On February 16, TXT‘s Yeonjun tested positive for COVID-19. BIGHIT MUSIC released a statement regarding his condition to Weverse.
Previously, he had tested negative for COVID-19 on Saturday. At the time, he had experienced symptoms of a headache. A few days later, he began to experience additional symptoms, so he was tested again.
This is BIGHIT MUSIC.
We would like to provide you with some information regarding the health of TOMORROW X TOGETHER member YEONJUN.
YEONJUN had felt unwell including having a headache on Saturday the 12th and took the PCR test after visiting the hospital of which came back negative. Since then, he went into preemptive quarantine away from the other members. He later started to present other mild symptoms such as a mild fever and sore throat, and took another PCR test on Wednesday the 16th, and was diagnosed with COVID-19 this morning.
YEONJUN completed two rounds of COVID-19 vaccinations, and is not presenting any extraordinary symptoms other than a mild fever and sore throat. He is currently undergoing treatment at home while waiting for further guidelines from the health care authorities.
None of the TOMORROW X TOGETHER members other than YEONJUN are presenting any symptoms, and everyone received negative results from the self-tests they took today.
The company places the artists’ health as our top priority, and we will do everything we can to aid YEONJUN in his speedy recovery. We will also diligently cooperate with the requests and guidelines of the health care authorities.

Weverse is, of course, the main platform on which MOAs and TXT communicate. So, Yeonjun soon saw MOAs’ messages to him and responded.
One MOA listed get-well tips for Yeonjun…
He listened to MOA’s orders well! We don’t need to worry; he’ll certainly take care!
Likewise, another advised him not to be ill. So, he agreed!
MOA: Get well soon, Yeonjun. Don’t be sick!
Yeonjun also reassured MOAs on his current condition. So, when he was asked if he was okay, he let MOAs know he’s “stronger” than COVID-19!
MOA: Yeonjun, are you okay?
Yeonjun: Of course!
Yeonjun: I’m stronger [than the virus].
MOA: + Yes, you are! Get a lot of rest.
We don’t have to worry about him not eating either. He’s got MOAs keeping a close eye on him.
MOA: Oppa, if you lose even a 0.1 kilogram of weight, you’re going to be in big trouble!
Yeonjun: I’m eating really well though, so no worries!
MOA: + CHOI YEONJUN T-T I’m shaking, oh my god. This is crazy, I love you. Thank you for replying! But I’m serious, don’t lose any weight!
Besides, Yeonjun already has plans for his next meal. He’s going to get pho!
MOA: Choi Yeonjun, eat a lot of pho. I work at a pho restaurant. If you place an order, I’ll send you some extra food. So order! Haha.
Yeonjun: I actually plan on getting pho tomorrow.
As they say, “Laughter is the best medicine.” So, a MOA shared a meme…
What do you call valentine’s day you celebrate on your own? It’s valenmine’s day! HAHAHA!
— Meme’s caption
Basically, “Tine” in Korean sounds like “someone else.” The joke is if the chocolate doesn’t come from “tine,” and you supply your chocolate yourself, it’s “mine.”
Yeonjun even asked MOAs to stop worrying.
MOA: Oppa, are you doing better now?
Yeonjun: Yup, yup! So everyone, stop worrying! I’m seriously fine. I’m okay!
MOA: + Oppa, this is the first time I’ve gotten a reply from you. I love you a lot, so please don’t be sick. Can’t wait to have you back better and healthier. #Replied
Yeonjun may have gotten infected. Still, as he said before, he is stronger than COVID-19 itself!
MOA: Choi Yeonjun, you kick that COVID’s butt so you can come back to MOAs!
Yeonjun: Dumb COVID! Haha
Yeonjun: I might have gotten infected
Yeonjun: But the virus got nothing on me!
MOA: + OMG Yeonjun T_T I’ll kick COVID’s butt with you T-T I love you!
So, MOAs, we have nothing to worry about. We can trust Yeonjun.
MOA: I wonder if Choi Yeonjun is alright.
Yeonjun: Mm-hmm. Totally okay, don’t worry~
On the bright side, Yeonjun not only reassured MOAs but he promised to interact even more on Weverse during his recovery time. As a result, we can look forward to many more conversations with him like this.
MOA: LOL. I love that we still get to talk to you like this.
Yeonjun: I’ll be here more often, while I recover.
Yeonjun: I guess it’s not so horrible since I get to talk to MOAs a lot more this way~
MOA: + I LOVE YOU OPPA T-T Oh gosh, my heart is racing.
MOAs are relieved to hear Yeonjun is doing okay. We will continue to wish him a full recovery soon!
