A friend of mine texted me saying Leader is diagnosed with swine flu. I didn't want to believe it at first. But when I got home, it's all over the news. Hyun Joong is indeed sick with swine flu. We thought he's back in Korea but turns out he's still in Japan. Ohh, poor Leader. His immune system is apparently weak, possibly with all the stress he's been experiencing. Read the news from allkpop...


SS501 leader and Boys Over Flowers star, Kim Hyun Joong, has been diagnosed with swine flu. The singer turned actor was in Japan to promote his hit drama series over the weekend, from 5 - 6th September. During the promotions, he had shown signs of a fever and a headache, which caused him to miss his activities on the 6th.

A representative from DSP Media gave a formal statement saying, "Kim Hyun Joong was scheduled for a flight, at 12pm on the 7th of September, he had passed through immigration without any problems but later in the afternoon, due to a sudden change to his health, he was taken to the emergency room instead."

While in the ER, it was diagnosed that the star had swine flu, and the representative says that the star is being treated but has to remain under further observation for more tests, causing him to remain in Japan. Kim Hyun Joong's manager has been sent to the hospital to check on the matter and will inform the public with more details when available. It's not known whether his SS501 members and the other F4 cast were tested for symptoms of H1N1 upon arrival in Korea.

Hello, This is DSP.

Last week 5~6 Sept, when attending Boys Over Flowers event at Pacifico Yokohama, SS501's Leader, Kim Hyun Joong had some problems with his health.

On the 6th, he was suppose to attend Hanryu Fondue recording, but as he was down with slight fever, he did not attend. Kim Hyun Joong condition got better and was able to perform on stage on the very night as he had promised to the fans.

On the 7th, he was suppose to take the 12pm flight back to Korea when he was suddenly down with a high fever in the morning. He was sent to the hospital and was diagnosed with influenza (H1N1).

Kim Hyun Joong is now having treatment at one of the hospitals in Japan. The local doctor has given him Tamiflu and his condition has turned better. From now onwards, he will need to take a good rest in order to recover.

DSP Media related parties and manager are with him checking on this condition. Once his conditions become better, they have the intentions to bring him back to Korea.

Status of the upcoming activities are not confirmed.

*At the moment, was informed that Kim Hyun Joong's condition has become better already.

There might be changes to current schedule which has been confirmed.

We will announce once more when we have rearranged the schedule.

Thank you.

And another news article...

He is currently in a hospital in Tokyo as confirmed on the 8th. DSP says: "After finishing up promotion in Malaysia, Kim returned to Korea on 4th, then left for Japan on the 5th for the BOF promotion until 6th. During this time, he complained of vey high fever. Onthe 7th, he was transferred to Tokyo for diagnosis and through tests, confirmed on 8th that he has the new flu or the swine flu."

At one time his fever went up to 39.5 degrees Celsius, but after receiving treatment, his temperature is going down. However, he needs to be quarantined in the hospital for about 15 days. Even if he fully recovers, he still needs to stay in the hospital for 5 more days at least before he is certified to leave the country. The other SS501 members left on the 7th after confirming that they do not have any signs of the flu.

Besides the 4 staff members of another SBS Korean drama who caught the flu in Las Vegas, KHJ's case is the first entertainer to receive the diagnosis. This news is a shock to all.

At least the other SS501 boys weren't affected. I don't think Triple S fans can take it if all of them got sick! Hope Leader will recover soon! Let's pray for his fast recovery!

It's a good news that he's getting better and also to Young Saeng that he's already in Seoul.
