Red Velvet’s promotion activities, which have just begun recently, have been put on hold.
According to the agency, Seulgi had completed the second dose of vaccination but was confirmed to have Covid-19 due to a breakthrough infection. She has not developed any special symptoms and is currently in self-isolation.
SM Entertainment said, “Following the guidelines of the quarantine authorities, all of the group’s activities have been stopped immediately and she is being self-isolated”, adding, “Wendy received a ‘negative’ result in the pre-emptive self-diagnosis kit test but she will also take an additional PCR test”.
Due to Seulgi’s Covid-19 confirmation, Red Velvet’s scheduled music broadcasts, such as Mnet’s “M Countdown” and KBS’s “Music Bank”, were all canceled.
Earlier, other members (Irene, Joy, and Yeri) were also confirmed to have Covid-19 ahead of the group’s comeback. As a result, Red Velvet’s concert, which was scheduled to be held on the 19th and 20th of this month, has been temporarily postponed.
Meanwhile, Red Velvet released a new mini-album called “The ReVe 2022 – Feel The Rhythm” on March 21st and began carrying out promotion activities.
