LOONA’s Hyunjin Just Nominated Someone Very Surprising For The Ice Bucket Challenge

She just nominated a major entertainment CEO!

The Ice Bucket Challenge has recently re-sparked, especially among Korean celebs, who are bringing awareness to ALS as well as supporting South Korea’s first ALS hospital. LOONA‘s Hyunjin was one of the most recent idols who took on the challenge. But it’s not her fearless acceptance nor her icy shower that has caught netizens attention!

She was nominated by fellow MIXNINE contestant Eyedi.


Hyunjin made an incredibly daring move with her nominations. Her nominations included choreography director Kim Hwa Young, Digipedi director Seong Won Mo, and perhaps best of all, YG Entertainment founder Yang Hyun Suk!

Hello, I’m Hyunjin of LOONA. Following Eyedi, I’ve decided to participate in the Ice Bucket Challenge. I give my support to the construction of South Korea’s first ALS hospital for patients suffering from Lou Gehrig’s Disease. I hope they will get better treatment in a better environment and facilities.Your love and support are needed for them. Of course I will keep supporting. I’m going to name 3 people to continue this challenge. They are YG founder Yang Hyun Suk, Digipedi director Seong Won Mo, and Choreography director Kim Hwa Young.— Hyunjin⠀⠀⠀
