SNSD′s Sunny Passes Along Hugs to Epik HIgh′s Mithra Jin, SHINee′s Jonghyun and Super Junior′s Choi Siwon
After receiving Epik High Tablo′s warm embrace, Girls′ Generation′s Sunny decided to pass on the warmth and kindness by participating in the Hug Challenge.
On December 18, Sunny updated her Instagram, writing, "The person who receives a hug will doante 10,000 won (20 coal briquettes) to the Coal Briquette Bank and hug three others within 24 hours to share that warmth. As I′ve received a hug from Epik High′s Tablo oppa, I hugged Epik HIgh′s Mithra Jin, SHINee′s Jonghyun and Super Junior′s Siwon oppa."
She continued, "Did you know... more than when receiving, a person feels more warmth when giving? Let′s heat up Korea! I await the participation of many people. #HugChallenge #RaisingOneDegreeOfWarmthInSouthKorea."
Sean started up the Hug Challenge on December 15, stating that 150,000 families, especially the elderly, in Korea still use coal briquettes as a source for heat in their homes. In 2014, coal briquette donations have dwindled due to the slow economy. The Hug Challenge was created with efforts to spread the warmth, figuratively and physically.
