Group SEVENTEEN, who made a comeback with their 8th mini album, will go into self-quarantine due to contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19. As a result, the new album activities are postponed.

Seventeen's agency, Pledis Entertainment, announced on the 19th, "Seventeen's 8th mini album activities have been postponed." SEVENTEEN was scheduled to release their 8th mini album 'Your Choice' on the 18th and start activities.

According to the agency, SEVENTEEN filmed for their 8th mini album comeback on the 15th, and one member of the parent company Hive and one outsourced staff member who participated in this schedule were diagnosed with Corona 19 on the 18th and 19th, respectively.

Seventeen confirmed negative for infection through a self-diagnosis kit on the evening of the 17th, when the first confirmed patient showed symptoms for the first time. Currently, Seventeen members are known to have no symptoms of infection, such as fever or respiratory disease.

All other personnel who participated in the site on the 15th also preemptively received self-diagnosis kits and PCR tests, and all but two tested negative.

However, on the evening of the 19th, quarantine authorities classified all personnel who participated in the schedule on the 15th, including Seventeen, as close contacts, and requested that they self-quarantine from the night of the 19th to the 29th.

As a result, SEVENTEEN postponed all activities related to the 8th mini album, including 'SBS Inkigayo' and online fan signing, which were scheduled to appear on the 20th.

The agency said, "We ask for your understanding from fans and media and broadcasting station officials who have been waiting for a comeback for a long time. .
