Korean Basketball League Stops All-Star Game for Epic Mannequin Challenge

The hype over the “Mannequin Challenge” has already waned for many, but certainly not for South Koreans.

After K-Pop stars, the next to hop on the trend are no less than players from the Korean Basketball League.

The surprising moment happened during Sunday’s All-Star game. In the second quarter, just when a Junior squad player tried to shoot, the horn sounded and everyone froze on the court.

The bench, coaches and even the shot clock were temporarily suspended, too.

After few seconds, the horn sounded again and everyone went back to business.

The Korean Basketball League may be among the last to join the bandwagon, but they’re certainly not the least!
