Song Sam Dong’s Illness

If you are at episode 12~14 in Dream High, you will know that Sam Dong has an illness that has something to do with his hearing/ear. The drama never specifies and all they say is that he will have hearing loss from time to time, and there is a buzzing sound is his ear. Is this a fake kind of illness or is there a name for this?

Ahh, just figured out what it was! based on one simple line in episode 12~
Anyway, Sam Dong has tinnitus, or basically a ringing sound in the ear, and apparently, he has a temporary but complete loss of hearing for a set amount of time, and it’s random. Poor Sam Dong!!

One more drama recommendation: Dream High

>> Dream High

–Kirin High School is full of ambitious people who strive towards being a successful person in the entertainment industry. Major change is brought about when a rumored director, played by Bae Yong Joon, enters the school.

–Go Hye Mi is a very tempestuous girl whose dream of becoming a prosperous musician is shattered by the debts of her father, and with this reason, she is constantly harrased by debt collectors, one group in particular. One day, her “follower”, Yoon Baek Hee, unknowingly sends her to the lairs of the debt collector, thinking he was her personal driver. However, it is not exactly ill-intentioned, as the debt collector proposes a plan of her entering the “hateful” Kirin High school, and thus becoming a famous musician and paying off debts. She and Baek Hee go together to the audition and sing a duet, and unexpectedly, Baek Hee is chosen instead of Hye Mi, and so begins the tale of her journey and working her way towards being a musician.

Oh, Korean dramas, what have you done to my life? :D

* sigh *
why do we even watch them? Is it because we want to see the end of the story? Or is it because we have nothing to do? No matter the reason, I’m pretty sure we’ve all asked ourselves this. And I have to be honest, I still don’t know why! All I know is, watching Korean dramas relieves a lot of stress, and makes me want to watch even more, for me anyway 😉

I do have some recommended dramas for you drama people, along with a very brief summary:

>>My Princess
Main Characters: Lee Sul, Park Hae Young
Lee Sul has never remembered much about her childhood, only a vague memory of her father promising to come back for her, but that promise was never fullfilled. She later figures out that she is related to the royal family of Korea, in which her father was the hidden son of the last emperor. Hilarity ensues as Lee Sul tries to adapt to her “royal life”, with Hae Young as her guide.

>>Secret Garden
Main Characters: Gil Ra Im, Kim Joo Won
Ra Im is a stuntwoman who one day meets Joo Won by chance. Once they depart, Joo Won can’t help but to think about her, and his yearning leads to some crazy actions and “stalking” on his part. Ra Im comes to like Joo Won, but there comes an issue of her being poor, and that becomes an obstacle in their relationship. Fate brings them together later on, when they both discover a shocking part of their past that they had not known about, partly due to their switching of bodies every time it rains.

>>Paradise Ranch
Main characters: Li Da Ji, Han Dong Joo
A loving couple married at the age of 19 breaks up 6 months later. The series talks about their journey as separate people. Granted, this series just recently started, so I don’t know too much… 😛
