The 'Ice Bucket Challenge' is really becoming a huge trend worldwide as people spread awareness of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease) by doing the 'Ice Bucket Challenge'!  Again, people will be challenged by friends, family, or others to either dump buckets of ice cold water onto their heads or donate to charity (although some do both).  In turn, this will help bring awareness to the problem and rake in more donations from those who learn about it through this publicity.


This time, BESTie's Dahye, Haeryung, and Hyeyeon stepped up to the plate, cutely challenging Yoo Jae Suk, Choo Sung Hoon, and Duble Sidekick before getting drenched in ice cold water.  Now those three named will have to take on the challenge, as well, within 24 hours or pay 100,000 KRW (~ $100 USD) to the ALS association, or so the girls say.  They also put a website link where people could learn more about the disease.

Eric Nam challenged f(x)'s Amber, BTOB's Peniel, U-KISS's Kevin, Royal Pirates' James, Jenn Im, Ailee...and all of his fans watching the video!  It appears he did the challenge but his phone battery died so he had to record it again. He poured water on himself, taking it like a champ, and asked everybody to kindly donate to the association, as well.


Do you accept his challenge?

because mostly everyone doesn't know yet about Lou Gehrig's disease or probably has only little bit knowledge about the disease, then this following video below, maybe it would help to inspire them and more people to donate and increase self awareness about ; the disease.

in 2010. Girls' Generation Soo Young shared a story of former korean basket ball couch that was suffering Lou Gehrig's disease and campaigned and asked some support and attention, to help those who suffering from Lou Gehrig's disease. ^ ^




It's so sad that mostly people/fans' comments, see "Ice bucket challenge" as just "a celebration" but "slightly" forget the real meaning of that campaign.
