BTS has delivered a UN General Assembly speech, and it has people going gaga over it. The band addressed a range of vital topics in their speech, but most of all, it included a special message for ARMY (their global fanbase), urging those among who aren’t vaccinated (the anti-COVID-19 vaccine) to get it done ASAP while addressing them as ‘the welcome generation’. “Instead of the lost generation, a more appropriate name would be the ‘welcome’ generation because instead of fearing change, this generation says, ‘Welcome,’ and keeps pushing ahead. They challenged the thought of their generation being ‘the COVID lost generation’ saying. ‘It was a stretch,'” expressed Suga in his potion of the speech.
“I hope we just don’t consider the future as grim darkness. We have people concerned for the world and searching for answers. There are still many pages left in the story about us and I feel like we shouldn’t talk like the ending has already been written,” urged Jungkook, while J-Hope described “the vaccine as a ticket to meeting fans.” Finally, CV concluded the speech promising, “We think the day we can meet again face to face is not far away.”
No sooner than their speech appeared online than ARMY reciprocated the love via wholesome tweets. Check out some of them below:
After today, our boys proved again that winning on Western awards is not even relevant anymore.
