So, here was the original plan…

We had busted our butts to get Music Monday finished an entire day early. It involved a total lack of sleep and a copious amount of coffee, but we were doing it so that we could have a glorious WANK with our friends in Ansan (you might remember them from our Wonder Girls “Be My Baby” review. Since traveling to Ansan would take up a little bit of our time and we’d have to bring Spudgy, we thought we’d need an extra day to get home, edit, and have the WANK up for Wednesday. After finishing Music Monday a day early, we arrived in Ansan and decided to go out for dinner in celebration! YAAAAAAAYYYYY!!!

So, after some yummy Dak Galbi and bottles of soju, we went over to D-Day (in downtown Ansan), which is one of the coolest…bars? Clubs? I don’t know what it would be considered, but it’s a really cool place. Basically, you sit down with your friends at your own personal table in this huge area. You eat and drink and talk, kind of like a restaurant, just one that is very poorly lit. Anyhow, what makes this place special is that every 45 minutes or so, the music changes to danceable music, and it becomes a super amazing dance party time, and everyone gets up and dances in the aisles! There is no designated dance floor! We had an awesome time hopping around like awkward foreigners (seriously, we were like the only 4 foreigners there in a room that had close to 200 people) and making new Korean friends. When we requested T-ara’s “Roly Poly” Simon and I were cheered on with our T-ara dance skills. Ah yes dancing, the international language.

What is really interesting about Korean clubs, is that sometimes everyone will dance freestyle, but then once in a while a WHOLE TON of people get up and do an organized line dance…which totally blew our minds since we had no idea what was going on.

Martina Busted her Ankle

Martina Busted her Ankle

So how did Martina end up on crutches? Although she would love to say it was from doing something heroic or extreme, Martina was simply jumping around while dancing to a super peppy song and she landed on someone’s foot as they were squeezing behind her, and her ankle just rolled out and she hit the ground hard. However, she got right back up and got back to dancing. Probably because of the adrenaline (*cough* partially because of the soju) she didn’t feel how badly she had damaged her foot. Next morning, though, was a different story. With no more music, no more fun, no more distractions, cold, hard pain kicked in, and she knew she had done something nasty to her foot. Ooooh ankle, you so nasty!

We brought her to the hospital in Ansan to get it checked. She was extremely happy she had packed her matching purple Taeyang socks because normally Martina just wears any two socks she finds. The X-rays don’t show a clear fracture, but they said they couldn’t be sure without an MRI. So they put this splint/half cast on Martina and told her to keep it elevated and rested. Since we don’t have health insurance here in Korea, the whole process of us going in, getting X-rays, doctor check ups, and a splint, all cost 340,000 won. Not too bad, I think. Also, having a brief Korean conversation with the super awesome nurse that was helping her, Martina was delighted to be called 누나 noona for the first time. She was like, seriously excited and began singing SHINee…NOOOOONA YOU’RE MMMVVVVVVPPPP!!! She is far too chipper for an injured person…love you snuggle berry!

Bad news is we can’t really go out adventuring for our WANKs now, because Martina is barely mobile. The best we can do is to have mini-WANKs, in which we go to a restaurant in the area and show you some of the food. We’re going to call it the Food Adventure Program aka F.A.P. We initially thought of calling it the Fun and Productive Food Adventure Program For Awesome People, but that would be too long of a name. So we’re keeping it shorter. Also, Martina might be sitting down for Kpop Music Mondays, which sucks, because she should be jumping around, as it looks like Big Bang’s “Blue” is going to win. Ah well! At least it’s not an icy snowy crutch-deathtrap outside, and in a couple weeks Martina will have buff upper arms! YES!

  12. Well..at least you we’re already partying ^.^
    I sprained my ankle last year carnival, right before I was supposed to meet my friends and yeah..hurt like hell. Didn’t stop me from walking around for the next few hours. Oh the regret the next day LOL

    Get well soon!!

  13. Amber Lee

    OH NOES! Martiiiinaaaa!!!!!!! Poor you! :( But I feel you pain xD
     I broke my ankle too, a couple weeks ago :P
    WE CAN BE SCREWED UP ANKLE BUDDIES! :D

    Anyway, I fractured my right fibula two weeks ago and it hurt so much! Actually, it didn’t really hurt that much and I was smiling like a lunatic in my wheelchair at first (Btw I broke it playing frisbees in PE. I know, I’m lame. But if you ask anyone else, I got stampeded by a savage herd of unicorn :D). Then it got swollen to the size of a tangerine and it HURT!

    And I had fifth period PE too, so all the hospitals were at lunch break so I sat in the car for a couple hours before I could hop into one but all they did was make me wait, then slap an ace bandage around my enormous ankle and send me to another one to get x-rays. Meh for cheap insurance. I only had to pay $20 though so I guess I can’t complain.

