BTS' RM's United Nations speech appears in multiple study materials and exams worldwide

(Bangtan Boys) BTS, Rap Monster
RM's speech, delivered at the UN General Assembly in September, has appeared in various academic texts and exams in multiple locations.

On November 4th, 'Herald Corporation' reported that many classrooms around the world have been referring to BTS' speech for educational purposes. For subjects such as English, sociology, or international studies, RM's full speech for "Generation Unlimited" has been used for study materials in the general curriculum, or as exam questions in countries including Korea, the United States, Singapore, and Vietnam.
 



For the exam above, one high school classroom in Korea has used the speech for a reading comprehension and composition question on the midterm. For the bottom photo, a middle school classroom in Singapore has presented a group photo of BTS as a "compulsory" piece of material in light of the speech, eventually utilizing the event to inform students about the importance of individual passion and confidence.




Furthermore, one principal of a certain high school had instructed students to watch the video of the speech before coming into school the next day. In another high school in Korea, a teacher had written a part of RM's speech on the board to make sure that the students read the transcription in full, despite having to study for another exam the next day.










  



Who knew school and K-Pop could be so closely connected? Have any of you encountered RM's speech in your daily lives?

it is so amazing to watch these boys make history and to see them influencing the world in such a positive way. I know k-pop in general saves a lot of souls from wanting to leave this world and I wish all k-pop artists to be happy and positive themselves because we all know how cruel and hard k-pop industry can be.

So it's really a plague. Oh lord. BTS is only a average boy group but lately it looks more like a cult. Everyone worships them. And that's actually scary.

I don't worship them. I admire them. I praise them for their hard work and accomplishments. But I don't worship them. There is a difference, and I think it's safe to say that majority of the ARMY's are like that aside from the usual hardcore fangirls. They are not gods, they themselves would be the first to admit that. RM said stuff needed to be said in this somewhat twisted world.


And to be quite honest with you, people praise them because they do good and spread messages that have made people happy and to some extent, brought people from the brink of death. Now I'm not sure where you're coming from this but I respect it and I just commented this in hopes of saying my opinion on this article.

I don't say everyone needs to like BTS and I know people won't but why question those who do? It might be an average boygroup for some who just see them on surface level and it might be a beacon of hope for somebody else struggling in life who finds them relatable n their music saved their life. Isn't that what music is about? Sharing stories, making your voice heard, enjoying it, finding peace/distraction etc. Atleast their aim is to use their music and influence for good. N this is not even about their music, his speech was inspirational, we hear or are taught the inspirational words of 100s of people. If his speech holds power to impact people then it should be used for it!

That is called fame. And they are using it to spread a positive message. What's wrong with that? It's not like US popular music that rap about killing gang members, fucking girls, and doing drugs....
