On April 3, it was confirmed by his agency, SV Records, that he tested positive for the virus and is currently receiving treatment at a hospital in Seoul.
On March 24, Yunhak returned to Korea from Japan after completing his schedule, and 2 days ago on April 1, he tested positive for the Coronavirus.
The result from his test showed he had a mild case of the virus, and he is currently hospitalized to receive treatment. We think it will be possible for him to recover quickly because the symptoms he is showing are light.
