8 K-pop Celebrities Who Have Done The ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’
The trend has already caught onto many countries, but now it has come to Korea!
Many K-pop celebrities have already participated, with the first participant Tim, who nominated his friends Siwon, Sean and Brian Joo.
The aim the ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’ is to raise awareness for amyotrophic lateral sclerosi (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease), which is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.
Participants are nominated by their friends and families to do the challenge, with those failing to complete it within 24 hours having to donate to the charity (although you could do both).
