Suga Makes Thoughtful Donations on His Birthday #GeniusYoongiDay

Edit: It should have been "orphanages" instead of "nurseries".

king of keeping promises!

i'm reminded of an interview where he said he wanted to do more charitable acts in the future (and hence not getting a tattoo)

holy moly that's a lot of beef! it's nice that that original idea was able to come to fruition, especially in such a positive way.

That's so nice of him to keep his birthday tradition going. I remember that Bangtan Bomb back in the day when he was making a whole bunch of care packages for fans for his birthday and it was so stressful to watch because it looked like so much work, lol

nurseries?? beef?? since when do babies eat beef? am I missing something here? what is a nursery in this context?

I think it should have been orphanages instead of nurseries.
froggster 9th-Mar-2018 05:35 pm (UTC)
that would make a lot more sense

Do you mean the one from the twitter video of Hoseok with the cake? It's perfect lol. I'm guessing that's his studio.

These are always cute. Did ARMY do some donations as well? I don't really keep up with stuff like that but I assume since they can't do gifts anymore they probably had some charity stuff going instead. The one thing I like about fandom culture - they can raise some $$$ lol.

In my search for a translation of the article I saw that ARMYs in Vietnam organized a blood donation day and ARMYs in Canada donated to mental health causes.

That's awesome! Thanks. I'm very much in favor of less gift-y, more donate-y birthday projects, they're the way to do.

that's great!

Yeah I kinda like how every year for GD's birthday whatever fans donate, GD will match. Oh I dunno that's just so cute to me. I hope more idols will do things like this.

What a thoughtful hyung. I just hope the donations are going to the right people and aren't being misused and taken home by the caretakers and not given to the kiddos to eat.
bethmai 9th-Mar-2018 07:21 pm (UTC)
he's such a thoughtful guy, love him

jackieee94 10th-Mar-2018 02:08 am (UTC)
Awww that’s a very sweet gesture.

Did all of BTS member didnt receive gift anymore or issit BigHit policy?

Thats a very nice gesture of him. Happy Birthday and I wish him success!

[need to get this out of my chest] recently i realize the sole reason i dont follow him on purpose despite liking him is that hes not good for my health lmaooo
mc1a 10th-Mar-2018 02:55 pm (UTC)
Well BigHit said they wouldn't accept gifts anymore (except for letters) starting with April 1 so I think some gifts were still sent. I searched on twitter out of curiosity but I haven't seen anything like the mountains of presents they used to receive from fans. Most birthday projects involved donations and charity activities. That was a very nice change.
sparkb 10th-Mar-2018 04:26 pm (UTC)
Ooohhh so its rather new, thats niceee. The only thing i like from idol gift culture is fans can encourage the artist to dress better lol (deep in my heart im still hoping someone gift yoongi a watch that is not rolex sdgfdd)

You can read more about it in this post: https://omonatheydidnt.livejournal.com/21848037.html

Except for the obsession with Gucci yeah, they were getting nice clothes and accessories but it was time to be over with all that. It was long overdue.
