The renowned “Ice Bucket Challenge” is currently being revived in South Korea to celebrate the construction of the first hospital for patients with ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease in the country. To contribute to the cause and aid the construction, Jinusean’s Sean – the CEO of the nonprofit organization “승일희망재단” (Seungil Huimang Jaedan or Seungil Hope Foundation), took on the ice bucket challenge first and nominated Park BoGum, IU, and former footballer Cho WonHee to carry it on.
For those who might not know, the Ice Bucket Challenge is a viral campaign that first emerged in 2014, where people filmed themselves getting drenched with ice water to raise awareness and funds for ALS charities. Participants would then nominate others to partake in the challenge within 24 hours, promoting both donations and the dissemination of information about the disease.
First, Park BoGum participated in the challenge, dunking a bucket of ice on himself and further nominating Kwak DongYeon, Oh My Girl’s Mimi, and THE BOYZ’s Q to take on the challenge.
Next, IU took on the challenge, adorably getting nervous right before the ice bucket was turned over her. She nominated Heo JoonSeok, Lee JooYoung, and Lee DoHyun for the challenge.
IU even playfully commented on Park BoGum’s post, claiming that doing the challenge with a cap on should be invalid. We’re looking forward to seeing their on-screen chemistry in “You Have Done Well” even more now!
