Korean Drama or K-Drama refers to televised dramas in the Korean language made in South Korea, mostly in miniseries format with distinctive features that set them apart from television series and soap operas made elsewhere.
An unnamed 20-year old Chinese woman reportedly rushed to hospital and almost turns blind after binge-watching on her favorite Korean dramas in one sitting. The woman spent her day focused on her tablet watching 16 episodes of the Korean series “Cheese in the Trap” and two episodes of “Descendants of the Sun.” She reportedly took breaks only to eat and sleep.
She had all her lights turned off, and the light from her tablet was in front of her for hours. It was until she suffered a severe headache that she decided to stop and sleep. However, once she woke up, a severe, sharp pain suddenly shot through her eyes.
She was then rushed to hospital where doctors diagnosed her with glaucoma, a disease that damages one’s eye’s optic nerve. It is said that it happens when fluid builds up in the front part of your eye, damaging the optic nerve. It is also said that Glaucoma can lead to blindness.
