BTS donated 100 million KRW to the 416 Sewol Families
‘416 Sewol Families’ is an organization founded by the families of the dead and missing, as well as survivors of the Sewol Tragedy. Each member donated 10 million KRW and Big Hit donated 30 million KRW. At the time of the Sewol Disaster, ARMYs also donated relief goods to those who suffered. BTS also donated these funds quietly and were not told that their donations would be publicized. BTS decided to donate with hopes that this would give the surviving families of the tragedy even just a little bit of help and didn’t wish to tell the media about their donations.
