesday, June 15 in preparation for SEVENTEEN’s 8th mini-album comeback. One HYBE staff member and one external staff member who were present on site were confirmed as COVID-19 cases on Friday, June 18 and Saturday, June 19, respectively.

As soon as initial symptoms appeared for the first confirmed case in the evening of June 17, the artists used self test kits to confirm that they were negative for COVID and underwent additional PCR testing as a preemptive measure; all artists were found to be negative when the results were returned in the morning of June 18. The artists currently are showing no symptoms whatsoever that may indicate an infection, such as fevers or respiratory disorders.

All staff on site at the June 15 shoot carried out preemptive self testing as well as subsequent PCR testing, and with the exception of the two individuals who were confirmed for COVID all were found to be negative. In addition, only staff members who were confirmed as negative took part in activities after Friday, June 18.

However, on Saturday evening, June 19, health authorities informed us that they have classified the artists as well as all on-site staff that took part in the Tuesday, June 15 production as close contacts and requested that affected individuals undergo self quarantine from the night of June 19 to June 29.

As a result, SEVENTEEN will postpone 8th mini-album promotional activities including their appearance on SBS Inkigayo scheduled for Sunday, June 20 and the SEVENTEEN 8th Mini-Album “Your Choice” Online Fan Sign event. Detailed schedules for the resumption of SEVENTEEN’s activities will be provided following the conclusion of their self quarantine.

We would like to ask all fans who have waited patiently for SEVENTEEN’s comeback and the members of the media for your generous understanding.

We will continue to fully comply with the requests and guidelines from health authorities, placing the highest priority on the safety of our artists and staff.

Thank you.
