According to media outlet reports on November 5, boy group ATEEZ has donated 100 million KRW (~ $72,000 USD) to support recovery after the shocking Itaewon tragedy on October 29. 

ATEEZ's donation, made to the Korea Disaster Relief Association, expresses the group's deep condolences toward all those who fell victim to the tragic incident. It's reported that the donation is a part of the group's earnings from their world tour activities. 

Meanwhile, earlier this month, ATEEZ member Hongjoong opened a photography exhibit to celebrate his birthday coming up on November 7. Fans attending the exhibit can make meaningful donations which will be used to provide scholarships to children who want to become musicians.

Parts of the Naver article that weren't mentioned in AKP. I'll add them here. (loosely translated)

"ATEEZ donated part of the proceeds from the concert to express their condolences to the victims of this tragedy.

In fact, ATEEZ is a hidden 'preceding idol' in the entertainment industry. They have been secretly donating to various relief organizations such as Good Neighbors, Children's Foundation, and UNICEF. In addition, participated in the donation of their voice talent that reads children's books for the poor in reading, and member Hongjoong plans to hold a free photo exhibition ahead of his birthday on November 7 and donate activities for children who dream of music under the name of his fan club."
