BTS Addresses The United Nations


BTS is breaking boundaries and slowly but surely becoming the best boy band this generation has ever seen. Monday they addressed the United Nations making them the first K-Pop group to do so. Kim Namjoon, more commonly known as RM and the leader of BTS gave a powerful speech urging all people, young and old, to have the room to be themselves and speak freely. 

We have all learned to love ourselves. Now I urge you to speak yourself. I'd like to ask all of you, what is your name? What excites you and makes your heart beat? Tell your story. I want to hear your voice and I want to hear your conviction. No matter who you are, where you're from, your skin color, your gender identity - just speak yourself.

A powerful message from the group that will go down in history as a monumental moment not only for the group but for music and humanity as well. See the full speech by RM below.
