The singer turned actor was in Japan to promote his hit drama series over the weekend, from 5 - 6th September. During the promotion, 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, "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."
While in the ER, it was diagnosed that the star has swine flu, and the representative says that the star is being treated but has to remain under further observation to make any other report, thus 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.
