Lee Hyori received a lot of praise from Korean netizens for her silent good deeds
On 26 April, the official Instagram account of KARA (Korea Animal Rights Advocates) uploaded some photos with the caption:. “Lee Hyori heard the news of the Hug Challenge and was willing to join the challenge. Because she does not have an Instagram account, she uploaded a hug picture to our account instead”. The photos taken with Hyori’s dogs were posted.
In the photo, Lee Hyori hugged her long-time companion Soonshim and her cats. She also showed her affection in the photo. Lee Hyori’s husband and musician Lee Sang-soon also participated in the Hug Challenge.
Kara said:. “Some time ago, Lee Hyori together with actress Gong Min Jung and singer Yoon Bomi rescued seven siblings of neglected dogs, established a responsible companion culture”.
This campaign is “Do not buy, adopt”. “Please prevent the occurrence of stray dogs by neutralization surgery”. This is an animal love event that recommends “Don’t throw your pet and let them stay with you for life.”
Kara encouraged participation, saying: “If you upload a photo of hugging your pet on Instagram and upload it by adding the hashtag #Lovemeloveyou #LMLY together, you will succeed in participating in the challenge.”
Meanwhile, Lee Hyori played an active part in her project “SSAK3” and ‘Refund Sisters’ last year. She revealed that she was preparing to have a baby through the broadcast. This news had become a hot topic on the internet.
