Welcome KOST Quartet

Today Hana Planckaert Idoling Blog celebrates its sixth birthday. Hana Planckaert Idoling Blog established in June 30th 2014. The main aim of Hana Planckaert Idoling Blog is for promoting women empowerment through cycling teams and companies. Hana Planckaert Idoling Blog started cycling idoling contents from July 2014, then started company idoling contents from August 2019. Road cycling contents are the most popular contents on Hana Planckaert Idoling Blog. Despite diversification attempts, Hana Planckaert Idoling Blog still rely on road cycling related contents as the main attractions.

Hana would introduce four new female characters which aren’t related with road cycling or Borat Sagdiyev’s world. These characters are based of drugs for a rare genetic disease. Its name is cystic fibrosis aka CF aka 65 roses by children. FYI, cystic fibrosis is the genetic disease which there are defective genes cause damage of the lungs, digestive systems and other organs. Genes of cystic fibrosis sufferers cause mucus thickening on the lungs and digestive system. Sweat gland is also affected by cystic fibrosis which made sweat tasted salty and would turn into crystals.

Cystic fibrosis is the progressive and high maintenance disease. Cystic fibrosis sufferers usually able to do normal activities like attending school and work. Quality of life of cystic fibrosis sufferers nowadays is far better than in previous decades. Improvements of treatments and screening made cystic fibrosis sufferers live longer. In the past, cystic fibrosis sufferers were only lived for several months or years. In late 1930s, they only lived up to six months. Then, in mid 1950s, they only lived up to five years which made them unable to attend elementary/primary school. After that, in early 1960s, they lived up to ten years. Due to development of medical technology, they could live up to late teens in 1980s and then up to 30s in 2000s. Now, as of June 2020, they could live up to 48 years, some could reach their 50s even 60s.

Who are the new characters? They’re Kalydeco, Orkambi, Symdeko and Trikafta, four latest drugs for cystic fibrosis. These drugs are made by Vertex, an American pharmaceutical company which produces drugs for rare diseases. They’re used to target defective genes which present on cystic fibrosis sufferers. They were launched in 2010s decade and available in few countries. They have already approved by FDA in the US and few other countries. They’re available in tablets for all brands and oral granules for Kalydeco and Orkambi.

Welcoming New Flemish Girl

Recently Hana added a Flemish girl who is cheery but strong. The girl is quiet new in Hana Planckaert world. Actually Hana planned to made her but delayed due to vested interests. For five years, Hana already have sooo many Flemings due to being Hana’s origin and base of road cycling. Currently Hana has at least 100 Flemish girls, what a huge amount! Flemings become the second largest “nation” after Frenchs in Hana Planckaert world, following the distribution of pro cyclists worldwide.

The girl who would be added in Hana Planckaert world is Irene Teuns, based of Dylan Teuns. Before she came to Hana Planckaert World, Hana already suggested for her existence. For several months, Hana had been thinking about a girl with Teuns as a last name/surname. Then Hana was thinking about cheerful and stylish girl with short to medium length hair with any color with green eyes. For name, Hana always struggling due to wide variety of names used in Low Countries, particularly Flanders. Flemings can have wide variation of names, from traditional Netherlandic names to modern name(s) ones. Hana thinks that Flemish names are “tricky”, compared to Spanish, Italian, Finnish or Russian.

 

Irene (Teuns) wears magical girl costume with pink and black theme with a bit gold and K-pop inspired T-shirt and short overall.

The costumes are made by Rinmaru Games. The games are Halloween Magical Girl and Korean Style Dress Up.

Team Sky is the best
