The past week has been quite difficult for TREASURE, as two members of the group were confirmed to have tested positive for COVID-19. Only a few days after Doyoung received his diagnosis on July 12, YG Entertainment revealed that the virus had also spread to Junghwan.
Recently, their fans (known as ‘Treasure Makers’ and ‘Teumes’) came together to create a “Get Well Soon” project for the boys and show their support. Thousands of Teumes all around the world have put their artistic abilities to use in order to share their encouraging messages.
A common feature in each image are two band-aids. These bandages symbolize the desire for both Doyoung and Junghwan’s healing not just physically but also mentally. COVID-19 obviously takes a huge toll on the body even if a person is asymptomatic, but it’s easy to forget how much fear and doubt it can spark as well.
Some Teumes have made cards with cute animals:
get well soon, my favorite boys🐰🐮

While others have chosen to represent Doyoung and Junghwan as the band-aids themselves:

A lot of Teumes even put their Korean skills to the test by writing sentiments in the boys’ native language:
