On May 26, Mijoo’s agency Antenna took to the artist’s Twitter account to share the following statement announcing her COVID-19 diagnosis:
Hello, this is Antenna.
This announcement is regarding our agency artist Mijoo’s COVID-19 diagnosis and future schedules.
On May 26 (Friday), Mijoo felt body ache symptoms, and after confirming a positive result on her self-test kit, we immediately visited the hospital where she was diagnosed with COVID-19.
As a result, Mijoo is unable to attend the live shows of “Music Bank,” which she was scheduled to appear on today, as well as “Music Core” and “Inkigayo.” We also announce that the fan signings scheduled on May 27 and 28 for the release of [Mijoo’s] single album “Movie Star” have been temporarily postponed.
We will make another announcement later on regarding the fan signing as well as Mijoo’s return to activities. We ask for fans’ understanding.
As we comply with quarantine guidelines, we will prioritize the health and safety of our artist and support Mijoo so she may focus on treatment and recovery.
Mijoo has been busily promoting her first single album “Movie Star” after making her solo debut earlier this month.
Wishing Mijoo a speedy recovery!
