During the mid-airing press conference for SBS's 'Incarnation of Jealousy,' actor Jo Jung Suk revealed that the scene in which he gets a breast examination to check for cancer was very, very real.

He said, "I actually did that.  It hurt so much.  It hurt so much that you could consider my expressions and the like to not be acting [but genuine reactions].  Should I say that I had felt it?  I think I was able to understand a little bit those feelings through the filming."


Not a lot of men could say the same thing.  It definitely looks painful... See for yourself in the clip below!

My god

I've heard they can be very painful. Men can also get breast cancer but it's more rare in men. I have to have a mammogram sometime in the next year or so since I'm at a very high risk due to several family members presenting with breast cancer. I'm not looking forward to having my breast smashed for the imaging.

I wish you well!

Due to a family history of breast cancer I've had the displeasure of going through the tests. Mammograms are painful. Period. But I rather due that than go through a biopsy again.  The most interesting one was the MRI, which was not painful (except for the IV contrast) but they had me on my tummy with my breasts hanging.  Hard to describe.

myfirstwasmblaq Wednesday, September 21, 2016

**Do that...

pink_oracle myfirstwasmblaq Wednesday, September 21, 2016

Is it true the MRI basically makes the mammogram redundant?

myfirstwasmblaq pink_oracle Wednesday, September 21, 2016

Yes, but health plans won't pay for them first unless something suspicious shows up in a mammogram/sonogram. I had a mammogram and sonogram, then a biopsy, and the same day an MRI. Since it was a false alarm all I do know is the mammogram/sonogram combo.

Variable pink_oracle Wednesday, September 21, 2016

MRIs are very expensive, and due to the limitations related to possible metal in the body and such, mammograms are an option I think all women can use.

Jadewashere64 myfirstwasmblaq Thursday, September 22, 2016

I wish you well

pink_oracle myfirstwasmblaq Thursday, September 22, 2016

Kinda blows.

myfirstwasmblaq Jadewashere64 Friday, September 23, 2016

Thanks

myfirstwasmblaq pink_oracle Friday, September 23, 2016

Yep, but that's life.

ilutgg Wednesday, September 21, 2016

well, i guess its nice to know what i'll go through when i hit 50 lol

2fat ilutgg Wednesday, September 21, 2016

You need breast exams long before you're 50. Try 40.

ilutgg 2fat Wednesday, September 21, 2016

Thanks for the awful news Lol

taleebe9 ilutgg Wednesday, September 21, 2016

Lets just say, if your doctors feels any kind of lump.. you Might need to get it tested. Unless they ask u if ur on your period then you probably dont need to. My doctor almost sent me to check it at age 20.

2fat taleebe9 Wednesday, September 21, 2016

You certainly need to at least have a pap test every other year once you turn 18. My sister had to have that freeze treatment thing when she was only 19, pre-cancerous cells.

pink_oracle Wednesday, September 21, 2016

It's good that he wanted to understand his character and have real empathy but, I hope him saying how painful it was won't scare women away when they are due their screening.

2fat pink_oracle Wednesday, September 21, 2016

Women will have to endure a lot of painful things long before they turn 40.

pink_oracle 2fat Wednesday, September 21, 2016

There are enough women too afraid to go for pap-smears, it won't help to have them also terrified of mammograms.

2fat pink_oracle Wednesday, September 21, 2016

Mammograms are way more annoying than pap smears. It's all annoying and unpleasant but something that shouldn't be overlooked. Early detection saves lives and suffering. The alternative if you do get cancer is much worse.

Variable pink_oracle Wednesday, September 21, 2016

I definitely don't think women need this man telling them a regular part of their health checkups is painful. The fact that pap smears suck and mammograms hurt is basically common knowledge to women.

2fat Variable Wednesday, September 21, 2016

Come on. It's Kdrama and they are ham handed at handling anything "controversial" but occasionally they try. Let's face it a lot of them still believe in "traditional medicine" which is can be helpful at times and deadly at others.

pink_oracle 2fat Thursday, September 22, 2016

Why are you rambling on with the education? I know the education, my point is this could deter women. I think you often loose the point your'e trying to make because you get so caught up in disagreeing with people?

micahxo_lu pink_oracle Thursday, September 22, 2016

2fat addressed their comment to Variable, not you. Just clearing up any misunderstandings.

Variable 2fat Thursday, September 22, 2016

I don't really know what this reply has to do with my comment?

pink_oracle micahxo_lu Thursday, September 22, 2016

They replied to me before you did.

2fat pink_oracle Thursday, September 22, 2016

Seriously by the time you need to start having mammograms you won't care anymore about a little discomfort. Most of the time they aren't recommended until 40 unless you have a history. By the time you're 40 a mushed boob is nothing especially if you've had children.

pink_oracle 2fat Friday, September 23, 2016

You talk about 40 as though it's 80. Truth is the majority of women feel a knot in their stomach the size of a watermelon when they get that first invitation through the door. I've seen the face drop, it's cold fear.

1011 Wednesday, September 21, 2016

OMG that was reaaaal? I didn't know they check for breast cancer that way, I can feel the pain just watching.

Variable 1011 Wednesday, September 21, 2016

And imagine what it feels like when there's a sizeable amount of breast tissue in there like women have...
