Apart from their recent achievements for their hit song ‘Dynamite‘, another feat was added to BTS’s roster this 2020. Korea’s Blue House invited BTS to give a special speech for the first official “National Youth Day” ceremony!
Global sensation BTS also known as Bangtan Sonyeondan visited the Blue House for the first time today as youth representatives for National Youth Day.
This is their second time to meet President Moon Jae In and their third time to meet the First Lady Kim Jeong Suk.
A South Korean group known for their magical talent to transform sadness, pain, and hardships into hope and positivity through their songs.
Chosen as the youth ambassador fresh off from their achievement at the Billboard ‘Hot 100’ chart. This is a feat only the boy group has achieved among performers from South Korea.
In clear BTS fashion, after thanking fans and those who supported, the group shared speeches that came from their own personas and not just their namesakes/aliases as part of BTS.
Imparting messages of hope and encouragement to the youth today was the clear goal of the group.
The group’s maknae Jeon Jungkook expressed his thoughts about the relationship between the group and their fans.
JK shared their thankfulness for ARMY in supporting them and how it made them realize their goal as a group. The youngest member stated “We wouldn’t have come this far if we walked alone. We wouldn’t have danced and sang and enjoyed our journey.”
Purple Box for 2039
Representing the group’s color, a purple box from BTS was handed over to the Korean President. The box is intended for the youth which will be opened in 2039.
The group is not an amateur when it comes to being representatives for equally prestigious activities.
In 2018, they are chosen as youth ambassadors and attended the UN General Assembly. They spearheaded the ‘LOVE MYSELF’ and #ENDViolence campaign with UNICEF.
