BTS Makes History As They Address The United Nations

It’s another day and more history being made by the global K-pop sensation that is BTS. This time the boys appeared before the 73rd Assembly of the United Nations to deliver a message of unity and love at the “Generation Unlimited” ceremonial event in NYC on September 24th 2018. The leader of BTS, Kim Namjoon, RM, spoke for the group, about the issues their fans, and young people face today.

 

RM reflected on his childhood in Korea and when he began to feel self-doubt. He recalled it was around “9 or 10” when he started to “worry about what other people thought of me and started seeing myself through their eyes,” he said. He added, “I stopped looking up at the night sky and the stars. I stopped daydreaming.” He explained, “I tried to jam myself into the molds other people made. Soon I began to shut out my own voice and started to listen to the voices of others.” He closed out his speech by saying, “I have many faults and I have many more fears but I’m gonna embrace myself as hard as I can and I’m starting to love myself, gradually, just little by little.”

Clearly, RM is still working towards his goal of self-love and the betterment of others. BTS’s next appearance will be on Good Morning America, where the boys will take over Time Square on Wednesday, September 26th, 2018.
