Hyomyung Shin may look like your average elementary student with his round pudgy face and high pitched voice. He couldn’t be a day over 12 ….
What if I were to tell you that this young man is in fact 26 years old?
He suffers from a rare condition called the ‘Highlander Syndrome’ that causes his body to age at a very slow rate. Shin has not even gone through puberty..
He drinks soju and goes clubbing like any other 26 year old Korean man. Doctors say that other than his stunted aging there seem to be no other negative impacts on his health.
