A recent post on the online community Theqoo lists out Top 5 most charitable K-pop idols
Accordingly, Top 5 idol groups with the highest cumulative amount of donations are:
5th place: BLACKPINK – Over 150 million won
4th place: EXO – Over 240 million won
3rd place: TWICE – Over 400 million won
2nd place: IU – Over 4.8 billion won
1st place: BTS – Over 11 billion won
Under the post, netizens left comments:
- IU is amazing on her own.
- Many celebrities donate anonymously due to taxes, what’s the point of ranking them like this? Just applaud when their charitable actions come to light.
- They’re all impressive.
- Didn’t Jang Nara also donate nearly 10 billion won? Oh wait, she’s not an idol.
- IU is cool.
- Regardless of the amount, I’m thankful and impressed by everyone who donated, including those mentioned in this post.
- I love both BTS and IU
- IU probably donated more than what’s mentioned here. She hasn’t disclosed the exact amount.
- For BTS, individual donations might not be included?
