…and no, that’s not a movie allusion.
I wasn’t aware of this, but apparently Han Ji-min (Yi San, Capital Scandal) suffers from a condition called Meniere’s disease:
“A disorder of the inner ear that can affect hearing and balance. It is characterized by episodes of dizziness and tinnitus and progressive hearing loss, usually in one ear. It is caused by an increase in volume and pressure of the endolymph of the inner ear.” –Wikipedia
Her management revealed her condition not long ago, stating that her ailment isn’t severe, but leads to vertigo and dizziness when she’s tired. This is apparently news again now that she’s working on her new drama, SBS’s Cain & Abel with So Ji-sub, as well as the fact that [SPOILER!] a character in Beethoven Virus was recently disclosed to suffer from this disease. So does (another surprise) actor-director Yoo Ji-tae (Oldboy).
Huh. Well, then.
- Main cast almost complete for Cain & Abel
- “I am SO glad Yi San is finally ending!” “Tell me about it”
