BTS’s latest video hit 10 Million views which the UN uploaded on their official channel on Youtube breaking the internet. Sumaiya Akram reports.
When the UN itself uploads a video of BTS Army, the face of South Korean soft power performing in the United Nations General Assembly Hall why wouldn’t that hit more than a million views on the internet within a fraction of time! Seems impossible right?
But hell, yeah save your breath as this is the hottest recent musical phenomenon now? BTS has been introduced in a new formal diplomatic role as a special presidential envoy for future generations and culture the reason they gathered is to discuss sustainability and curb the pandemic.
The band has promoted and spread its message of hope and the power of the young generation who are in their 20s. So that they can shape their future and achieve world SDG’s. No one should be known as Covid’s lost generation and be neglected victims who couldn’t achieve life goals when stuck at home for almost 2 years now! Covid-19 has brought a catastrophic change in today’s world. To fight against this, we must be prepared which should be vaccination.
BTS in their speech also enthusiastically endorsed vaccines. “Yes, all seven of us, of course we’ve received vaccinations. The vaccine was a sort of ticket to meeting our fans waiting for us and to being able to stand here before you today,” J-Hope said. After talking about being special presidential envoys the band showed off the video performance of their “Permission to Dance” done in the UN headquarter premises. According to the members this song may bring and inspire positivity and acceptance.
“Every choice we make is the beginning of change, not the end,” said RM, the band’s leader. Promoting UN’s goal of 2030 which includes completion of extreme poverty, bringing gender equality, saving mother nature, and help to preserve our world.
