“Art is able to embrace the world of dreams and chaos. It develops awareness and shows how we perceive this world”, – told RM Apollo magazine.
“RM is not only a member of the famous BTS group, he is also a major art philanthropist. He pays special attention to South Korean artists. His collection contains many works by famous abstract artists. He has works by Yoo Young Kook, Yoon Hyun Geun, Kim Wan Ki, and Kim Chang Yeol. In 2020, the Arts Council of Korea named RM “Sponsor of the Year” in the field of arts. He received this title through a donation to the National Museum of Modern Art in Seoul. The money from the donation was used to reprint various art collections. In the future, these collections will be sent to public libraries throughout the country.“Apollo wrote.
“He also donated 100 million won (~$71,530) to the Korea Overseas Cultural Heritage Foundation (OKCHF) last September. This money went to the restoration of the royal clothes of the Joseon era.. Royal dress now located at the Los Angeles Museum of Art. Recently, on the Intersections: The Art Basel podcast, he revealed that he was thinking about having an open exhibition with his collection.”.
Regarding being included in the list of “40 under 40 in Asia-Pacific” RM said: “I am very honored and grateful for this recognition.”
