We’re stronger together.

According to ENHYPEN‘s label, Belift Lab, Jungwon, Heeseung, Jay, Jake, and Sunghoon all tested positive for COVID-19 during their self-quarantine. As such, ENHYPEN will not perform at KCON:TACT, the online concert that is being held as an alternative to the annual, in-person festival, KCON.

Following the news, ENGENE began trending #AlwaysWithENHYPEN to show support for the members, wishing and praying for their speedy recovery. Jake was the first member to experience symptoms (coughing and fever), which prompted a PCR test.

Now, fans of many other K-Pop groups, including BTSSEVENTEENTXT, and Stray Kids are reaching out to ENGENE and tweeting well wishes with ENGENE’s trending hashtags. If there’s one thing the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us, it’s that we’re stronger together, even from afar.
