BTS’s pastel-colored outfits from the band's super hit music video "Dynamite" which was auctioned for a charitable cause was sold for a whopping $162,500 at Julien’s Auctions Sunday.

"Dynamite" was the band's first No.1 single in the U.S. and it also created history as the first-ever K-pop single to top Billboard's "Hot 100 Chart." The South Korean boy band had teamed up with Julien’s Auctions to donate their pastel outfits to the MusiCares Charity Relief Auction which takes place annually. The pastel outfits included T-shirts, hats, sneakers, pants, and shirts that the group had worn during the climactic dance sequence in the record-breaking music video.

MusiCares Foundation is a non-profit organization that aims towards providing health, financial, and rehabilitation resources to the musicians in need, including those that were adversely affected by the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Darren Julien, the president and CEO of Julien’s Auctions, a privately held house-based auction in Culver City, California, had previously thanked the band for its one of a kind donation.

"We can’t think of a better way to highlight the work of MusiCares than with this ‘Dynamite’ contribution from BTS, whose groundbreaking music and uplifting messages of hope and optimism are what the world needs now. We thank BTS for the generous donation of their special one-of-a-kind items whose proceeds will benefit this most urgent initiative," said Julien, according to Soompi.

According to Julien’s Auctions, the outfit sets were estimated to sell for about $20,000 to $40,000. However, they greatly surpassed the estimated price and were bought by Japanese art collector Yusaku Maezawa and YouTuber Hikakin for a whopping $162,500.

"SOLD for $162,500! The costumes were worn in the music video of the mega-hit song ‘Dynamite’ donated by GRAMMY Nominated BTS, all to benefit MusiCares in today’s Charity Relief Auction," Julian's Auctions mentioned in a tweet.

BTS members are widely known for their charitable works and donations. Previously, the band had also donated a set of custom-made microphones that were used and signed by the members of the septet group to the Grammy Week 2020 charity auction. They were sold for $83,200.

Meanwhile, the band has bagged their first-ever Grammy nomination as "Dynamite" has been nominated in the "Best Pop Duo/Group Performance" category. The 63rd Grammy Awards ceremony is scheduled to broadcast on March 14, 2021, on CBS.
