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’ll help them because I was like them
because I had spirit
May your dreams be bright with your nightmare erased
Be right there
May the peace be right there

If I
can give strength to someone
can be a light to someone
I wish, I could be a
Piece Of Peace

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.

Our 2021 birthday campaign for Hoseok benefits Tap Elderly Women’s Wisdom for Youth. 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!
