South Korean boy band BTS has been invited as special speakers for the 75th United Nations General Assembly once again in 2020, as per All KPop. If reports are to be believed, the seven-member band — which includes RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook — will address the challenges that the youth is facing during the global Covid-19 pandemic, in partnership with UNICEF Korea. 
Executive Director of UNICEF Henrietta H Fore announced that BTS will give a message of hope to viewers live on September 23 at 9 am EST and their speech has been titled, 'Let's Live Again In A New World' (literal translation). "Two years ago @BTS_twt inspired young people around the world with a powerful speech at the UN General Assembly. This year they are returning to share a message of hope amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Together, we can reimagine a better, fairer world," the tweet read and collected over 50,000 likes in no time.


This is not the first time that BTS will be among the speakers at the United Nations General Assembly. Back in 2018, RM aka Kim Nam Jun's address touched many hearts. Urging listeners to "speak yourself", he said, "I was born in Ilsan, a city near Seoul, South Korea. It’s a beautiful place, with a lake, hills, and even an annual flower festival. I spent a happy childhood there, and I was just an ordinary boy. I would look up at the night sky in wonder and dream the dreams of a boy. I used to imagine that I was a superhero, saving the world."

Asking fans to embrace themselves, he also added, "Tell me 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, gender identity: speak yourself."

Recently, members of the K-pop band also delivered a powerful motivational speech for South Korean youth during the country's inaugural Youth Day ceremony at the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae. Shedding light on the band's ups and downs, RM said, "Around 2018, I remember all the members felt lost after experiencing undeservedly overwhelming success. Even if our path is always lined with flowers and fruits, we can't be sure if that's how it'll always be." He added, "At the end of this uncertainty and depression, the seven of us began to fill each other with dreams and trust, like we were boys again."

Now, as BTS gears up for another speech at the UN General Assembly, BTS Army is blown away and can't stop talking about it. "BTS giving another UN speech......CAN YOU IMAGINE BEING ABLE TO SAY YOU GAVE ONE SPEECH NOT TO MENTION TWO???????" one tweet read and another said, "BTS did a UN speech in 2018, they did a speech for the class of 2020, they just did a speech for sk's youth day, now almost exactly 2 yrs later they'll be doing ANOTHER UN SPEECH on sept 23. this is INSANE. THEY'RE REALLY MAKING HISTORY AS THIS GENERATIONS LEADERS. I'M SO PROUD."



One tweet read, "BTS is giving another UN speech... getting the tissues ready," and another said, "BTS is having another UN speech about having hope during these difficult times of COVID-19. they really do care about what the world is going through, and I’m so proud to witness this historical moment as Army." Another tweet said, "ANOTHER UN SPEECH FOR KOREA’S PRIDE @BTS_twt!! IM SO PROUD OF THEM!" One fan shared an old clip and wrote, "Namjoon's speech was so impactful and heartwarming i just couldn’t stop crying and we're gonna get another UN speech soon."
