In July this year, BTS members were appointed as a “Special Presidential Envoy” by the South Korean President Moon Jae. “The appointment of a special envoy is part of public diplomacy that seeks to broaden diplomatic horizons by gathering diplomatic capabilities. It will be carried out to enhance the image of the nation in leading [diplomatic] issues,” the Presidential Spokesperson had said back then.

Apart from representing South Korea in 75th United Nations’ General Assembly, BTS will also organise several events/activities to promote international cooperation aiming to tackle global issues including poverty and inequality.
