On the April 19 airing of MBC's 'I Live Alone,' Henry donated his violin for a charity auction.
He explained the violin is extra special to him, and said, "It's the violin I performed with around the world. It went with me on broadcasts, and even to the South Pole." Henry emphasized its importance, stating, "It's my first love. My first love is leaving me today."
The bidding for the violin opened at 50,000 KRW (44 USD). Then the price quickly escalated to over 5 million KRW (4,400 USD) with increasing bids.
Henry himself expressed great shock at the high bids, and said, "Wait, wait. Please think before you bid. This is your money."
Ultimately, the violin sold for 10 million KRW (8,800 USD).
