[English] DCLSG Comic Strip~ Seung Gi’s Day

I ran across this comic strip early this morning and thought “What a shame I can’t share it with International Airens.” Blogging English translations after the comic strip is a bit cumbersome to read since I don’t have the software to white out the Korean and insert English. Many wonderful Airens volunteered to help out, so for now, I will blog a “rough draft” of translations so that English translations can be inserted instead of Korean. Thanks for your understanding! Meanwhile, see how many of his CF products you can count. There were so many comments on dclsg about  Chambbong’s ingenuity of incorporating so many of them into a single comic strip 🙂  She made this in commemoration of Seung Gi’s 10th Debut Anniversary. See how many CF products you can find that he endorsed in the past 10 years! ^^day1

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.

medifoam12The back of the boxes. I hope this helps you get an idea of what they are like in real life. 🙂

Seung Gi is the New CF model for Medifoam~ HQ Pics

Medifoam is a high end bandage designed to prevent scars from forming during the healing process.  It’s expensive although very comfortable for blisters and large wounds. I was just in my hospital’s pharmacy today, and saw them for sale. I didn’t think much of it until I checked twitter during lunchtime and saw Seung Gi was endorsing it. I’ll have to stop by the pharmacy tomorrow morning during work and ask the pharmacist if she has any posters. 🙂 She knows I’m an Airen and saves posters for me if she has extras.  I’ll also double check the price and post an update tomorrow. ^^ Seung Gi really looks good with kids. This CF is no exception.
