BTS member, Jungkook, has been screened for COVID-19 following his trip with fellow artists
BTS member, Jungkook, has been screened for COVID-19 following his trip with fellow artists to an international tourist hotspot encompassing the epicenter of LGBTQ nightlife. Like tens of thousands of young visitors screened for safety, he was not infected with the highly contagious virus. Big Hit Entertainment apologized and belatedly admitted Jungkook's visit to Itaewon following new reports that he and other celebrities including singer-actor Cha Eun-woo, boy band NCT member Jaehyun and boy band SEVENTEEN member Mingyu had a night meeting in Itaewon on April 25. Itaewon, a shopping and entertainment district near central Seoul, is well known for exotic restaurants and entertainment facilities including dance clubs and bars, some of them a regular by the LGBTQ community. It became the epicenter of a new COVID-19 outbreak that left approximately 170 people infected since the first patient was detected on May 6. "Since his visit, there have been no symptoms of COVID-19 such as coughing or fever, and he was voluntarily examined at a screening clinic and tested negative. Currently, the artist himself deeply regrets that he has not faithfully participated in an all-out social campaign for social distancing," Big Hit said in a statement. Similar apologies came from the agencies of Cha Eun-woo, Jaehyun and Mingyu, who all tested negative.

防弹少年团成员征国和其他艺人一起去过在世界著名旅游景点的夜店后，接受了COVID-19检测。像成千上万的年轻游客一样，他没有感染这种高传染性病毒。Big Hit娱乐公司表示道歉并承认征国在上个月25日晚与歌手兼演员车银优，男团NCT成员郑在玹，Seventeen 成员珉奎等艺人，去过梨泰院聚会。梨泰院是首尔市中心附近的一个购物和娱乐区，这里以异国情调的餐馆和娱乐设施闻名，包括舞厅和酒吧，其中一些是LGBTQ社区的常客。自5月6日发现第一例患者以来，该地区感染患者达到170名左右，已成为新冠性肺炎疫情爆发的中心。Big Hit公司在声明中表示“征国访问后，没有出现咳嗽或发烧等COVID-19症状，他自愿在一家检测诊所接受了检查，结果呈阴性。目前，本人对没有真诚参与一场保持社会距离的全面社会运动，深表遗憾。” 车银优、在玹、珉奎等的所属公司也发表类似的道歉，并表示他们新冠状性病毒检测结果为阴性。
