No Evidence Park Boram Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news created by anti-vaccine activists, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Park Boram Reportedly Suffered Cardiac Arrest

On Thursday night, 11 April 2024, Park Boram (born Park Bo-ram 박보람 on 1 March 1994) was drinking with two friends at a residence in Namyangju, Gyeonggi, when she excused herself to go to the washroom.

When Park Boram did not return for an extended period of time, her friends looked for her and found her “slouched over the sink, unconscious” at around 9:55 PM. They called for an ambulance, while one of her friends performed CPR, and attempted to revive her.

Park Boram was reportedly suffering from a cardiac arrest when the police and emergency services reached her. She was transported t to the Hanyang University Guri Hospital, while receiving CPR, but was ultimately declared dead at 11:17 PM.

Fact #2 : Cause of Death + Autopsy Report Not Revealed Yet

An autopsy was conducted on Park Boram on Saturday, 13 April 2024, to determine her cause of death, while the police is conducting its own investigation into her death.

Until and unless the police, the coroner or her family announces her cause of death, or releases her autopsy report, anyone who claims that Park Boram died suddenly from the COVID-19 vaccine is likely lying to you.

Fact #3 : Heavy Drinking Can Cause Sudden Cardiac Death

Park Boram was reportedly drinking heavily before her sudden collapse and death. This is important, as alcohol is known to have “an immediate effect on cardiac rhythm“, and previous studies have shown that “a notable proportion of sudden cardiac deaths (SCD) occur after alcohol intake“.

  • 2022 Finnish study suggests that majority of alcohol-related SCD occur at the late stage of inebriation.
  • 2024 Korean study suggests that moderate and heavy drinking was associated with significantly increased risk of atrial fibrillation

The autopsy will determine whether Park Boram’s alcohol consumption was a contributing factor to her death. So please wait for the autopsy report, and/or her cause of death, to be revealed.

Fact #4 : Unknown If Park Boram Was Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Despite claims or suggestions that Park Boram was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that she ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Park Boram was unvaccinated against COVID-19, because the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the South Korea.

In fact, many people who were injured or died suddenly were actually unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, Shane Macaulay, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless her family (or the authorities) reveal her COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Park Boram was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

Fact #5 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear With Hours / Days

Even if Park Boram was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, she would have received her doses more than two years ago! She cannot possibly have suffered from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination. Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days or weeks.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Did RM Reject Offer To Disband BTS + Go Solo?!

Did RM reject an offer by HYBE to disband BTS and go solo, because the group was losing money?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : RM Rejected Offer To Disband BTS + Go Solo!

People are sharing a Music Mundial article which claims that RM (Kim Nam-joon) once rejected an offer by HYBE to disband BTS and go solo, because the group was losing money!

Here is the viral Music Mundial article. Please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

The decision that BTS’ RM made about a possible disbandment of the group

RM, the leading member of South Korean Kpop group BTS, had a tense moment when one of HYBE‘s executives made him a proposal that would suppose to the separation from the group. However, the idol acted with companionship and above all, with deep intelligence.

The impact that BTS has left on the South Korean Kpop industry is truly incalculable. However, their beginnings in 2013 were not easy at all, as HYBE, the company in charge of the septet that was previously called Big Hit, was not big enough to afford all the expenses.

Truth : RM Rejected Prank Offer To Disband BTS + Go Solo!

This is yet another example of celebrity FAKE NEWS created to generate page views, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : This Is A Very Old Story

Music Mundial suggested that HYBE (formerly Big Hit Entertainment) offered RM the opportunity to disband BTS and go solo in 2013. The truth is – this actually happened in 2014.

Whether it’s 2013 or 2014, it’s a very old story from 9-10 years ago! Why did Music Mundial bring this up today? After all, there was no recent news on BTS disbanding, or RM considering a solo career.

Was it a very slow day at Music Mundial, and they all had BS writer’s block? Or maybe they used generative AI to invent something viral about BTS, and this came up?

Fact #2 : HYBE Only Existed In March 2021

It is funny that Music Mundial should claim that HYBE Corporation offered RM to disband BTS, so he can go solo in 2013, when HYBE only existed some 7-8 years later!

Back in 2013, HYBE did not even exist. It was known from its founding on February 1, 2005 as Big Hit Entertainment Co., Ltd. Only in March 2021, did Big Hit Entertainment rebrand itself as the HYBE Corporation.

If RM was offered to disband BTS, it would have been made by Big Hit Entertainment, not HYBE. If Music Mundial cannot even get this basic fact right…

Fact #3 : It Was Just A Prank By Bang PD

This HYBE offer to disband BTS and have RM go solo was actually a prank that Bang Si-hyuk (also known as Bang PD) – the founder of HYBE / Big Hit Entertainment, played on RM.

