Despite her enormous popularity, Blackpink member Lisa was not exempted from contracting the Covid-19 after she was confirmed to have been infected with the coronavirus.
UH oh! One of the K-Pop royalties tested positive for the coronavirus.
With more than 60 million followers, Lisa is the most popular K-pop star on Instagram. Undoubtedly, Blackpink is the most popular girl group from South Korea.
But popularity is no match for Covid-19 after one of the band’s members Lisa Manoban was confirmed to be positive for the virus last night.
Daum, a media outlet in South Korea, reported that Blackpink's agency YG Entertainment said Lisa was diagnosed with the coronavirus on Wednesday and the firm was waiting for the results of RT-CPR tests conducted on three other members of the band.
Below is the statement of YG Entertainment regarding Lisa’s health.
“This is YG Entertainment. BLACKPINK’s Lisa received test results that confirm her as positive for COVID-19 this afternoon on November 24.
The other three members of BLACKPINK have not yet been deemed as close contacts but as soon as Lisa received positive test results, they underwent the PCR test and are waiting for the results.
The company will share the relevant news accurately and quickly and have been following the directions of the health authorities at a strict level.
In the future as well, we will not spare any expense to place the health of our artists and the staff around them first. We will quickly inform you again if there are changes to the situation.”
While fans are worried about Lisa’s health, they are naturally worried for the other members, and the girls have been known to reunite in South Korea.
Lisa flew back to South Korea recently from her United States trip for her promotions for her solo album ‘La Lisa’.
The other Blackpink members Jenie and Rose are also known to have travelled to the USA for their own schedules and solo activities.
Meanwhile, Jisoo is actively filming for her drama in South Korea which makes her the only member to not have been outside their country.
We’re all hoping for your speedy recovery Lisa!
