BTS's RM donates 100 million KRW (~$85,146) to the Cultural Foundation of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art

RM, the leader of the global group BTS that is writing unprecedented history, donated 100 million KRW (~$85,146) to the Cultural Foundation of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art.

The National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art announced on September 14 that "RM donated 100 million KRW through the foundation to spread the culture of reading 'Beautiful Art Books'."

RM celebrated his birthday two days before the announcement was made public. In celebration of his birthday, he sponsored the production of art books that were out of print and difficult to obtain, along with materials that needed to be reissued. The produced books are donated to public libraries and elementary, middle, and high school libraries in mountainous areas across the country. These books were also allocated in the art bookstore of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art so that anyone could see them.


The National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art stated, "RM expressed that it would be nice for teenagers who have difficulty accessing art museums to easily access art. We will try to spread the book reading culture with RM, who has a good influence on expanding their interest in art despite his busy schedules."

RM's love for art is also well-known in the art world. The Chosun Ilbo reported last year that RM is very fond of Korean art regardless of genre, from late painters such as Do Sang Bong, Byeon Wol Ryong, and Son Sang Ki to moon jar potter Kwon Dae Seop, and actually has a considerable eye for these arts.

Kim In Hye
, a researcher at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, explained in an interview with the media at the time, "I coincidentally met RM who came to Deoksugung Palace and had a chance to talk with him. He was knowledgeable and interpreted Lee Kae Dae's painting in connection with Western mythology."

Namjoon is so cool. I love seeing him enjoying art and nature in his free time and sharing it with us. He's an inspiration to people who love art. His hobbies are really interesting and a good influence especially on the young ones who are already consumed by the power of social media, nowadays. What a great guy! 💜
