Secret Smiles

Welcome! If you’ve reached this page it means someone wanted to make your day a little brighter by sharing some sunshine!

This pay it forward project is part of a larger campaign for Jung Hoseok’s birthday. Don’t know Hoseok? Allow us to help you!

That’s our Hoseok (or Hobi) – one of seven members of the Korean boy group BTS. On stage, he’s known as J-Hope, and he shines as a rapper and a dancer.

Off stage, he always tries to keep the other members happy and energized. His motto, “I’m your hope, you’re my hope, I’m J-Hope” is something he often says to ARMY (fans of BTS). Even when he’s not feeling great, he keeps a smile on his face on for others and works through the hard times with them. The lyrics to his song Piece of Peace pt 1 convey his worldview on helping others:

I wanna help, for they like me had passion –

[I wanna] brighten their dreams, chase their nightmares

Peace will be right there

I wanna help, for they like me had spirit –

[I wanna] brighten their dreams, chase their nightmares

Peace will be right there

If I –

could be someone’s strength

could be someone’s light

I wish I could be a

piece of peace x2

Like Hoseok, One In An ARMY are a group of BTS fans who want to make the world a better place. Using BTS as our inspiration, we’ve run a series of successful donation campaigns and side projects since April 2018.

This month, One In An ARMY is working with Transforming Faces; a non-profit that partners with local teams in developing countries to provide funding, guidance, and medical training to provide comprehensive cleft lip and palate care that is accessible for all. The campaign will run for the entire month of February 2019. You can find out more about it by visiting our Current Campaign page, or on our Twitter.

It’s our wish that you’ll find joy and happiness in Hoseok the same way millions of fans around the world have. If you feel inspired to share the sunshine, please pass on the card to someone else and share your story on social media with #HOPEfulSmiles. You can download digital versions of the sunshine cards or print off a sheet from our drive. You never know when you can turn someone’s day around with a smile!


One In An ARMY is a fan collective of volunteers around the globe. Driven by our shared interest in global superstars, BTS, and the idea of using our collective power for global good, we seek out non-profit organizations worldwide and harness the power of ARMY into giving micro-donations over a one month period. Our motto, “I am ONE in an ARMY”, plays with the idea that many people giving small amounts can create a substantial impact when we work together.
