BTS are always using their fame for good – and when it comes to the fight against motor-neurone disease, thats no different.

The K-pop boyband have joined Koreas Ice Bucket Challenge campaign to raise money and awareness for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrigs disease.

The Ice Bucket Challenge went viral in the summer of 2014, with participants dunking buckets of cold water over their heads and challenging others to do the same.

Now, Koreans have started a revival of the challenge to raise funds for Koreas first dedicated hospital for ALS patients.

A host of K-pop and K-drama stars have participated and donated to the cause, and thanks to singer Sean, BTS are the latest celebrities to join in.

The hip-hop star poured a cooler full of water over his head before tagging BTS in his post, urging them to carry on the chain.

Sean added: Chinese fans of BTS already sent 10 million won to the Seungil Hope Foundation under the names of BTSs V and Jungkook. Thank you sincerely.

And of course, the DNA hitmakers couldnt help but contribute to the cause.

션 선배님의 지목을 받아 아이스버킷 챌린지에 참여하게 되었습니다. 좋은 일에 함께하게 되어 정말 기쁜 마음입니다. 저희의 참여로 인해 더 많은 분들이 관심을 가져주셨으면 좋겠습니다. 감사합니다.

Sadly, RM, Jimin, J-Hope, Suga, Jungkook, V and Jin didnt film a video where they were soaked from head to toe – well, wed hate to see that perfect hair messed up – but they put their money were their mouths are instead.

The band tweeted their donation certificate to prove they had done their bit for the Ice Bucket Challenge.

A fair point.

BTS were praised earlier this month for another charitable gesture, after they helped raise $1 million for UNICEFs #ENDViolence campaign.
