SM Entertainment manager literally could have killed member of Super Junior

Filed under: legal issues, music — extrakorea @ 5:40 am

Hang Geng, who used to be a member of the boy band Super Junior (until he took legal action to try to leave their company, SM Entertainment), talked about the actions of a manager at SM Ent.

“I went to a Korean awards ceremony with other members of [Super Junior]. I was seriously ill that day. Both Choi Si-won and I were ill that day. I had only two hours before having to walk the red carpet to the ceremony. I went to the hospital with Si-won. I went to the emergency room and the doctor asked me to have an intravenous drip. That day a manager at SM Entertainment followed us to the hospital. He shouted four times, ‘We don’t have time! Be quick!!’ And he adjusted the intravenous drip to increase its speed to the maximum. I really felt dazzled, but he still shouted, ‘Be quick! We don’t have time!!’ Before half of the liquid in the bottle had gone into my vein, the manager pulled out the needle and asked me to leave the hospital and go to the awards ceremony.”

Do you know what could happen if you monkey with the IV drip like that?

Fluid overload

This occurs when fluids are given at a higher rate or in a larger volume than the system can absorb or excrete. Possible consequences include hypertension, heart failure, and pulmonary edema.

This idiot could have literally killed Han Geng with his stupidity and ignorance. It is not, however, the first time that managers have displayed such inexcusable behavior. CN Blue’s manager whacked in the head a female fan whose only “offense” was getting too close to the band, and shortly thereafter a manager with SHINee (another SM Entertainment boy band) did the same. (Go to the links to see still photos and videos of these punks caught in the act.)
