BTS gave a special performance at the United Nations in New York on Monday, addressed the rally, and then cut a video of them in a respectful suit in the auditorium, lobby and front of the iconic building. The group has recently been nominated by the UN as Special Envoy for Future Generations and Culture.
After being introduced by the President of the Republic of Korea Moon Jae-in, members of the group shared several comments about the epidemic they received from fans.
“It’s an honor to be here today,” the group’s RM said through a translator. “We have appointed BTS, the Special Envoy of the Republic of Korea. We are here today to share the stories of our future generations. Before we got here we asked teenagers and young people around the world about the last two years and the world today. Check out the moments shared below.
The scene was then filmed in a video of their hit “Permission to Dance” which took place in and around the iconic United Nations building, especially on the east side of New York, with dozens of dancers. The video appears to have been shown over the past few days, as the weather in New York was crystal-clear over the weekend.
The event is part of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals program and will take place at the beginning of the UN General Assembly High-Level Week. According to the declaration, “This occurs when the world experiences a deeply uneven response to the Kovid-1 pandemic epidemic, which carries the risk of a two-tier recovery, with significant implications for the progress of SDGs, especially in developing countries.”
Directed by Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, the moment is designed to provide a platform for world leaders to demonstrate the plans, actions and solutions needed to end the Covid-1 pandemic epidemic and move the world forward toward SDGs.