During a special on Mnet’s 4 Things Show in 2014, Bang PD called RM into his office to criticise his leadership of BTS. Suga and J-Hope were in the room to help Bang PD with his prank, while the other BTS members were in another room, watching through hidden cameras.

As Bang PD criticising his leadership, RM is seen gritting his teeth in frustration. In the end, Bang PD asked him, “If you’re going to be like this, why don’t you just go solo?

RM just kept quiet, so after some time, Bang PD asked again, “Will you be okay with going solo?” RM then replied, “Yes“.

Bang PD prodded him further, “You’re not wanting to go solo, are you?” to which RM said, “No“.

This is where the climax came – Bang PD asked, “Let me ask you again, solo or Bangtan Boys?” and RM instantly responded, “Bangtan Boys“.

That was when Bang PD asked RM to “look at me, kid“, before smiling and telling him that he was on a hidden camera show!

Fact #4 : Bang PD Had Confidence In BTS

The suggestion that Bang PD and HYBE (Big Hit Entertainment at that time) was so disappointed in BTS in 2013 that it offered to disband the band is nonsensical.

HYBE not only invested a lot of time and money in training all seven BTS members, Bang PD himself had confidence in them. He revealed that in his May 2016 letter to BTS:

To Jin, Suga, Rap Monster, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook…

When I first met you, all of you were so young. I met you all at different times, but all of you seemed to be scared about something. Like you didn’t know how to look at me, you couldn’t look at me in the eye well at all. I feel that I really pushed you boys a lot. I had a lot of greed and put you under my standard. I gave you a hard time asking why you couldn’t believe yourself and why you weren’t trying to look far into the future. I’m sure all of you remember losing sleep over this because the place I pointed was far and dark. Even so, you always somehow found that path. You always shot up higher and further up than the place that I pointed to.

As I was walking with you, I finally realized it. Your anxiety was another face of desperation. That’s what pushed you to practice until late at night, to go against everything, going over the limits on your own. But now I step back, I can see you getting better and better. Because there’s no reason for me to raise my finger and point towards a place. With your own strengths you are finding your own paths. And you are passing the places that I didn’t dare looking towards.

But still thank you. I won’t say that I’m proud of you just yet, because I am a very greedy person. Let’s hold onto that until the day you become the best group in the world…

On June 12, a year, no, 3 years later. On that day, I’ll look each of you in the eye and tell you personally from my lips…that I’m thankful that you stayed by me and for bringing me here and allowing me to dream.

I write this on May, 2016, a month before your 3rd Anniversary.

Bang Si Hyuk

Fact #5 : This Is Just Music Mundial Fake News

As usual, Music Mundial offered ZERO evidence to back up its claim that Big Hit Entertainment / HYBE once seriously offered to disband BTS so RM can have a solo career.

This appears to be nothing more than yet another example of celebrity fake news posted by Music Mundial. Here are examples of Music Mundial fake news that I looked into:

Did Park Jimin Admit Some BTS Members Are Married?!

Did Park Jimin just admit that several BTS members are already married?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Park Jimin Admits Several BTS Members Are Already Married!

People are sharing a Music Mundial article which claims that Park Jimin just admitted that several of his BTS bandmates are already married!

Here is an except from that article. Please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Park Jimin admits that several BTS members are already married

Through his latest live broadcast, Jimin, member of South Korean Kpop group BTS, gave a big confession to all his fans after revealing some secrets of his fellow members that many ARMYs wouldn’t have even imagined.

Yesterday, Jimin made a live transmission through Weverse platform, where he connected with his fans to thank them for all the great support he has received after the release of his solo EP ‘FACE‘.

Truth : Park Jimin Did Not Admit Some BTS Members Are Married!

This is yet another example of celebrity FAKE NEWS created to generate page views, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : No BTS Members Are Known To Be Married

First, let me just point out that no BTS members are known to be married. Could any of them have gotten secretly married? Quite impossible.

When BTS (Bangtan Sonyeonda / 방탄소년단) was formed in 2010, its members were between 15 and 18 years old. Not only were they too young to get married, they lived together and practiced up to 15 hours a day to prepare for their debut.

Since their debut, they have been under intense media scrutiny. Any marriage would have been discovered, because it would have to be registered with the South Korean government and become a matter of public record, even if the ceremony was held privately.

Fact #2 : No Evidence Of Any BTS Members Being Married

While it is rumoured that RM (Kim Nam-joon) was married in June 2022, it was based on an anonymous claim:

I recently received word from a good friend and hoobae of mine, who is 7-years younger than me, that she is marrying RM. She graduated from a prestigious school and her family is also well off. I believe she met RM at a fan meeting between 2014~2015.

His agency, Big Hit Music, came out to refute it with a short and terse statement:

The rumours are not true.

Rumours have also claimed that other BTS members are married with kids, but none of those claims have ever been substantiated.

Fact #3 : RM Said He Is Scared About Getting Married

On the tvN variety show in December 2022, RM even shared that he is scared about getting married!

