Here is Big Hit Music’s statement on Taehyun:
“Hello. This is BIGHIT MUSIC.
“We would like to provide you with some information on TOMORROW X TOGETHER member TAEHYUN’s COVID-19 confirmation and his activities.
“TAEHYUN underwent a rapid antigen test on 5, Nov. after experiencing mild symptoms and was diagnosed with COVID-19.
“None of the TOMORROW X TOGETHER members other than TAEHYUN are presenting any symptoms, and everyone got negative results from the self-diagnosis test kit they took as a preemptive measure, today.
“Therefore, TOMORROW X TOGETHER will be participating ‘KBS Music Bank in Chile’ as 4 members without TAEHYUN on 12, NOV., Saturday.
“The company places the artists’ health as our top priority, and we will do everything we can to aid TAEHYUN in his speedy recovery. We will also diligently cooperate with the requests and guidelines of the health care authorities.”
