One of the latest charity fundraising activities currently sweeping across social media is the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. It originated in the US but is quickly catching on in other countries, South Korea (thankfully) being no exception.
Above are MiU and Ari of the Korean dance team Waveya (first featured here) accepting the challenge. Even though the girls don’t meet with official Ice Bucket regulations (Five-gallon bucket at least half full with ice and ice cold water) they definitely show their support with good spirit.
As the challenge is spreading like wildfire, between this writing and the time this is posted, there’s bound to be many more celebs who’ve accepting and posted their videos. What follows are just a few selected Asian female celeb drenchings.
Golfer Michelle Wie, who was recently featured here
Professional pool player, “The Black Widow” Jeanette Lee
Former CNN news anchor (now with KPIX in San Francisco) Veronica De La Cruz
Actress and singer Fala Chen is one of the many Chinese celebs who’ve taken the challenge and one of the few to have at least used ice.
CJ Miles (and company), who’s been featured at Asian Sirens several times, the first time being over eight years ago at the old site
Vlogger Kate Color
Suzanne Whang’s alter ego, Sung Hee Park (misunderstanding the challenge)
Of course, if the lady isn’t nationally-known, her video accepting the challenge isn’t going to be seen by the masses. So, if there’s an Asian lady (such as a newscaster or reporter for your local station) in your area who’s answered this challenge, please share a link to her video in the comments below.
