On August 2, a heartwarming story surfaced from South Korea, shedding light on BTS’ J-Hope’s years-long support for an animal shelter. This silent act of kindness captured the hearts of fans and the public alike, showcasing the caring side of the K-pop star.
Silent Support for the Animal Shelter
Before J-Hope’s intervention, the animal shelter was in a dire state, struggling with open roofs and broken infrastructure. Over the years, the BTS members had quietly contributed to the shelter, enabling them to undergo a complete transformation. With his donations, they were able to provide the dogs with blankets and sturdier materials, alleviating the burden on the elderly lady who ran the shelter. Remarkably, even during his military service, Hobi continued to support the shelter by sending dog food. His commitment to this cause touched the hearts of many.
