TBS eFM: Is "Fan Death" Real?


Listen to my "Fan Death" report for TBS eFM using the player above or subscribe via the iTunes Store HERE.


Recently, I interviewed Koreans and foreigners here in Seoul about whether they believed in the Korean belief known as "fan death" for my recurring segment "Chance Encounters" on TBS eFM.



"Fan death" is a phenomenon I first encountered while teaching English in Seoul three years ago. My elementary students told me I could die if I slept with a fan on, so I would occasionally walk into class and tell them how my air-conditioning was broken and I slept all night with a very large fan in front of my face. While this was an ongoing joke we loved to play on each other, it seemed to me that my students actually thought I could DIE from doing something I had done most nights since I was a child.
