Yang Hyun Suk has taken part in the 2018 Ice Bucket challenge!
Sean launched the challenge again in Korea last month in order to support the construction of Korea’s first hospital for ALS patients by the Seungil Hope Foundation.
On June 30, Sean revealed Yang Hyun Suk’s donation to the cause by sharing a text conversation he had with the YG Entertainment founder.
Yang Hyun Suk explained that he had been asked to participate in the challenge by LOONA’s HyunJin, but wished to donate 50 million won instead (approximately $44,900). Sean reassured him just a donation is fine, saying that Yang Hyun Suk’s donation is the largest so far.
In response, Yang Hyun Suk expressed, “I sincerely hope that this can help Lou Gehrig patients a little.”
