India is facing the biggest second wave of the COVID-19 and everyday, the numbers are growing. As of today, over 3,50,000 new cases & 2812 deaths has been recorded in the last 24 hours. It is by far the highest single-day reported cases globally. The spike in coronavirus cases has resulted in a shortage of oxygen cylinders, intensive care beds in hospitals, and ventilators in India, amongst other things. People are now dying not only because of Covid-19 but because of the lack of supplies. On April 23, BANGTAN INDIA posted a donation link on Twitter asking local fans and also those around the world to amplify about the fundraiser so that people can spread the word and donate in whatever capacity. “India is currently facing one of the worst Covid-19 outbreaks in the history of the pandemic.

As we know India is facing one of the worst 2nd waves of Covid 19, each passing day it's getting tougher on the health workers and front line workers.
We ask ARMYs around the world to help us as its a helpless situation.

The second wave is far deadlier than the first and our healthcare infrastructure is under a lot of pressure. Individuals, as well as organizations, are trying to support the needs of the many affected by Covid-19 as best as they can,” their statement read. In less than 12 hours, BTS Army raised an amount of Rs. 10 lakhs and the donations have not only be made from India but from fans across the world. In a day, the fundraiser saw a massive amount of Rs. 20+ lakhs (2 Million +).
The fan club is focusing on three organizations – Anubhuti Trust – a non-profit organization/NGO formed and self-led by women, TYCIA Foundation, which is providing the most vulnerable communities with food ration packages by creating a network of ‘Enablers’ across India and Mazdoor Kitchen, that is run by a team of volunteers comprising of students, artists and people from the community itself. “We’re currently prioritizing Maharashtra and Delhi NCR initiatives but wish to start extending our support to cities like Lucknow, Bangalore, Ranchi, and more that are badly hit, and with your help, we can,” they said.
BTS fans in Assam back in 2020 raised about 5.5 lakhs for surviving the floods, that had affected the lives of so many. Just like BTS fans, many fandoms have done several fund raising and charitable activities to help those in need. In our Your Stage section we have shared amazing works done by fans, one of the articles is about EXO-Ls donating medical essentials to an old age home.
It feels great to see K-Pop fans doing such wonderful things for the country and we are so proud of each an every one of them.

Like Idol, Like Fan

After an amazing journey of six years the members of JYPE’s boy band GOT7, left JYP Entertainment on 19th January, 2021. Ahgases all over the globe were of course sad that their idols’ journey as a band was over, but cheered and supported on their new ventures to follow their dreams as individual artists. The members also made it clear that their strong bond will only continue to get stronger, by posting on SNS the same picture with the hash tag “#GOT7FOREVER” in their captions, that trended on all social media platforms.
“The members love GOT7. They promised to set aside time to do GOT7 promotions,” an insider said.
On January 20, 2021 Sublime Artist Agency made an official announcement that Youngjae has joined them to pave a new, bright future. The agency stated , “We are happy to have the multi-talented artist Youngjae join us. We will provide unsparing support so that he can unleash his talents in various fields, including music. Please show your unchanging support and attention to Sublime Artist Agency’s artist Youngjae’s upcoming activities.”
Indian Ahgases wanted to properly show their support, love, and gratitude to Youngjae and Sublime Artists on behalf of the Indian fan base and so, after collecting a sum of donation from fellow Desi ahgases, they contacted a South Korean florist via whom they sent customized gifts since the agency does not accept natural flowers or plants. Along with the gifts, they also sent heart-touching messages to Youngjae and his new agency.
When we got in touch with Indian.Ahgase, the fanbase that made this possible, they stated that, “We have seen Youngjae fighting for his dream and career all this time. Some from the start and some from the middle, but one thing we all know is we love him and will support him together forever as a friend and as a family. So to show our support and love we decided to send him these precious gifts”
On 8th February, Sublime Artist Agency posted on Twitter and Facebook, the pictures of Youngjae and fellow label mate Yoon Seo Bin (ex JYP trainee and currently under Sublime Artist).
This is such a proud moment and a big achievement for Indian Aghases as it brings them closer to their idols! We are so proud of them for being such supportive fans and we are totally loving the relationship between the artists and the fandom. It is so good to see fandoms in India for various artists, doing their very best to show all the love and support to them. We love supportive fandoms and we are happy and proud for the initiative Indian Ahgases took, and further fondly anticipate more projects like this by other Indian fandoms in the future.
