The money will be used to treat young patients with rare diseases, cancer and leukemia.
"I hope it can be of some help to children in pain so they can smile again," Jung-kook said.
Hospital head Choi Eun-hwa said, "Caring for children determines their future, so donating to this cause is like investing in the future and giving hope and relief to the families of patients. We will honor the intention of this generous donation and do our best so the children become healthy again and return to their homes, schools and friends."
