More
than
1
million
people
tuned
to
watch
BTS
members
give
a
speech
at
the
United
Nations
General
Assembly
meeting
on
Monday
(September
20).
The
U.N.
General
Assembly
meeting
is
typically
attended
by
policymakers
and
politicians
but
garnered
huge
attention
due
to
the
K-pop
group’s
presence.

BTS

The
seven-member
boy
band
appeared
in
subdued
dark
suits
and
talked
about
rallying
young
people
to
work
towards
the
Sustainable
Development
Goals.
Due
to
COVID-19
restrictions,
BTS
spoke
before
a
largely
empty
General
Assembly
call,
with
delegates
in
the
front
rows
listening
in
silence
while
occasionally
snapping
a
picture
by
phone.

The
pop
stars
also
played
a
pre-recorded
video
of
their
track
Permission
to
Dance,
which
was
shot
in
the
General
Assembly
hall
and
on
the
world
body’s
lawn
facing
the
East
River.

The
seven
members

Jin,
Suga,
J-Hope,
RM,
Jimin,
V
and
Jungkook

talked
about
their
views
about
their
future
paths
were
being
shaped
by
the
pandemic.
“There
were
times
during
the
past
two
years
when
I
too
felt
bewildered
and
troubled
but
still
we
hear
people
cry
out,
‘let’s
live
on,
let’s
make
the
best
of
this
moment,'” singer
Jin
said
as
he
talked
about
responses
from
their
young
fans.

“We
can’t
stand
still
in
taking
on
new
challenges
when
we’re
in
the
ideal
time
of
our
lives,”
he
added.

Meanwhile,
RM
said,
“I’ve
heard
that
people
in
their
teens
and
20s
today
are
being
referred
to
as
covid’s
lost
generation.
I
think
it’s
a
stretch
to
say
they’re
lost,
just
because
the
path
they
tread
can’t
be
seen
by
grown-up
eyes.”

The
group
also
enthusiastically
endorsed
vaccines.
“Yes,
all
seven
of
us,
of
course,
we’ve
received
vaccinations.
The
vaccine
was
a
sort
of
ticket
to
meeting
our
fans
waiting
for
us
and
to
being
able
to
stand
here
before
you
today,” J-Hope
said
while
addressing
the
assembly
and
fans.

BTS
was
introduced
by
South
Korean
President
Moon
Jae-in,
by
calling
them
“the
artist
that
is
most
loved
by
the
people
around
the
world.”
This
also
marked
the
band’s
first
appearance
in
their
new
formal
diplomatic
role
as
“special
presidential
envoy
for
future
generations
and
culture,”
a
designation
by
the
South
Korean
President.
