Well-loved Korean actor Ji Chang Wook has tested positive for COVID-19.

Earlier today, his agency, Glorious Entertainment, confirmed the unfortunate news to SPOTV News. “Ji Chang Wook has tested positive for COVID-19. He is currently under quarantine and treatment in accordance with the guidelines of the health authorities,” the agency said.

The charming and multi-faceted star has been busily preparing for his next drama project. Before his diagnosis, he was filming the upcoming Netflix original series The Sound of Magic together with Hwang In Yeop and Choi Sung Eun.
