K-Pop performer Minwoo has sudden cardiac arrest, Korean search volumes skyrocket

At risk of appearing especially morbid, while exploring Tumblr, Instagram and Twitter posts tonight with the hashtag #cardiacarrest, I learned that a popular Korean celebrity has died of a sudden cardiac arrest. I do not want to take away from the significance and tragedy of their death in any way, but after an event like this, public appetite for cardiac arrest and resuscitation related information piques.

Now is the time for the Asian Resuscitation Council to reach out to their populace and empower people to help prevent and treat these tragedies when they occur. The popularity of K-Pop could be utilized to teach fans how to respond to cardiac arrest.
