Last week there were rumors and reports of idols visiting Itaewon Clubs, made even more irresponsible as the clubs were the center of a resurgent outbreak. Gyuri and Mino owned up to it and apologized but there were unconfirmed reports of more idols also enjoying the nightlife. Today Dispatch lit up Monday morning news naming names – Jung Kook of BTS, Astro‘s Cha Eun Woo, NCT‘s Jaehyun, and Mingyu of Seventeen were at a restaurant and two clubs in Itaewon on the night of April 25th into the wee morning of the 26th. They reported did their promotions and events as normal afterwards rather than the required 14 day quarantine as requested by the government. Dispatch says thereafter they have been tested and all tested negative for COVID-19 though the quarantine is still required as the virus as stay dormant for 14 days before triggering a positive test. Welp, I’m expected K-netizens to go hard on these young men and not sure if their own fans will be ok with irresponsible conduct.
