UPDATE: BTS has made their speech and can be watched below!
If you are ready for BTS to make history again, you can see the rising K-pop group hit another milestone in a few hours. Today, the idol group is slated to make an appearance at the United Nations headquarters in New York City, and it will be broadcast live to fans all around the world.
So, if you need an access point to the anticipated appearance, we’ve got you covered.
Earlier today, footage was released of BTS arriving at the UN building in New York following their recent live shows in Canada. Each of the group’s members were seen entering the building dressed in tailored suits, and they will make a brief speech this afternoon.
As it stands, BTS is slated to make a 3-minute speech on the UN stage Monday, September 24. The appearance will begin at 12:00 p.m. ET, and it will be available to stream online.
The best place to check out the stream will be through the United Nations’ website. The organization has a livestream set up for its events that can be found via the link above. The same feed is also streamed through the United Nations’ Facebook page.
For those curious about BTS’ charitable work, the band is well-known for their work with organizations like Unicef. BTS will appear at the UN today as part of the organization’s Generation Unlimited program, a global initiative created to bolster youth between the ages of 10 - 24. This work aligns with BTS’ on-going ‘Love Myself’ campaign which has raised nearly $900,000 USD since its foundation. The charity is set to donate its proceeds to Unicef’s on-going efforts to end violence against children worldwide.0comments
