About LDH's artist infected with COVID-19

Thank you very much for your constant support to LDH and LDH's artists and talents.

LDH's artist Naoki Kobayashi (EXILE/J SOUL BROTHERS III from EXILE TRIBE) was diagnosed with COVID-19.

Taking into consideration the opinions of experts from "LDH expert group on the novel coronavirus infection control", we have been taking a temperature of everyone belonging to LDH and reporting their physical condition every day as the measures against COVID-19.

He reported on June 3 that he was feeling unwell and after taking a PCR test, he was diagnosed with COVID-19 today, June 4. Now, we are carefully taking actions according to instructions from the health center and experts.

Moreover, he will be absent from the make-up shows of "EXILE TRIBE LIVE TOUR 2021 'RISING SUN TO THE WORLD'" in Nagoya scheduled to be held from June 10 to June 12.

Plus, the live stream of J SOUL BROTHERS III scheduled to start from 20:00 today is also canceled. We are deeply sorry for the cancelation right before the start of the event.

We will continue doing our best to ensure safety of LDH artists, staff members and related people under the guidance of the expert group and government institutions. We will also continue implementing the necessary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
