Astro is a popular South Korean Boyband consisting of Mj, Jinjin, Cha Eunwoo, Moonbin, Rocky and Sanha under Fantagio Entertainment. They debuted in the year 2016.
Sanha came back positive for COVID-19 upon developing mild cold symptoms, according to ASTRO’s agency Fantagio, on April 23. Sanha and Moonbin were both infected with the virus at the beginning of March, but both managed to recover in time for their unit’s return later that month.
Fantagio Entertainment has released statement regarding this:
“Hello. This is Fantagio.
On April 22, our artist ASTRO’s Yoon Sanha used a self-test kit [for COVID-19] as a precautionary measure because his health had taken a turn for the worse, and his test result was negative.
However, because his condition continued to worsen, he underwent a rapid antigen test, and his test results came back positive today (April 23). At the moment, Yoon Sanha only has mild cold symptoms, and he plans to focus entirely on treatment and recovery in accordance with the guidelines of government health authorities.
Due to their paths overlapping, the other five members of ASTRO aside from Yoon Sanha all immediately underwent rapid antigen tests, and their test results came back negative.
Therefore, it will be difficult for ASTRO’s Yoon Sanha to participate in his scheduled activities, and we will make another announcement about our artist’s return to activities after the date of his release from quarantine has been confirmed.
Additionally, Moonbin & Sanha’s “REFUGE” video call and fan signing event that was scheduled for April 23 and April 24 has been postponed, and we will make an announcement regarding rescheduling at a later date.
We ask for your understanding regarding the fact that we have given many people cause for concern. We will continue to consider the health of our artists and staff our top priority, and we will do our utmost to ensure that our artist makes a quick recovery while adhering to the guidelines of government health authorities.-Fanatagio
We wish for Sanha’s speedy recovery!
