BTS has shown an authentic and touching message throughout their career, music, and philanthropy. They’re literal angels, and here’s how BTS ARMY has shown they are.
Supporting James Corden and Ashton Kutcher’s Charities as a thank you for Late Late Show appearance
After BTS appeared on the Late Late Show, ARMY donated to UK charity Magic Breakfast in honor of James Corden, who has been supporting this charity. It ensures that children from disadvantaged backgrounds can receive breakfast before school.
