FNC Entertainment Clarifies SF9’s Rowoon’s Comments About His Vaccination Status

FNC Entertainment released a statement clarifying SF9’s Rowoon’s comments about his vaccination status.

On November 25, Rowoon was participating in an online video call fan sign event. When asked about his vaccination status, he had replied, “I haven’t had time, so I haven’t gotten vaccinated yet. I heard that when you get the vaccine, you have to rest for a few days. I’ve been getting PCR tests every two days.”

This sparked criticism online as Rowoon is currently active in multiple fields of the entertainment industry, where COVID-19 cases continue to be an issue, including promoting on music shows with SF9 for their comeback with “Trauma” and acting in the KBS drama “The King’s Affection.”

On November 26, FNC Entertainment released the following statement:

"This is our statement on Rowoon’s comments about vaccination during his online video call fan sign event for SF9 ROWOON’S PHOTO ESSAY [ME, ANOTHER ME].

Rowoon had already set up an appointment for vaccination, but because his drama broadcast schedule could not be adjusted, he had not yet been able to get vaccinated. We are currently in the middle of adjusting his work schedule so that he can get vaccinated and he will complete his vaccination as soon as possible.

We hope that there will be no misunderstanding from the select extraction of comments without context from the fan sign event and ask that people refrain from malicious comments.

We regret that this precious time between Rowoon and the fans who love him was degenerated like this, and we apologize for causing concern to those who cherish Rowoon. In future, we will continue to do our best to protect our artists.

Thank you."
