BTS, also known as Bangthan Boys, has become a household name not only in Korea but around the world. With their outstanding music, a group of seven boys from South Korea’s small nation have transcends boundaries and broke all barriers. South Korean President Moon Jae-in officially recognised BTS as the “Special Presidential Envoy for Future Generations and Culture” on Tuesday by awarding the Grammy-nominated pop group the certificates of appointment.
On September 14, BTS members RM, Suga, Jin, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook were given Diplomat passports and a fountain pen by Korean President Moon Jae, who also gave them their appointment papers as his special envoy. The K-pop stars met President Moon at his official office and residence at Blue House in Seoul, for the ceremony in which they were named “special Presidential envoys for future generations and culture.”
According to Mid-Day, President Moon and BTS will have their second meeting at the UN General Assembly for the Decade of Action’s Sustainable Development Goals Moment (SDG Moment).
The Blue House said in a statement that, “As BTS has delivered messages of comfort and hope to the entire world, its attendance at the UN General Assembly this time is expected to serve as a meaningful opportunity to expand communication with future generations around the world and draw their sympathy on major international issues.”
This is great news for all BTS fans, and BTS’s social media pages are flooded with congratulatory messages from fans.
