I am thrilled to join in on the Ice Bucket Challenge, a campaign that raises awareness of and fundraises for ALS, also known as the Lou Gehrig's disease. I was nominated by musician BoA and actor Cho Seung Woo, and I deeply thank them for letting me be part of this meaningful campaign.However, instead of taking part in the Ice Bucket Shower, I would like to make a donation to the Seungil Hope Foundation that has been carrying out philanthropic deeds for patients suffering from the disease. I hope my involvement in the campaign can raise awareness of the patients who are suffering from the disease, and that it can provide hope to the patients."

I hope ALS patients and their families have more strength. I'll donate to where the Cube family has been donating to in hopes I can be a small help. Fighting!"
