BTS once again made history as they participated at the 76th United Nations General Assembly in New York! The group gained praise from fans worldwide for their meaningful speech and their dazzling visuals.
Yet, if their schedule wasn’t hectic enough, the group still found time to sit down and chat with ARMYs, even if their internet didn’t want to cooperate with the members.
As well as talking about meeting Megan Thee Stallion and reacting to Jungkook taking off his socks, the members discussed what happened during the event itself. In particular, Suga spoke about how so many ARMYs had watched the live stream to support them.
We are just speakers. During the interview, the interviewer said that for previous sessions there was a limited number of views. But because we came, the number of views went up. They talked about it a lot.
Suga then spoke about the fact that, before the appearance, some people had questioned why BTS had been invited, considering they are singers rather than politicians.
At first, people were like, ‘Aren’t you a singer? Why would you go there? What would you do?’ We are aware of that, and we came for that role. We are here to support SDG (Sustainable Development Goals). We came here to do that as special envoys.
He then explained that he didn’t mind what people thought because they were there to support an important issue. He added, “You don’t need to have a bias,” referring to the fact that people didn’t have to look at their appearance through rose-tinted glasses or a biased viewpoint.
After the broadcast, fans couldn’t stop praising Suga’s comments and that the group is focused on using their influence for good, and that the negativity will not impact them continuing to do so!

Suga : .. Actually we are speakers… When we did some interviews, many interviewers said when there is UNGA, usually the number of views is limited but when we did do that, like when we did do as speakers, the number of views actually increased. + pic.twitter.com/7pRCB2w4lk
