In a heartwarming announcement on September 20, 2023, HYBE revealed that all seven members of the iconic K-pop group BTS have renewed their exclusive contracts under BIGHIT MUSIC. This momentous news brought immense joy to fans worldwide, especially as the members are gradually enlisting for their mandatory military service and simultaneously pursuing solo projects.
A Token of Gratitude: BTS’s Generous Donation
As a gesture of gratitude to their dedicated fanbase known as ARMY, the Bangtan Boys made a substantial donation to the Korean Committee. BIGHIT MUSIC contributed a generous sum of 1 billion won, which is approximately equivalent to 6,25,00,00 Indian currency, to UNICEF for the Korean Committee.
This philanthropic act is an extension of their ongoing LOVE MYSELF campaign, which was launched in November 2017 with the aim to #ENDviolence against minors and ensure the safety and well-being of children and teenagers worldwide. BTS and their fans have previously joined forces to raise funds to combat issues such as domestic violence, school violence, and sexual assault.
