BTS’ Suga Celebrates Birthday By Making Heartwarming Donation
On March 11, Keimyung University Dongsan Hospital shared that Suga donated 100 million won (approximately $87,980) to help treat pediatric cancer patients as a way to celebrate his 28th (by international reckoning) birthday.
Suga, whose birthday was on March 9, said, “I hope this donation will help children who are not receiving treatment due to difficult family circumstances so that they can grow healthy and bright.”
Cho Ji Heum, the director of Keimyung University Dongsan Hospital, stated, “Suga’s donation is touching, and we are grateful for it. We hope that this good influence will spread throughout society. We are proud of the BTS members who are enhancing national prestige through good stages. We hope you will continue to work as artists who are loved all over the world.”
This isn’t the first time Suga has made a donation on his birthday. In 2018, he sent gifts of Korean beef to 39 orphanages as a way to keep a promise he’d made to fans years ago, and in 2019, he donated 100 million won and 329 dolls under the name ARMY (official fan club name) to celebrate his birthday.
Recently, it was confirmed that BTS will be performing at the upcoming Grammy Awards.
