About Park SungEdit
In the episode The Foresight Saga, Park Sung, a farm boy whose family lives near the camp, repays the surgeons for looking after his grandmother by offering the 4077th fresh vegatables, a kind gesture, of which was noticed in the improved quality of the food in the mess tent.
Park Sung, who has many of the same traits as Radar, in that he is an animal lovere and a real whiz at farming (with help from a manual given to him by a G.I. friend), but he desperately needs new glasses, as his present ones are hard to use for the simple tasks as reading; he's helped by Hawkeye, who wonders if a Dr. Myron "Bud" Herzog (played by Philip Sterling), who visits the camp on a call for Colonel Potter. can make Park Sung new glasses as long as he was at the camp.
When Dr. Herzog arrives, he arranges for new pairs of glasses for both Potter and Park Sung. But then another problem arises, Park Sung is wounded by artillery staying behind to defend his land, even after his family have left to go further south from Wijambu. Luckily, his wounds are minor, but now he has no family, no "home" to go home to. Hawkeye and B.J. put him up in the Swamp until he decides what to do next.
That night, the surgeons, Magaret, Potter, and Klinger all start reminiscing about Radar, who needs help on his family farm in Ottumwa, IA. They decide to give him a call. Col. Potter ends up speaking to Radar's mother, who admits that things, in fact, are not going all that well on the farm: crops are bad, and they don't have enough money to hire help, leaving Radar to do all the work himself, followed by a night job at the county store.
They all try to decide what they can do to help Radar, and then Park Sung walks in, asking about his pet rabbit, who appears sick. One by one, they all get the idea to send Park Sung to Iowa to go live with the O'Reillys. Park Sung loves the idea, and soon after they throw him a goodbye party, complete with gifts. One of the gifts is a Korean-English dictionary, and Park Sung uses it to say all this is..."terrific.
