Girls Planet 999 girl group Kep1er will be delaying their debut after one of their staff members tested positive for Covid-19.
In a statement shared on Kep1er’s official fancafe, Wake One and Swing Entertainment shared the news of the delay due to a staff members’ positive test.
Hello, this is Wake One and Swing Entertainment.
This is an announcement about the postponement of Kep1er’s activities, who were scheduled to debut on December 14.
On the morning of December 4, one of Kep1er’s staff members tested positive for Covid-19. As soon as the staff member start showing signs of symptoms, the Kep1er members all pre-emptively conducted tests, and all tests were negative. There are currently no symptoms of Covid-19 within the group, such as fever or respiratory difficulties.
All of the group’s staff have also been tested for Covid-19, and there have been no additional cases so far. All staff whose test results have yet to come out are still isolating.
Considering the health and safety of the members as our top priority, Kep1er’s activities and schedule has been completely suspended, so it is inevitable that we will need to postpone their debut schedule. We would like to apologize to the fans and officials who were waiting for Kep1er’s debut, and we will inform you of their schedule once their activities resume.
We will do our best to help our artist and staff work in the safest environment and actively cooperate with the health authorities’ instructions and guidelines.
