BTS's Suga revealed to have donated 100 million KRW to a hospital in Daegu on his birthday

AKP STAFF

It has been revealed that BTS's Suga had made a generous donation on his birthday this year.

On June 27 KST, media outlets reported that a nameplate that reads 'Suga (Min Yoongi)' has been hung on the wall of Keimyung University's Dongsan Medical Center located in Daegu. The nameplate was for BTS's Suga, who has donated 100 million KRW (~88,700 USD) to the hospital in order to aid underage patients battling cancer. 

The hospital confirmed that Suga made the donation back on March 9, on the day of his birthday. They said, "Suga wanted to help the children who could not recover financially due to their familial circumstances and wished for them to grow up in a healthy and optimistic environment."

The director of the hospital expressed his gratitude and hoped that such gestures of kindness would "become a good influence in the society." He added, "I am proud of the BTS members who are enhancing our national image through great stage performances. I hope that they continue to grow and receive a lot of love globally as artists."

What a warmhearted and generous gesture from Suga!

that's such good news to hear!! one thing i really like about bts (and many other artists as well!!) is that they don't donate as a "fanservice" i.e. donating and immediately making it public that they did so in order to win public favor. in fact, many times, it's actually the places that the members donated to that make these announcements long after the actual donation!! i think that's really cool and an amazing way of showing bts's hardworking, always humble hearts.

especially yoongi, he always makes donations on his birthday usually to hospitals, I think in 2019/2018 he did something like this (sorry if the date is wrong, but i do remember reading something like this a couple years ago)? And maybe it was last year or 2019 but he bought meat for kids at an orphanage. people like this truly are kind people and i'm proud that these artists are always looking for ways to give back and share their good fortune with others. that's the real mark of an influencer. making a good impression on the world and repaying in kind. i hope to see this kind of news more often. it's really heartwarming.
