[TRANSLATION] Suho - 140821 Seungil Hope Foundation's facebook update: "Member of idol group EXO, Suho's 'Ice Bucket Challeng'"
"Numerous unknown numbers called yesterday…
Most of the calls were from reporters wondering what the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge was.
Seeing that they were interested in our nation’s Lou Gehrig patients… and it finally hit me how much of a trend the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has become.
I received another call and heard the voice of a young man.
He said he was a member of EXO by the name of Suho..
Even though it is a group that the younger generation likes like crazy, and that I would be expected not to know because of my age, I knew perfectly well who they were. Not every single members’ name, but..
The reason was because this year, EXO’s fanclub donated to our foundation for each of the members’ birthdays.
They are a nice fandom to a nice group, so I even wrote on Kakao Story…
They are fans who made the stars they like shine even brighter.
The member Suho said that he promised to donate two hundred dollars, thay he had completed the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and was calling to keep that promise.
Promise… That is a very important thing.
It was far more trustworthy than just using the word donation as an expression.
These are the words Suho uploaded on instagram:
Hello, it’s EXO’s leader Suho. Since I don’t have my personal SNS account, I’m posting it on our member Sehun’s Instagram.
First of all, I am glad that I learned about a great campaign like the ice bucket challenge, thanks to my close friends, Kwanghee and Eddy Kim, and it is an honor to be able to tale part in it. It would be great if even one more person is able to learn about the Lou Gehrig’s disease from my ice bucket challenge. Because I was nominated by two people, I will pour ice water on myself twice and donate 200 dollars. I nominate EXO Sehun, Boa sunbaenim, and actor Yohan Byun for the next round. Thank you.”
