President Moon met the group to give them their appointment papers as his special envoy. To recall, the President appointed BTS as Special Presidential Envoy for Future Generations and Culture.

BTS members went to Cheong Wa Dae or Blue House, the official office and residence of President Moon located in Seoul, South Korea, for their appointment ceremony.

Manila Bulletin reported that the said event was held at Chungmusil, the dining hall of the main building.

President Moon gave BTS members their diplomatic passports and fountain pens as gifts after conferring the letters of appointment to the group. According to Korean media, BTS member J-Hope looked at President Moon and gave him two thumbs up after the commemorative photo was taken, causing attendees to burst into laughter.

President Moon and BTS will be in New York in order to attend the United Nations General Assembly and will be at the second meeting of the SDG Moment of the Decade of Action on Sept. 20.

Yonhap News reported that BTS will speak during the session and a video of their performance will be played.

Citing UN website, the Sustainable Development Goals Moment (SDG Moment) will seek to reinforce the continued relevance of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and to build momentum in advance of intergovernmental meetings and major summits as the world was grappling with the pandemic and major challenges to progress across the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

Based on a report on Manila Bulletin, a draft program of the Sustainable Development Goals Moment meeting showed an “Interlude performance by Special Guest” at 10:00 am.

As BTS has delivered messages of comfort and hope to the entire world, its attendance at the U.N. General Assembly this time is expected to serve as a meaningful opportunity to expand communication with future generations around the world and draw their sympathy on major international issues,” the Blue House said in a statement.

Last July, the Blue House said that BTS’ appointment as a special envoy was in line with South Korea’s aim to lead the global agenda for future generations and to expand diplomatic power in line with the country’s elevated status in the international community.

The appointment of a special envoy was part of public diplomacy and to enhance South Korea’s image of leading global issues through collaboration with private experts.
