[News] BTS’s Fans ARMY Donate Refunds From Concert Cancelation To Help Coronavirus Prevention [200228]

Following the cancelation of BTS’ Seoul concerts due to concerns about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), many of the group’s fans have donated their refunds to help with outbreak prevention.

On February 27, it was announced that BTS’s “Map of the Soul Tour” stops in Seoul that were planned for April 11, 12, 18, and 19 would be canceled due to safety concerns because of the coronavirus outbreak. All ticket holders therefore are receiving refunds.

A source from Hope Bridge Korea Disaster Relief Association told OSEN on February 28, “After the cancelation of BTS’s Seoul concerts, their fans have been donating their refunds and sharing proof of their donations online.”

They said, “BTS’s fans have been donating after Suga donated 100 million won [approximately $83,000], but there were particularly a lot of donations today. We received 453 donations today by 3 p.m. that were registered under ARMY’s name, BTS member names, or fans’ own names. The donation amount has reached 19,382,416 won [approximately $16,000].”

As of 9 a.m. KST on February 28, there were 256 more confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Korea, bringing the total in the country to 2,022.

  1. This is pretty awesome. What a wonderful way to give back to the community. I know a fansite of Tae’s donated 1,230,000.00 won (1024.73 USD) in his name to the COVUD-19. It really is the right thing to do. So many people are getting sick now is the time to come together and show some humanity.
