BTS delivered a “message of hope” during the 75th United Nations General Assembly Wednesday.
The hitmakers spoke about the difficulties that future generations were facing due to COVID-19.
RM began, “It is a great honour for us to have this valuable opportunity to speak in a session in the 75th UN General Assembly.”
“COVID-19 was beyond my imagination. Our world tour was totally cancelled, all our plans went away, and I became alone,” he shared. “I looked up but couldn’t see the stars at night.”
The band explained how they eventually began working on songs together with their feelings and experiences.
“When I start feeling lost… I remember the words I spoke here two years ago: ‘Love yourself, speak yourself,'” RM told fans. “Now more than ever, we must try to remember who we are and face who we are. We must try to love ourselves and imagine the future. BTS will be there with you.”
The appearance marked the South Korean boyband’s second time speaking at the UN General Assembly.
The group were also invited to speak at the 73rd general assembly back in 2018.
BTS has worked with UNICEF since 2017 as part of the “Love Myself” campaign to end violence against youths.
