South Korean group PENTAGON’s member Jinho tested positive for Covid-19 on Wednesday, as announced by their label Cube Entertainment in an official statement. “Jinho initially checked that he tested positive using a self-testing kit. Afterwards, he carried out a PCR test, and he ultimately received a positive test today (February 23),” the label mentioned in the statement.

Meanwhile, OH MY GIRL’s Hyojung “tested positive through a test she preemptively carried out using a self-testing kit, so she immediately carried out a PCR test and received a positive test result for COVID-19 this morning (February 23),” said Hyojung’s label WM Entertainment in a statement.
The artist has completed three doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. She has “currently halted all activities and is taking rest and the necessary measures in keeping with guidelines set by government health authorities,” stated the label.
