Member Suga had already donated more than $80,000 to support prevention & recovery from the outbreak.
BTS' scheduled tour dates in their native South Korea have been canceled due to concern over the global coronavirus outbreak, and some of their fans are helping with relief.
Following the news of the cancellation of the April concerts, the BTS A.R.M.Y. fans who had snagged a ticket for the sold-out shows began a movement to use their refunds to instead donate to help with relief and prevention efforts.
Local media in Korea reported that the Hope Bridge Korea Disaster Relief Association shared that donations saw an uptick in thousands of dollars after the cancellation news broke with some even donating in the name of BTS or the A.R.M.Y. fanbase itself.
