“If it weren’t for COVID-19, we would have been happily touring across the world with many of our live concert crews by now,” BTS said. “We are aware that a lot of communities need help due to COVID-19, and we wanted to support the music industry crews by making a donation. We hope to meet again on stage very soon.” (Forbes)
