Siwon Choi of popular K-Pop boy band Super Junior has tested positive for COVID-19 and will not be participating in the group’s upcoming concert in Manila, Label SJ announced yesterday, Aug. 3, in a Twitter post.
The group’s agency said Siwon tested positive “while preparing for their overseas schedules,” particularly for the Super Junior World Tour Super Show 9: Road in Manila concert happening this Saturday, Aug. 6, at the Mall of Asia Arena. He’s currently in self-quarantine.
Pulp Live World, the event organizer in charge of the K-Pop group’s concert here in Manila, and Dream Maker Entertainment Ltd. released a statement on Twitter as well, detailing the artist line-up change.
