“Amongst the disadvantaged children that are victims of the various societal problems, I hope that these funds will be well-delivered to those that are facing financial difficulties due to the coronavirus," he said.

The donation worth 100 million in Korean Won is equivalent to around US$84,407 which is not a small amount. The BTS member’s wish is for these to be used for those in dire need especially the kids.

J-Hope is not new to helping others

Due to his generosity, it was said that J-Hope is now part of the foundation’s Green Noble Club. This is a group of high-level donors and there are 146 members in the club. The BTS idol singer became a member in 2018.
