Sounds like Bell's palsy which one of our students developed when I was teaching Japanese at Colby College in Maine during the 72-73 school year.

  Just a few weeks ago, one of my best friends told me that one night recently she inadvertently left her air conditioning system on very low. The next morning she woke up with paralysis (hopefully temporary but still present after more than a month) on one side of her face. Neither she nor her doctors are Korean.
