Heo Dong-won tested positive on the 20th, and Seo Yi-sook also had an examination immediately.”
“In addition, Seo Yi-sook visited the filming site of another work, ‘Startup’ after filming ‘Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol’ with Heo Dong-won. For this reason, after hearing Heo Dong-won’s confirmation of Covid-19 on the 20th, Seo Yi-sook immediately entered self-quarantine. The agency said, “We are waiting for the results of the Covid-19 test.” It added, “We will inform you of the exact facts as soon as the results of the test of Seo Yi-sook come out.” The results of Seo Yi-sook’s Covid-19 test are expected to be released on the 21st.
As Seo Yi-sook was tested for Covid-19 and entered self-quarantine, the filming of the new tvN drama ‘Startup’, which he was participating in, was stopped. An official from ‘Startup’ told Maeil Business Daily Star Today on the 20th, “Seo Yi-sook was tested for Covid-19 because the movement line overlapped with Heo Dong-won, who was confirmed for coronavirus. Currently, he is in self-quarantine and is waiting for the test results tomorrow (21st).” The official said, “We decided not to proceed with the scheduled shooting today, and we are closely monitoring the situation.”
The broadcaster caught an emergency when a coronavirus confirmed person came out.
