gladly accepted the nominee, but instead of getting wet and accept completely the ice bucket challenge as many of his colleagues of the entertainment industry, he decided to concentrate on donating money to the Seungil Hope Foundation
His official statement quotes as follows:
This is T.O.P, or CHOI SEUNG HYUN.
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.
What do you think about T.O.P's point of view?
