[English] Seung Gi’s New Medifoam CF

Credit: Medifoam

English translation:

SG: Camping in the weather these days, isn’t it really great? But if an injury occurred, it’s really upsetting, isn’t it?

Mom: Ouch! It’s hot!

SG: Aigoo, are you okay?

Caption by the bandage on her arm: Medifoam Silver (Kills bacteria and protects wounds)

Girl falls off the hammock and cries. Seung Gi rushes over to her.

SG: Are you okay? 

Female voiceover: Made out of material with 10 times the ability to absorb discharge (from wounds) and create a moist environment. Speeding up the healing process.

SG: We can’t let a wound ruin this good feeling.

SG: For wounds~ ♬ Medifoam from the start ♬

SG: Mundipharma Korea

Medifoam Bandages~ Photos I Took of Actual Products in a Korean Pharmacy

I’m very lucky to have a VERY understanding pharmacist. ^^ First it was with Berocca’s new CF poster, and now, Medifoam. She knows I’m an Airen and was unaware that Seung Gi was endorsing this high-end brand of bandages until I showed her his CF photos from my blog.

 Thanks to her graciousness and patience with my fan girling, I was able to take photos of all the Medifoam products I could. Of course I didn’t leave the pharmacy without purchasing something in return. So I bought a box of Berocca vitamins.  🙂

Medifoam1This box costs 8,000 South Korean Won, which is approximately $8 US dollars

Medifoam2The back of the box

medifoam7 medifoam9This is the box that Seung Gi was holding. It costs 6,500 Won or about $6.50 in US dollars.

medifoam4The Medifoam collection. It ranges from 6,500 Won  to 8,500 Won ($6.50 US ~ $8.50 US) depending on the size.

medifoam11Another view. The top boxes of bandages come in two different thickness, 2mm and 1mm. This brand is used for deeper wounds that ooze and for blisters with exposed skin. It is widely used in hospitals. I have seen it during my time working in the US and now in Korean hospitals as well.

Berocca~ Photos I Took in a Korean Pharmacy

I had to thank my pharmacist for letting me take photos of Medifoam, so here are photos of the Berocca effervescent tablet vitamins I bought for 20,000 Won. There are 30 tablets separately wrapped in 2 metallic tubes of 15 per box. It’s orange flavored and pretty tasty for a vitamin. 🙂

cam berocca singleHere’s a photo of a 15 tablet tube of Berocca. It costs 12,000 Won, so the 30 tablet box is a better deal, plus it is a month’s supply.

This is also orange flavored.
