On January 21, an exclusive report revealed that BTS and Big Hit Entertainment donated a total of 100,000,000 KRW (approximately 85,000 USD) to the 4/16 Sewol Families for Truth and A Safer Society. It's reported that each member donated 10,000,000 KRW and the label contributed 30,000,000 KRW.
Big Hit Entertainment confirmed the reports, and stated, "It's something that we processed secretly as we believed that donations are meant to be done quietly. It was the artists' decision and personal matters, so we don't think it's something to leave comments on."
