“My husband is suffering from the side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine. I feel like going through hell every day. I’m taking care of my two 26-month-old twins and my husband is sick” – Lee Tae Geun’s wife said. Lee Tae Geun reportedly received the 3rd dose of vaccine on December 16, 2021 and had symptoms of headache, vomiting and dizziness 3 hours later.

He went to the hospital for blood tests, X-rays and CT scans of his brain, the results showed that he had a sub meningeal hemorrhage. Normally, external trauma will cause subarachnoid hemorrhage, but Lee Tae Geun did not experience trauma, so doctors could not give specific treatment methods. Since then, Lee Tae Geun has lost his hearing, his headaches have become more intense, his body and his fingers have become stiff. The male idol had to take a lot of painkillers to ease his pain.
