The BTS returned to the UN General Assembly after two years. They had earlier delivered a speech to their fans and world leaders in support of their LOVE MYSELF campaign.
RM concluded the speech with a heartfelt verse, “Love Yourself. Speak yourself. Our tomorrow may be dark, painful, difficult. We might stumble or fall down. But the stars shine brightest when the night is darkest. And if the stars are hidden, we’ll let moonlight guide us….Let’s reimagine our world. We’re huddled together tired, but let’s dream again… Life goes on. Let’s live on.”
