BTS always show just how much they can impact the world. Whether through their music or dedication to making a difference, they are role models! The group recently attended the 76th UN General Assembly when they delivered messages of comfort and hope to young people while talking about stories from their fans that impacted them.
Fans worldwide tuned it to hear the members speak to at the event for the third time about topics including COVID-19, climate change, and much more. As expected, all members showcased just how aware they are of everything going on in the world, and ARMYs couldn’t have been prouder.
Here is a look at 10+ moments from the speech, which showcase just how proud ARMYs are of BTS!
1. As always, BTS knows it’s either go big or go home!

the fact that bts have a fandom largely dominated by women and people of color and that they listen to us and speak on our behalf at places like the UN is so incredible

7. If anyone says K-Pop doesn’t teach you anything, BTS has just proved them wrong.

8. BTS uses their words to become a source of comfort for fans.
“We thought the world had stopped, but it continues to move forward. I believe every choice we make is the beginning of change, not the end. I hope that in this nascent new world, we can all say to each other, “Welcome.” –BTS, UN General Assembly SDG Moment, 210920 #BTSatUNGA pic.twitter.com/OzoKxCHpMP

9. As expected, BTS continues to represent Korea on a global stage!
The fact that they chose to speak in korean just shows us that how respectful they are towards their own nation. Even from years of getting hate for not knowing how to speak english to getting hated for being Asian still they chose to represent their country. RESPECT BTS💜 pic.twitter.com/IIPO25W3Gu
