"Fan death is a South Korean urban legend which states that an electric fan, if left running overnight in a closed room, can cause the death (by suffocation, poisoning, or hypothermia) of those inside"

Heh I always sleep with my fan on and door closed.

But Im Korean and I live with other Koreans. One of my housemates told me this once and i cracked up. He was told by his mom though; it's some old Korean thing, I dont know where it originates. But yah older Koreans either believe this or tell their children this for some odd reason.

Crosses fingers before sleeps so he doesnt die now.

This is the dumbest thing I have ever heard since EVER. Fans do nothing but movie air, they don't even cool the air. The sensation you feel as cool air is the sweat on your skin evaporating as the air passes by it.

Another thing is I have had a fan in my room going non-stop for two years now, and this is no joke. I HATE stale air, and makes it hard for me to breathe. So this myth is just too busted for words.

It clearly says it's an urban legend.
Plus I've kept my fans on over night all the time. And I believe I'm still alive.

If this urban legend is true, then I should have died a billion times already. Silly Koreans and their dog eating habits.
