BIGBANG’s G-Dragon has made a warm donation on his birthday, August 18.
He donated a total of 81.8 million won (approximately $71,700) to the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) in order to help worldwide refugees fleeing war and violence.
G-Dragon has been making donations each year on his birthday for the sick and the disabled and has encouraged his fans to follow his example through his social media accounts.
G-Dragon stated, “I want us to live in a peaceful world. It breaks my heart to see children flee from civil war and violence. I want to help create a place for them to rest a while,” and added, “Peace is not achieved by simply thinking about it. It is created by our collective efforts to achieve it.”
Also today (August 18), on his birthday, he will release a music video of his song “BULLSHIT” at 8:18 p.m. KST. It will be exclusively shared through a link in his USB album “Kwon Ji Yong” and will be the first content to be updated through the USB album.
