A day after Jungwon announced that he has "been safely discharged/released," Jay shares the good news that he, too, is COVID-free. He wrote: "Thanks to Enjin, I returned to good health. I want to see other members to come out soon."

The hashtags #ENHYPEN_JUNGWON and #ENHYPEN_JAY trended on Twitter thereafter, with fans rejoicing about the news.
