Japan is in the midst of a H1N1 Flu (Swine flu) outbreak right in the middle of the Japanese leg of Tohoshinki’s Asia tour.
One entertainment company, Johnny’s Jimusho, has already postponed concerts in Japan’s Kansai region. The company managing TVXQ in Japan, Avez Group, has not announced any postponements of TVXQ shows just yet.
Some fans have began to worry, while a few fans on English forums have openly brought up the idea of postponing the shows to help maintain the group’s health.
According to the AFP News agency, the H1N1 virus has hit some of the most populous areas of Japan, and a total of 267 cases have been reported thus far.
There is talk that Korean scientists have succeeded in developing a human vaccine against it, reports AsianNews.it.
As of this writing, Tohoshinki had flown back to their native South Korea.
South Korea has quarantined a Vietnamese man after he showed flu-like symptoms at Incheon International airport, along with 27 passengers and attendants who were on the flight with him.
