An overview of The 무궁화 (Mugunghwa) Project
“The national flower of Korea is the mugunghwa, • Unlike most flowers, mugunghwa is remarkably tenacious and able to withstand both blight and insects. • This word accurately reflects the enduring nature of Korean culture, and the determination and perseverance of the Korean people.”
Recently there has been word going around about a girl at one of Bangtan’s fan meetings in Europe who called Jimin some cruel things to his face during the hi-touch event. Many fans of Bangtan know that regardless of the inaccuracy of the statements, Jimin has faced these comments since debut and while it is never acceptable, it has gotten to an outrageous point. It isn’t unknown among fans that Jimin often seems to struggle with confidence in himself despite being the handsome, talented, kind, and all-around beautiful individual that he is.
The 무궁화 (Mugunghwa) Project was created to give Jimin the love and encouragement that he deserves and that the fans feel for him, to reassure him of the effect and importance he holds to all of us. By completing this project, we hope to show our love and wish for Jimin to withstand the cruel and harsh comments and continue to grow and stand out like a beautiful 무궁화 flower.
To show that we hope for Jimin to have as much strength and endurance against difficult things as the 무궁화, we’ll fold pink origami flowers and write messages of encouragement on the inside or positive words that describe Jimin on the outer petals. When completed, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you my address to send it so I can compile the flowers with the rest of the package.
Write a letter to Jimin — it can be anything positive; his importance to you, his impact on your life as a fan, any encouraging words, whatever you’d like to say as long as it is positive. All letters will be monitored by me for appropriate content and then compiled into a message book. You can send letters and messages to email@example.com where I will give you a confirmation email that it has been received. Letters and messages may potentially be translated but it is not yet decided. Please make sure your message or letter is written in Korean or English. If you would like to write a hand-written letter, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you my address to send it so I can compile it with the rest of the package.
(TO BE ANNOUNCED)
Give a small gift to Jimin — nothing excessively large and within a reasonable size limit. Plushies are fine but they must be small. If you have a gift you would like to give to Jimin, you may email email@example.com and I will give you my address to send it so I can compile it with the rest of the package. Please provide your name and country so I can put it on your gift. If there are too many gift submissions, submissions on gifts will be capped.
Suggestions on what gifts to give Jimin as a gift from the whole of fans (essentially a gift from the entire project) will be decided and purchased with potential donation money.
Donations will be used towards purchasing any gift items decided by the fans in the poll. You may donate as little as any amount of cents and $1.00. Donations must be in USD.

It’s my hope that many fans will participate in this project so we can show Jimin just how loved and appreciated he truly is.
