coL.MVP sC’s Pneumothorax Relapse

BY Andrew Miesner / November 28, 2011

Recently the StarCraft II community found out that one of the star Terran players on coL.MVP, Kim Seung-Chul better known as sC, has been having some medical issues. To be specific he has been suffering from Pneumothorax for the past few months which has lead him to suffer from multiple collapsed lungs. Avid fans of the GSL can tell you that he’s been absent the past few seasons due to this medical problem.

For those of you who don’t know, Pneumothorax “is a collection of air or gas in the pleural cavity of the chest between the lung and the chest wall.” “The symptoms of a pneumothorax are determined by the size of the air leak and the speed by which it occurs; they may include chest pain in most cases and shortness of breath in many.”

We at compLexity and MVP thought that this problem had been taken care of and were confident in sC’s health so much so that we sent him to MLG Providence without a second thought. Apparently sC’s Pneumothorax has relapsed. In a series of Tweets, sC stated:


Relapsed again… I’m going crazy
I couldn’t feel it but they say it relapsed a while ago
Ah… Why is it always me…
Ah I have to just lie around again ..


It would mean the world to sC to know that his foreign fans are concerned about him. Thanks to sexymonkeys’ post on Reddit, we have a small list of Korean phrases that you can send to sC via Twitter so he knows you’re thinking about him.

  • 힘내세요 – Stay strong
  • 화이팅 – Fighting
  • 얼른 회복하세요 – Get better soon
  • 빨리 나아요 – Get better soon (version 2)
  • 사랑해요 – I love you
  • 응원할깨요 – I’ll support you
  • 너무 잘생겼어요 – You are so handsome

Everyone at compLexity is wishing you the best sC! Get well soon!
