According to the Hope Bridge National Disaster Relief Association on the 9th March, BTS Suga donated 100 million won to support and restore damage from forest fires in Uljin, Gyeongbuk and Samcheok, Gangwon.
On his birthday (March 9), Suga decided to donate to share the pain of forest fire damage. Suga said, “I hope it will be used for the residents who are suffering from the damage of the forest fire.”
The wildfire, which is suspected to have begun Friday morning near a mountain in Ducheon-ri, Uljin County, spread rapidly northward to Samcheok due to strong winds.
The fires have torched mountainous areas along the coast about the size of 30,000 football fields over the past five days, and about 570 facilities and homes have been damaged, displacing 338 people from 220 households.
In 2020, Suga also donated 100 million won to overcome COVID-19 in Daegu, and in 2019, to commemorate his birthday, he also donated 100 million won to the Korea Pediatric Cancer Foundation in the name of the fandom ARMY.
Meanwhile, BTS Suga’s fans are celebrating his birthday by purchasing billboards and subway ads in major cities across the world, including New York City’s Times Square, Shinjuku Station in Tokyo, Japan and near HYBE Entertainment headquarters in Yongsan, central Seoul and Gangnam Station in southern Seoul, among many others.
