President Moon presented K-pop sensation, BTS, its certificate of appointment as his special diplomatic envoys on Tuesday, September 14. He also expressed his gratitude to BTS for improving the global stature of the country.


The ceremony proclaimed BTS as the Special Presidential Envoy for Future Generations and Culture. The President gave each member a letter of appointment, a diplomatic passport, and a fountain pen. Last July, BTS was appointed as envoys to raise awareness on global issues among the younger generation.

To start off with their new responsibility, BTS will accompany Moon to the United Nations headquarters in New York City to attend the 76th UN General Assembly. On Monday, they will attend the Sustainable Development Goals Movement to deliver a special speech and perform online.

Moon also revealed that the UN had initially invited BTS to the ceremony. According to the Presidential office statement:

"The United Nations requested if I could attend the special SDG meeting on behalf of other national leaders, along with BTS on behalf of the global youth. That itself shows the enhanced global stature of South Korea.

"Some had even asked if we could invite BTS to hold a K-pop night when they make [a] state visit. As such you have been of great help diplomatically."



Moon also congratulated the group on the success of Butter, saying that BTS has greatly raised national dignity by enhancing the stature of K-pop and Korean culture.

On behalf of BTS, group leader RM said:

"It is a huge honor, both as an individual and a citizen, to be able to hold the title of Special Presidential Envoy for Future Generations and Culture. We're always thinking about how we could give more and return the love we have received, and we're just thankful that the President has presented us with such [a] big opportunity and do our best as the special envoy. As we have been to the UN once before, we'll return after successfully completing our job with our youthful vigor and passion as always. We're grateful to be granted such responsibility."

The upcoming visit will be BTS' third time to join the UN Assembly. In 2018, RM delivered a message on speaking about oneself during the UNICEF's Generation Unlimited Program. Last year, the group presented a pre-recorded message encouraging the youth to continue reaching for their dreams despite the pandemic.
