BTS' RM doesn't need another reason to win our hearts, but he just gave us one more reason to.

Last week, the leader of the Bangtan Boys made a generous donation of 100 million won to help students with impaired hearing, The Korea Times reported. The donation was made in celebration of his birthday, with the funds going to the Seoul Samsung School to help this group of students receive music education.

"RM made the donation, expressing his will to help students with hearing difficulties enjoy music through various means," a school official said, according to Yonhap.

The Seoul Samsung School is a specialised education institute for hearing-impaired students, and currently has 120 students enrolled, ranging from kindergarten through high school.

This is not the first time that a member of BTS has made a donation to charity — their philanthropic efforts are well-known to the world.

Besides teaming up with UNICEF Korea for an anti-violence campaign, the members also donated 3% from the sales of physical album copies of their Love Yourself series, and donated 500 million won to the cause together with Big Hit Entertainment.

Other touching charitable gestures by the group and its members in the past include donating to children's charities, supporting animal shelters, and disaster charities.

BTS has officially ended their period of rest, and are currently overseas for an as yet unconfirmed schedule.
