The news comes less than a day after SM Entertainment announced that Red Velvet member Wendy has been diagnosed with COVID-19 and would have to be quarantined, due to measures mandated by the South Korean government, per Soompi.
In addition, member Joy also recently announced that she would step back from all scheduled activities due to the “poor condition” of her health. “Joy will not participate in any schedules for the time being and will instead take a break to recover her health,” SM Entertainment had said, adding that “this decision was made following thorough discussions with Joy, looking out for her health”.
It is currently unclear if other dates on Red Velvet’s ‘R to V’ world tour will be affected by these events.
