BTS’ Jungkook Tested Negative For Coronavirus & Thank Goodness

BTS’ Jungkook Tested Negative For Coronavirus & Thank Goodness”

Big Hit Entertainment apologized and belatedly admitted Jungkook's visit to Itaewon following new reports that he and other celebrities including singer-actor Cha Eun-woo, boy band NCT member Jaehyun and boy band SEVENTEEN member Mingyu had a night meeting in Itaewon on April 25.

Meanwhile, Mingyu and Jungkook didn't have official schedules.

The agencies of Jungkook, Eunwoo, Jaehyun and Mingyu issued a statement acknowledging the mistake made, indicating that these boys would be reflecting on their actions, but also reported that all of them have already been tested for the coronavirus and have given negative to said study. They had visited the neighbourhood in Seoul on April 25. He did not go to the problematic place where the patient in early May had the confirmed case, and he went about a week beforehand. "However, there is no excuse to this decision, as it showed that we clearly did not recognize the seriousness of social distancing during this time, as the artists' managing agency", the statement continued. We bow our heads to everyone in apology.

"In addition, we decided that it would not be appropriate to disclose the artists' personal daily life activities to the public because we voluntarily took measures such as taking the Coronavirus test, according to government guidelines".

This news also made fans of the idols angry and some of them said that even though they tested negative they followed self quarantine and did not step out of the house for 14 days.

At the beginning of May, South Korea, which effectively contained the spread of COVID-19, reported dozens of news cases after an infected person visited a party district in Seoul.

"He deeply reflects on his conduct that he did not comply with social distancing sincerely", Big Hit said. We will work harder to make sure this does not happen again. The place was both a club and a bar, where it would still be challenging to keep up with the social distancing protocol due to the establishment's nature. Regardless of the reasons, it was unwise for Cha Eunwoo, our artist, to visit Itaewon at a time where Koreans are practicing social distancing.

BTS members Jungkook has been screened for COVID-19 following his trip with fellow artists to an worldwide tourist hotspot encompassing the epicenter of LGBTQ nightlife. The 22-year-old tested negative for the virus, it added.

To sum it up, all of the idols are now reflecting on their mistakes on not practicing social distancing.
