With the introduction of the MERS epidemic, over 2300 people have been reported to be quarantined with 1300 school closings.

Currently standing with a death toll of five and at least forty four infected, the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome virus has been a major concern in South Korea. Day by day the fears grow as more people in South Korea are becoming infected with the disease.

The majority of people wear face masks in order to lower their risk of contracting the disease while carrying out their daily activities. Currently over 2300 have been quarantined and at least 1381 schools have been closed for the time being.

At the same time, people were frustrated because the government was not doing much to help the people. Most importantly, they did not announce which hospitals contained the infected patients. Three weeks later, the pressure from the people forced the government to reveal more information on what to do and where to avoid.

Most of the school closings are in Gyeonggi where the disease was first introduced by a South Korean air force member who was stationed in the United States.

South Korea has asked over 1500 people to self quarantine due to the event that they had attended an event where an infected doctor was present. They are to stay at home in order to prevent the spread of the disease.

Besides Saudi Arabia, South Korea has had one of the biggest cases of MERS. However, it is not only South Korea who is suffering from this epidemic at the moment. There have been about 1179 cases of MERS found in over 25 different countries which included the United States and Saudi Arabia.

Viewers got a more than they expected on this week’s Running Man when Kim Jong Kook was unexpectedly stripped naked against his will.

Aired on June 7th, the historical themed episode featured the Running Man cast as rich merchants from the Joseon Dynasty against BIGBANG and Kim Jong Kook as Roman gladiators.

During the water basketball showdown, Lee Kwang Soo – as per norm as the “Icon of Betrayal” – took it upon himself to sabotage Kim Jong Kook and with the help of Yoo Jae Suk – who ripped his shirt off – managed to take off the singer’s shorts leaving him quite bare. Fortunately (unfortunately?) he was hidden underneath the sandy water as he sat in a fetus position.

Yoo Jae Suk brings Kim Jong Kook’s underwear back laughing, wringing the water out for him before trying to “air dry” it on the long microphone stand.

Bobby Kim is facing imprisonment and probation for his recent drunk and sexual misdemeanour while inflight.


During his first court appearance on June 1st, the Incheon Courts under the ruling of Judge Shim Dong Young dictated that Bobby Kim should receive 1 year imprisonment with labor, 2 years parole and 5 million won in fine. It was presented as the singer faced charges over his drunken and sexual behaviour onboard a Korean Air flight back in January.

Bobby Kim is reported to have admitted to the charges presented and asked for leniency as he was specifically cited for sexual harassment and aviation security law violations.

During investigations, the singer was quoted confessing, “There were problems with seating arrangement that did not get resolved and thus, while sitting in the economy section, I drank 6 glasses of wine in order to fall asleep” and mentioned, “Although I do remember causing a disturbance on the flight, I do not remember the exact details due to being intoxicated.”

A number of comments about the possible imprisonment are as follows:

[+ 6955, – 134] Wow… 1 year of imprisonment. That seems a bit harsh.

[+ 611, – 7] Is Bobby Kim worse than the one who caused a disturbance over peanuts?

[+ 477, – 18] The peanut lady is on parole yet 1 year of imprisonment for Bobby Kim? It must be the money.