First of all, it’s pretty scary for me… I’m not sure about it. To promise eternity to someone, officiate it, and bring your friends together… Before, the thought of, ‘Will that ever happen in my life?’ seemed natural to me. I figured that when the time came, I would get a job, work hard [in life], and get married.

[But now], there is the fact that I chose to live an unusual life… A few years ago, I suddenly began to think for the first time, ‘Maybe I won’t be able to get [married].’ And once that thought began, it got out of hand.

Fact #4 : Music Mundial Offered No Evidence

For its part, Music Mundial offered ZERO evidence to back up its claims that any BTS members are actually married.

The only thing it offered was a Wlive video in which Jimin joked about how many BTS fans referred to themselves as their “wives”. Anyone can see that he was joking.

Did Korean Livestreamer Die Suddenly On Air?!

Did Korean livestreamer BJ케이 die suddenly on a live video stream?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Korean Livestreamer BJ케이 Died Suddenly On Air!

People keep sharing a video of Korean livestreamer BJ케이 spinning and collapsing on live video, with many anti-vaccination activists calling it evidence of yet another vaccine sudden death.

Here is a selection of social media posts accompanying links or articles on the viral video :

#korean dies on liveStream does the #DeathSpin 😳☠️🤔 #NewNormal #Latest

Korean live streamer “dies suddenly” on camera. 💉👀 (November 2022)

Recommended : Died Suddenly : More Lies In Antivax Video Exposed!

 

Claim : Korean Livestreamer BJ케이 Did Not Die Suddenly!

It’s now a tradition for anti-vaccination activists to immediately blame all celebrity deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why, and what we know so far…

Fact #1 : Korean Livestreamer Is Called BJ케이

You may notice that all those posts conspicuously do not mention the name of the Korean influencer. That’s likely intentional, to prevent you from looking him up.

The man in the viral video is called BJ케이, also known as 박중규 / 朴重奎 / Park Jung-kyu – a 33 year-old Korean livestreamer.

The incident was captured during a livestream on afreecatv, which is short for Any FREE broadCAsting – a Korean video streaming service based on peer-to-peer technology. In addition to streaming on afreecatv, BJ케이 also has a YouTube channel.

Fact #2 : Video Does Not Show BJ케이 Dying

In the viral afreecatv video, BJ케이 is seen speaking with three other people, before he inexplicably looks backwards and does a spin before falling backwards onto the table.

His fall causes the livestream camera to fall, and point upwards at the ceiling and chandelier. The video itself does not show BJ케이 dying. You can literally hear him groaning in the background.

Fact #3 : BJ케이 Is Still Alive

Claims that the Korean livestreamer BJ케이 died on that live video is false. BJ케이 is very much still alive, just like many people featured in the Died Suddenly movie.

For one thing, BJ케이 continued posting videos on his YouTube channel – on December 1 and December 3, 2022.

Fact #4 : BJ케이 Had An Epileptic Fit

On December 4, 2022, BJ케이 posted a notice on his afreecatv blog, stating that his doctor told him his collapse was likely due to epilepsy, and he would undergo EEG and MRI tests on Monday, December 5.

He also said that he had a bad flu that day, but tested twice for COVID-19, and both PCR tests were negative.

Here is his post in Korean, machine translated into English:

I didn’t post earlier, so I wrote this post because I thought my viewers will be curious.

I went to the university hospital a few days ago and was treated. The doctor said it seems to be epilepsy.

Tomorrow, on Monday, I will get hospitalized and undergo EEG and MRI tests for a day or two. Since I must be accompanied by someone, I will go with Lauren.

Yesterday both PCR tests were negative! I had a really bad flu, so if it was positive for the coronavirus, I can’t be hospitalized and my tests would be delayed.

Fortunately, it’s just the flu!!! I’ll have to go tomorrow and ask the doctor when the results will come out, but I will definitely return within the next week.

Thank you for waiting. This time, I was nominated for the talk cam room grand prize… Thank you….

I’ll come back when I’m healthy

To be clear – his collapse on live TV had nothing to do with COVID-19 vaccines.

Fact #4 : Unknown If BJ케이 Was Vacciunated

It is currently unknown if BJ케이 was vaccinated against COVID-19, so it would be wrong for anyone to claim that he died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.

For all we know – he may not even be vaccinated! The COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the South Korea, despite what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Before anyone can claim that he was “injured” by the COVID-19 vaccine, they should first confirm that he was vaccinated in the first place.

Fact #5 : Claims Of Celebrities Injured By COVID-19 Vaccine Proven False

This is yet another example of anti-vaccination activists abusing celebrity deaths / injuries to create and propagate FAKE NEWS about the safety and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines.

So far, claims of celebrity deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false at every instance. Here is the latest dozen of other false celebrity claims!

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next celebrity tragedy…
