Wishing actor Kim Sung Kyu a quick recovery!

Actor Kim Sung Kyu has been diagnosed with COVID-19.

Saram Entertainment, his agency, issued the following statement on March 16:

Hello, this is Saram Entertainment.

On March 15, before the press conference for “The King of Pigs,” actor Kim Sung Kyu conducted a self-testing kit for COVID-19 and attended the event after testing “negative.”

On the evening of the same day, Kim Sung Kyu took another self-testing kit and tested “positive.” He went to a nearby hospital and tested “negative” through a rapid antigen test, but he underwent PCR testing for accurate results and ultimately tested “positive” today.

Kim Sung Kyu completed the second dose of his COVID-19 vaccine. Currently, he has halted all activities and is in self-isolation while receiving treatment in accordance with the guidelines of the disease control authorities.

We will continue to comply with the guidelines of the disease control authorities and make every effort to ensure the health and safety of our actor.

Kim Dong Wook and Chae Jung An's agency, KeyEast Entertainment, confirmed that both actors tested negative for COVID-19 at a press conference with Kim Sung Kyu.

However, more "The King of Pigs" events have been canceled. "We have decided to cancel the scheduled Twitter Blueroom, stage greetings for the premiere, and GV to prevent further dissemination of COVID-19," a source from TVING said.

The thriller "The King of Pigs" follows people who relive their experiences as victims of violence as a result of the unexplained serial killings that begin when they receive a message from a buddy from 20 years ago. The drama explores the origins of school violence as well as the violence that pervades modern society through these tragic characters.

Hwang Kyung Min, played by Kim Dong Wook, is still haunted by the horror of the school violence he witnessed 20 years ago. Detective Jung Jong Suk will be played by Kim Sung Kyu, and charming detective Kang Jin Ah will be played by Chae Jung An.

The drama will broadcast on TVING on March 18th.