    Oh, and it’s totally true about the buff arms thing! o_O Now I have really achy bruised muscly arms and mismatched legs. xD

    GOOD LUCK! And don’t go around too much for us, if you’ll heal faster, we don’t really mind :)

  14. awesome pedicure Simon! LOL ^_^ awww Martina get well soon! lots of rest, ice, warm compress (alternate) and elevation. haha, sorry i’m a nurse, too. i busted my knee back in august, had an immobilizer on for a month! so i can totally feel with you, sweetie… get back to your old jumpy self soon!

    You guys work soo hard to please the fans and that makes me happy! Keep up the good work and Martina get your rest ^^

  21. Get TOP’s beautiful butt chair for Music Mondays. xPPPP

  22. martina probably had an ankle sprain instead of a fracture (very hard to break anything in that area)…

    the degree of the sprain is really unknown, she could have had a small tear in the ligament or a big one (MRI is needed to know this)… but generally speaking you’re suppose to ice it (screw the elevation and all that junk, just ice it lol), it’ll get swollen and all that junk, and depending on how long it was swollen THEN you go to the doctor (for the most part 1-2 days if it’s still like that then you go, normally they die down in 1-2 days).

    From personal experience, I used to play badminton in high school, I sprained my ankle quite a bit, but I’m a good healer, I don’t get swollen ever (makes it hard to tell how bad it is, but this is a very rare case, i don’t even get swollen when they took my wisdom teeth out), but for the most part I couldn’t walk for 1-2 days after (which is normal)… it’s also normal to be walking around right after because you’re still warm (I was still doing squat right after one of the time), if she had a fracture she wouldn’t be able to put any pressure on it right after.

    Unfortunately, a fracture might take a shorter time to heal than an severe ankle sprain (ligaments don’t get enough blood supply to heal properly like the other stuff). Martina should be able to walk gingerly in about 2-3 days and walk normally in about 1 week, but the foot will feel abnormal on big impact for 6 months to a year.

    this is not medical advice, just from personal experience, I sprained my ankle ALOT lol.

  23. Aww, well feel better soon! I think you’re handling it really well. ^_^ I’m a huge baby when it comes to pain so it’s fun to see you fussing over painted toenails and such. And also, you guys are probably the cutest and sweetest couple of all time ever. Loved the ending. <3

  24. get better soon martina! :)

  25. I just got over a broken ankle, crutches for four months. it was terrible! 
    i know what you mean about the crutch pain though, people say wrapping your crutches helps, i didnt do it but my arms did get a lot stronger so it will get easier. 
    good luck!

  26. Don’t worry about how you got injured; I twisted my ankle while stepping off a hugh pavement while traveling in TUNISIA haha and still having 7 days to go walking on my injury and putting ice on it every night. I was also having the tourista and could barely eat anything.

    You know, sometimes, it just happens! XD Don’t be embrrassed by it :P

  27. Martina  GET BETTER SOON EH!!!

  28. So sorry to see Martina hurt her ankle!! Take care and get well real soon!!
    Several years ago I had an experience of drinking, singing and dancing in Karaoke Box, fell down and hurt my right arm…and the next morning I could not move my right arm at all!!btw D-day sounds like a nice place to hang out with friends!! is it possible to put on more clip on that night?? and how much $ per head?A friend of mine asked me to be a DJ in someone’s  birthday party later that I never did that before! and I am planning to play lots of K-Pop dance tunes on that party if possible!

  29. Whoa, Martina, get well soon! ^^
    I think I have studied ankle fractures this year T_T But I’m not a physiotherapist… yet.

  30. rofl buff arms epic. Said this on youtube but imma say it again. Get well soon Martina! Simon and Spudgy has your back! :D 

  31. awww martina :( get better soon! PITY PARTY TIME!! No dancing allowed though ;)

  32. Martina ;33
    I also know your pain. I broke my leg in two places. Well actually i underwent surgery 7 days ago, and it hurts like there’s no tomorrow. I have crutches but forearm ones. They are really comfortable.
    Hwaiting ! :D

  33. Ohh, I’m so sorry that Martina is injured! Cheer up and take care of yourself, don’t worry about WANKs, there is no rush^^ And I’m really looking forward to FAP right now, sounds like an awsome idea (minus the fact that you get to eat and we only get to look at you and feel the cravings).

  34. Potugatuga

    Think happy thoughts Martina! BIGBANG’s new songs are coming out and that should keep you occupied till you feel better.

  35. I have two suggestions for chairs I think you’ll love Martina: one T.O.P.’s chair he sits in in the “Turn It Up Loud” MV and two the butt chair he sits in in the “Knockout” MV. You know the ones. I hope it’s a tiny fracture and it heals quickly!
