South Korean pop group and global sensation BTS attended the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Moment at the 2021 United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on September 20th to give a special speech. This is BTS’ third UN speech. In their speech, BTS highlighted how the youth of today managed to adapt and still “forge ahead” during the COVID-19 pandemic. More than 1 million people watched the BTS video performance and their live speech about climate change, the digital community, vaccines and the power of youth to change the future.

 

The seven members — Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook — said how their views about their future paths were being shaped by the pandemic. Their younger fans, in their teens and 20s, have spent nearly two years in the pandemic connecting with one another on a deeper level, and studying up on issues such as climate change and how they can make a difference. 

 

The pandemic has completely changed young people’s daily lives. Due to COVID-19, it has become difficult for them to meet their friends in person. Now, they have found another way by meeting one another in the online communities. BTS said they hope that their generation would be appreciated for its ability to create a positive and healthy world through their online communities rather than as victims of lost opportunities due to the pandemic.

The band also spoke their own word of wisdom and encouragement. “Sometimes it feels like the world is stuck in place. It feels like you’ve lost your way. There was a time when we felt the same way,” Jungkook said. “That’s why I heard that people refer to those in their teens and 20s as ‘Covid’s lost generation.’ … Because they’ve lost their way in a time when they need the most diverse opportunities and trials. … We thought the world stopped, but it continues to move forward. I believe that every choice that we make is the beginning of change, not the end. I hope that in this… new world we can say to each other: ‘Welcome’,” RM said. Jin added, “I think the title of ‘welcome generation’ is much more suitable than the lost generation. 

 

After their speech, the band showed a video performance of their summer hit song, Permission to Dance. The video showed the members singing and dancing throughout the General Assembly Hall and on the U.N. headquarters premises. The members said they hoped the song would inspire positivity and welcomeness.
