A few weeks ago, American rapper Curtis Roach, gone viral for his “Bored in the House” quarantine anthem, got K-Pop idols actively involved in a campaign to give back to the community.
The #boredinthe house challenge not only spreads some serious fun but it also lets participants contribute to a meaningful campaign. In collaboration with TikTok, the challenge aims to bring lunchboxes to food banks in Korea that have been running short on supplies due to the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) pandemic. Every time someone participates in the challenge, the campaign will donate a lunch box to Korea Legacy Committee‘s food banks.
Many celebs have participated in the challenge since Curtis Roach first nominated some of his Korean “homies” and each video has absolutely delighted fans. Most recently, Arden Cho, Golden Child‘s Tag, and Ella Gross participated in the challenge and delivered some seriously fun videos.
While Arden Cho had previously dropped a video of her cute doggo, this time around she shared her own bored in the house experience, combining cleaning, working out, and a few drinks too. Relatable, relatable, relatable!
@arden_choThx for nominating me @llamaber! Join the ##boredinthehouse challenge to donate lunchboxes! 여러분 도시락기부 함께해요￼! I nominate @lanacondo 😘 ##ardencho ##foryou♬ BORED IN THE HOUSE – Curtis Roach
On the other hand, Ella Gross opted for a more laid back approach as she got her meditation on, relaxed with a face mask, and reminded everyone to stay hydrated. Of course, all that relaxation time didn’t stop Ella from pulling a prank, however!
@ilike_umbrellasHey guys! Join this challenge with me! ##boredinthehouse 참여해주시면 틱톡에서 도시락을 기부한데요! 많은 참여 부탁드릴게요! 🙏♬ original sound – ilike_umbrellas
As for Tag? Spending some time in the practice room, he showed how much fun a simple rolling chair can be and bopped along to the beat as he had some fun on the keyboard!

And with many fans and celebs including Ella, Arden, and Tag joining the challenge, the original goal for the challenge of having 10,000 Korean users participate has officially been achieved.
With the goal reached, several celebrities including Yunjee and Dongjun will actually be giving out lunch boxes with the Korean Legacy Committee later this week on Sunday!
Despite already crushing the goal, you don’t have to worry about the challenge disappearing any time soon! As the #boredinthehouse challenge continues, you can nominate anyone you’d like to take on the challenge by heading over to Curtis Roach’s TikTok to tag them!
