Yoonhak was diagnosed with COVID-19 on April 1, shortly after his landing in Korea from Japan, but his case stirred up controversy when it was revealed that he visited a prostitute in Gangnam, who was later also diagnosed with COVID-19.
Regarding the rumors accusing Yoonhak of infecting the prostitute, Yoonhak claimed,
I never entered the adult entertainment establishment. I just dropped by to meet with Ms. A on my way home.
Before testing positive for COVID-19 in Korea, most of Yoonhak’s activities took place in Japan, but all of his upcoming schedules in both Japan and Korea have now been put to a halt.
