Since the offer of “Having dinner with the Wonder Girls” appeared on the Auction website on November 29th, the number of bids that came in over the days was staggering. When the auction finally closed at 11:30am on December 3rd, the highest bidder actually bidded 5.5m won.

Beside the highest bidder who bidded 5.5m won, there were 4 other bidders who were also given the chance to have a dinner date with the Wonder Girls. They respectively bidded, 4m, 352.5m, 350.5m (2 users) respectively.

During the bidding, there were actually bids that went as high as 20m won but it was later found to be a fraud and was adjusted by the Auction administrators after investigation. These lucky five bidders would be having a sweet dinner date with the Wonder Girls at 6pm on December 9th at a restaurant in Seoul.

This event was the second organised by MBC and Korea Red Cross for famous people in their fields to either donate their time or personal collectibles for a good cause. Money gathered would be donated to the Korean Red Cross and used especially to help orphans who have lost their parents and are living with their grandparents.
