“Let us reimagine our world,” said BTS leader RM. “It might feel like it’s always night and we’ll always be alone, but the night is always darkest before the first light of dawn.”

The record-breaking South Korean K-pop band BTS gave a “message of hope” in a prerecorded video posted by UNICEF on September 23rd as part of the 75th UN General Assembly. 

The video is based on the band (Jin, J-Hope, V, Suga, Jungkook, RM and Jimin) showcasing their struggle of COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns in Korean and English encouraging followers to stay positive through the video United Nations Children’s Fund posted on Wednesday.

“If our voices can give strength to people, then that’s what we want, and that’s what we’ll keep on doing,” one of the members Jungkook said in his local language.

BTS is the first K-pop to debut at No. 1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 singles chart post “Dynamite” their first English song which has logged nearly 34 million only in US streams and 300,000 sales in the first week itself, the most prominent digital sale for any artist in almost three years. The United Nations Children’s Fund oversees development aid and humanitarian to children all over the world.

BTS has broken more records than you can imagine.

The most commented music video on YouTube history became the first Korean pop band in 2018 to take the first spot on the Billboard 200. The release of Map of the Soul: Persona took them to the 3rd number on the chart, this had never happened since Beatles that too in less than a year. BTS made a record on the Twitter platform for getting the most engagement. The Bangtan Sonyeondan, which means Bulletproof Boy Scouts, BTS are making their way to the US television, and that’s not all has also performed on Saturday Night Live.
