Lisa of the K-pop group Blackpink has tested positive for COVID-19, her agency revealed in a statement on Wednesday. Three other members of the all-female group - Jisoo, Jennie and Rose- are awaiting their test results.
“This is YG Entertainment. BLACKPINK’s Lisa was diagnosed with COVID-19 this. The other three BLACKPINK members have not been classified as close contacts yet, but they immediately received PCR tests after hearing of Lisa’s positive COVID-19 results, and they are currently awaiting their results,” the statement read.
It further said: “We first shared this information quickly and accurately with representatives and staff, and we took strong pre-emptive measures even beyond the guidelines of health authorities. We will continue to not hold back on providing full support with the health of our artists and related staff members as the top priority. If there are any changes in the future, we will once again notify you quickly.”
Lisa is one of the most popular faces of K-Pop, with a legion of fans. In September, Lisa set a YouTube record with her debut single ‘Lalisa’. The single became the most-viewed music video by a solo artist in 24 hours with 73.6 million views, dethroning Taylor Swift’s ‘ME!’.
