SUGA responds to criticisms of BTS attending '76th United Nations General Assembly'

AKP STAFF

SUGA responded to criticisms of BTS attending the '76th United Nations General Assembly'.

BTS attended the '76th UN General Assembly' as guest speakers at the '2021 Sustainable Development Goals Moment' ('2021 SDG Moment') on September 20, but since then, they've received criticism about why they would appear at the meeting as artists. 

During a V Live session on September 22, SUGA expressed, "I heard a lot of people saying, 'You guys are singers. Why are you there?' We went to promote the 'SDG' and raise awareness. Please don't look at it with too much prejudice."

He continued, "We attended knowing our role. We were speakers. When we do interviews or when we do something like the 'UN General Assembly', viewer ratings matter. They told us a lot that when we participate the views went up."

The other BTS members also stated, "We think that we fulfilled our role if a lot of people watched."

In other news, BTS x Coldplay recently collaborated for their single "My Universe".

BTS chose to use their platform, aka MILLIONS of fans worldwide of ALL age groups, to raise awareness & do something they knew could only do good & benefit everyone. Their professionalism shows & I hope it doesn't go unnoticed. They're not just artists, they're people who genuinely care about what's going on in the world.
