Korean actress Hwang Jung-eum [MBC]
Hwang had recently been examined for the dreaded flu strain after having visited the hospital with a high fever and other symptoms of a cold, as well as receiving a vaccination shot and medicine as a precautionary measure. The hospital confirmed today, however, that the 25-year-old actress had picked up the virus.
Core Contents went onto explain that Hwang has been hospitalized with doctors advising her to halt all activities for a week while she receives medical care.
Hwang is the latest in a string of celebrities who had come down with the flu starting early September last year.
She debuted as a singer in 2002 with the now-disbanded girl group Sugar and has been regaining popularity after appearing in MBC reality show "We are Married" last year with her boyfriend Kim Yong-joon.
