Hello again! When you have fever, do you prefer to take medicines or do you use different methods?

Hi Ian,


Yes, 'Shopping King Louie' was a popular(and funny) drama series! Koreans use 파스 for muscle pain, but it has a strong scent and some people do not like the smell. :flushed:


Cheers,

I recently watched a funny Korean TV drama called 'Shopping King Louie' where the main character was running through Seoul with loads of 파스 or pain-relieving patches all over his body. ?

Hi Nisha,


Yes, you are right.

___주세요 is what you'd say to get the medicines. :thumbsup:

안녕하세요 !


When I have fever, I usually prefer medicines. In any case, it's the quickest way :smile:


I have a question: When you go to a pharmacy in Korea, and if you want one of the medicines mentioned in the lesson, you can say 타이레놀 주세요 or 파스 주세요 right?


감사합니다 !
