EXO's Xiumin and D.O revealed to be going through medical treatment

Earlier today, on the 5th of July, it was discovered that EXO's Xiumin tested positive for COVID-19. It was reported that he had taken a test earlier, on the 29th of July, and the report came back negative. However, after a change in his symptoms and wellness, he took another test which turned out positive.

All of the EXO members, as well as their staff, were immediately tested and are currently in self-quarantine. Other staff from all the venues and recording areas that Xiumin had visited for work were also informed, including Xiumin's fellow actors from the "Hadestown" musical he was cast in.

Fans also found out that EXO's D.O had recently been seeking medical help for his issues with his neck and was receiving professional spinal therapy for the same.

Upon receiving the news regarding both incidents, EXO-Ls (the official name of EXO fans) mass-tweeted out supportive and encouraging messages for the two, wishing them a fast recovery.


Earlier this year, it was confirmed that Xiumin would be starring as a lead actor in the Korean version of the musical "Hadestown," alongside cast members Park Kang-hyun and Jo Hyung-gyun. He is also set to star in a brand new web reality show titled "Xiumin’s Tennis King Tomorrow."

At the tail-end of July, D.O released his multilingual solo debut album, "Empathy," containing eight tracks.

Last month, BTOB's Minhyuk, TREASURE's Junghwan, Ateez's San, and NOIR's Kim Minhyuk were just some of the idols that have tested positive. Many Korean celebrities outside of the K-pop industry were also afflicted with the sickness as well.
