Just two days into 2NE1‘s comeback, and member Park Bom has fallen ill. A YGE representative reported that Bom showed flu symptoms, had trouble “waking” (I think they could have meant “getting.” The flu can cause terrible headaches that make anything other than lying down difficult) up, and was taken to the hospital and given a drip. Bom’s September 13th work schedule has been canceled while she rests.
IMO: Koreans seem to be VERY health conscious.  There are so many stories about idols getting sick and being rushed to the hospital. Whenever I get sick I just take some over-the-counter medicine and stay home. I know the flu can be deadly in certain circumstances, but most of the time it just calls for  a few days off. (We all know idols could use a few of those)
