BTS took part in the 76th UN General Assembly as the “Special Presidential Envoy for Future Generations and Culture.” For the event, the act delivered the thoughts and stories of future generations to the world.
On the 20th, BTS appeared as a speaker on behalf of future generations at the Sustainable Development Goals Moment (SCG Moment). This is the third time that the group spoke at the UN, following 2018 and 202. Standing on the podium, the seven members spoke in Korean.
Prior to attending the UN General Assembly, BTS collected the story of future generations by asking, “What were the past 2 yrs like for you, and what’s your world like today?” Introducing photos and texts delivered to them via social media, the act raised their voice for the future generation.
Jin said, “Therefore, I think that instead of the ‘lost generation,’ the ‘welcome generation’ is a more appropriate name. Instead of being afraid of change, this generation says ‘welcome’ as they walk forward into the future.” RM added, “If we continue to believe in possibility and hope, we will not lose our way but discover new ones.”
RM concluded, “We thought that the world had stopped, but it continues to move forward. I believe that each choice is the beginning of change, not the end. I hope that in this new world, we can all say to each other, ‘Welcome.'”
Following their speech, BTS shared a video performance of the group performing “Permission to Dance” at the UN General Assembly. Nearing the end, dancers joined the members and danced the choreography that uses sign language meaning fun, dance, and peace.
