Popular singer-actor Lee Seung-gi has been diagnosed with the influenza A (H1N1) virus, becoming the latest in a string of entertainers who have come down with the flu.

"He was confirmed on Monday to have been infected with the swine flu. He showed some flu-like symptoms, visited a hospital several times and took Tamiflu on Sunday. The following day he was diagnosed with the flu", his agency said Wednesday.

It said Lee has already finished filming this week's episodes of KBS2 TV's reality show"Happy Sunday ― One Night Two Days", and SBS TV's talk show "Gangsimjang", which means strong heart.

However, he won't be able to participate in a concert in Los Angeles with pop sensation Son Dam-bi planned for Saturday.

"Lee will stay at home to concentrate on treatment, cancelling all other engagements", it said.

A number of entertainers have been infected with the virus, including Jo Kwon, leader of ballad group 2AM, who was diagnosed with the flu at the end of last month.

이승기 신종플루

인기 가수 겸 배우 이승기가 신종플루에 걸려 플루 진단을 받은 연예인 대열에 합류했다.

이승기 소속사는 11일 "이승기가 월요일 플루에 감염된 것으로 확인됐다. 감기 증상이 있어 여러 번 병원을 찾았고, 일요일 타미플루를 복용했다. 그리고 그 다음 날 플루 확진을 받았다"고 밝혔다.

소속사는 이승기가 이미 KBS2의 "해피선데이 1박2일"과 SBS의 "강심장' 이번 주 편 녹화를 마친 상태라고 덧붙였다.

하지만 오는 토요일 예정된 손담비와의 로스앤젤레스 콘서트에 이승기가 참가하기는 어려울 것으로 보인다.

소속사는 "이승기가 모든 약속을 취소하고 집에서 치료에 집중할 것"이라고 밝혔다.

최근 발라드 그룹인 2AM의 리더인 조권을 비롯해 많은 연예인들이 신종플루에 감염됐다.
