BTS's international fans come together to raise money for 'comfort woman' organization House Of Sharing

(Bangtan Boys) BTS
BTS's international fans have come together to sponsor the Korean non-profit House of Sharing on behalf of the elderly 'comfort women' victims of the Japanese occupation.


According to a representative from House of Sharing, the sponsorship began on November 16, and in the past three days, over 100 of BTS's foreign fans have raised 2 million won (roughly $1,800 USD) for the organization. 

So far, those who have made sponsorship donations include fans from the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Spain, Poland, Austria, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Australia, Uruguay, and Costa Rica.

"This project is not simply just a sponsorship project," the House of Sharing added. "It also serves the purpose of remembering the strife of comfort women and the history of the Japanese occupation."

I also just recently learnt about comfort woman. I was traumatised for a few days and felt ashame on how ignorant I was on this issue. It is sad that not many of these comfort women are still alive, most of them are in their 90s. We should spread their words to the world....


Please listen to their stories...caution: not for weak hearts

ARMYs really are the best! I am proud of the fact that the issue with BTS shined light upon the issue of Jap imperialism and comfort women which many around the world don't know of.

This is our image in the minds of Korean gp and media. Lets make BTS proud.

I came to know about it recently and I am so glad I did . I never heard about it before and I cried for an hour reading their stories, what happened to those women is just awful and it’s against Humanity. We can’t change the past but we can make sure it never happens again. I hope more and more people will hear about it and suppor those victims.

There's a K-movie about comfort women: "I can speak". That's how I fisrt came to know about them and their story. I highly recommand it if you didn't watch it. It is so touching, emotional and brillant! Here is the trailer:

I think it's a good thing to do BUT I feel it just to deviate from their current scandal.

This honestly sounds like BTS is bitter from not being able to perform in Japan..

If you want to raise awareness and support all comfort women, please also support Lai Dai Han.. Vietnamese comfort women who were raped and massacred by South Korean troops during the Vietnam War. As of today, the South Korean government has not officially apologized for those atrocities during the Vietnam War. Lai Dai Han is all too real and should not be ignored..

Thank you for all of your support !!!

International community should put economic sanctions on Japan.

Put heavy tariff on Jap products.

Better still, Korea should invade Japan

Giving money to a cause that's already received hundreds of millions, a country whose government takes the funds and uses them as they will.

This is a Radical Power Grab Attempt by BIG HIT ENTERTAINMENT


Following the recent controversies, bts which is generally more favored in the west has started to lose its popularity

Therefore they are attempting to make news in the asian markets by discussing this issue to counteract Twice's recent controversy in Japan

smart moves

hopefully this will push jyp to promote twice more in the west

Lmao the biggest reach in the universe. Where did they start losing popularity?? In japan where they broke previous sales record and already 2X platinum? In Brazil where they became the first Korean artist to be Platinum? In the UK or Aus where they broke their previous Album record and have stayed in the charts longer? In the US where they just broke highest box office debut for documentary movie beating one direction? Hahaha BTS are breaking records as we speak. See I just breathed and they broke another record which will be reported on later.


They have nothing to worry about over some dumb right wing nazi equalizers that are throwing a tantrum over a shirt and acting like victims of war instead of the aggressors. Bighit visited both bomb victims in both countries and they have sincerely accepted the apology. Move on cus BTS sure is and they are thriving!! Cheers 🥂 my friend to a continued Bangtan Global takeover!!
