While the fact that 5-member male group SS501’s leader Kim HyunJoong caught H1N1 flu virus is made known to the public, it is expected that they will continue to be the Korean Airport Ambassador.
KAC representative revealed to Money Today Star News on 9-Sep “We heard that Kim HyunJoong was infected with H1N1. However, this will not affect Kim HyunJoong and his group SS501’s status as our ambassadors will remain unchanged.”
