A heartwarming story of a girl recovering from being in a vegetative state and coma after hearing a K-Pop song is going viral.
A 10-year-old girl’s life took a sudden turn without warning on January 18, 2014, when she suddenly felt a massive headache and began vomiting. The girl immediately fell into a coma and her condition was so bad that the doctor commented, “It is useless to perform surgery.”
After the family insisted on getting surgery, the girl went through four operations within a month. However, the girl never woke up from the coma and was at risk of being in a vegetative state permanently.
Then, a miracle happened. The girl’s mother recalled, “It was September 6th. I sat beside my child’s bed, got close to her face, and began singing ‘Gangnam Style.’ I wanted her to hear it. Then, all of a sudden, she made a noise and laughed without any emotions on her face.” The mother remarked that PSY’s “Gangnam Style” was a song that always made her daughter laugh before she fell into a coma.
The next day, the girl’s mother sang “Gangnam Style” again, and the girl laughed once more. From then on, the girl’s condition got better and better, to the point where she could sit up, stand, and walk around slowly. While the girl’s road to full recovery is still long, the power of K-Pop has brought much hope to this family.
