One of the students who received the scholarship said, “I’ll focus on my studies, and after finding employment at a public institution, I also want to donate scholarships to my alma mater for my juniors.”


Hoseok is an inspiration in the eyes of these youngsters.



On June 10th, 15 students of Kukje High School were also awarded scholarships utilizing Hoseok's donations.

His donations will continue being used for 5 years for awarding of scholarships, with students reaping the benefits for quite some time now.

He has donated approximately 700 million KRW (630,000 USD), and this figure doesn't include the donations requested to be kept private.

Sharp-eyed fans also spotted art pieces in the corner of one of j-hope's weverse posts in 2019 and then again more clearly in a twitter post in 2020.

These art pieces were made by South African women registered with a Non-profit organization by the name of MONKEYBIZ.

The objective of the organization is to provide women possessing love and knowledge of traditional African beadwork with sustainable financial independence while simultaneously trying to revive this age-old bead handicraft by making contemporary artworks with it.
