A member of the third-generation of Baby V.O.X. is under careful watch as to whether she has the H1N1 influenza after a promotional tour to Thailand, said record company DR Music Thursday.
The group was in Bangkok for a promotional tour from July 9 to 11 after which the member, identified by the last name Kim, caught a fever and began showing cold symptoms Wednesday. She arrived at the Gangnam public clinic Thursday afternoon, where she has been examined and quarantined. The clinic has not diagnosed her with having contracted flu, but will give it a week before determining whether her symptoms are those of full-fledged H1N1 influenza.
The members were tested after the news that the Thai DJ who interviewed the girl-group has been quarantined with the influenza, a spokesman from DR Music said.
Baby V.O.X., a popular South Korean female band, has been making an effort to become a multi-national group. This is their third re-incarnation after they first debuted in 1997 and are currently searching for their last member from abroad. Auditions will be held in Thailand on Aug. 15 and in China on Sept. 15. (Korea Times)
