Get well soon, Xiao.

UP10TION‘s Xiao has just become the third member of the group to have tested positive for the Coronavirus.

TOP MEDIA just announced the news in their update about the group regarding their Coronavirus situation.

Hello, this is TOP MEDIA.

UP10TION members Bitto and Kogyeol, who previously tested positive for the Coronavirus, were discharged from the hospital on December 13 and 14 respectively after following the orders of the health authorities.

Coronavirus tests conducted during their self-isolation period showed that Bitto was negative, and Kogyeol was positive. Kogyeol was informed that he was asymptomatic and not a threat to transmit the disease, and that he could return to the public sphere but for safety reasons, he will undergo further tests and remain in self-quarantine.

Kuhn, Sunyoul, Gyujin, Hwanhee, and Xiao were all tested following their two week quarantine as close contacts. On December 15, the results showed Kuhn, Sunyoul, Gyujin, and Hwanhee all tested negative while Xiao tested positive. Kuhn, Sunyoul, Gyujin, and Hwanhee have no symptoms and are able to return to their daily lifestyle due to their negative test.

Xiao is self-isolating in a separate location and is currently asymptomatic, and will follow the procedures set by the health authorities.

Once again, we will do our best to manage our hygiene and artists.


Earlier this month, Bitto was the first member to test positive. Following his positive test, all of UP10TION were required to get tested, leading to Kogyeol’s positive test.
