UNICEF’s partnership with BTS/Big Hit Entertainment started in 2017 led by the Korean Committee for UNICEF to support UNICEF’s work to end violence.
The video, introduced by UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore, has BTS band members speaking from the heart about the impact of COVID-19 on their own experiences and encouraging young people not to feel alone in their difficulties and to reimagine a better world together. It is a powerful message of solidarity and hope.

BTS LOVE MYSELF campaign supports UNICEF’s #ENDviolence campaign.

My name is RM, the leader of the group BTS.
Two years ago here, I asked your name.
I urged you to let me hear your voice.
And I let myself be filled with imagination.
As a boy from the small city of Ilsan in Korea,
as a young man standing at the U.N. General Assembly,
as a global citizen of this world,
I imagined the limitless possibilities before all of us, my heart beating with excitement.
But COVID-19 was beyond my imagination.
Our world tour was canceled, all our plans went awry,
and I became alone.
I looked up but couldn’t see the stars at night.

I felt hopeless. Everything fell apart.
I could only look outside my window,
I could only go to my room.
Yesterday, I was singing and dancing with fans around the world,
and now my world had shrunk to a room.
And then, my friends took my hand.
We comforted each other and talked about what we could do together.

Life became simple, maybe for the first time.
It was a precious time, unwanted but welcome.
I’m used to an entire world shrinking in an instant.
When I’m on tour, I stand in bright lights and loud cheers,
but at night back in my room my world becomes only a few paces wide.
The room itself was small,
but my world and our world reached far and wide.
In this world we had our instruments, our phones and our fans.

But this time it felt different. It felt lonelier and smaller.
Why? I thought for a long time.
I thought, maybe because it became harder to imagine.
I was frustrated and depressed,
but I took notes, wrote songs, and thought about who I was.
I thought,
“If I give up here, then I’m not the star of my life.”
“This is what an awesome person would do.”

I don’t know who was first.
We embraced all these emotions and the seven of us began to make music together.
This is where the music came from, and this made us honest.
Our lives are unpredictable.
We don’t know all the answers.
I knew where I wanted to go, but not how I could get there.
All I did to get here was trust ourselves, and do my best, and love what I do.

I found again the people I love. The other members, my family, my friends.
I found the music I love, and I found myself.
Thinking about the future and trying hard are all important.
But cherishing yourself, encouraging yourself and keeping yourself happy is the most important.
In a world of uncertainty,
we must cherish the importance of “me,” “you” and “us”.
That’s the message of “Love Myself” we talked about for three years,
It’s the message in the lyrics of our song Dynamite: “I’m diamond, you know I glow up”.

One night we were working together.
Namjoon said he couldn’t see the stars any more,
but I saw my face reflected in the window. I saw all of our faces.
Our songs became the stories we wanted to tell each other.
We live in uncertainty, but really, nothing’s changed.
If there’s something I can do, if our voices can give strength to people,
then that’s what we want and that’s what we’ll keep on doing.

When I start feeling lost,
I remember my face in the window, like Jung Kook said.
I remember the words I spoke here two years ago.
“Love yourself, speak yourself”.
Now more than ever, we must try to remember who we are, and face who we are.
We must try to love ourselves, and imagine the future.
BTS will be there with you.
Our tomorrow may be dark, painful, difficult. We might stumble or fall down.
Stars shine brightest when the night is darkest.
If the stars are hidden, we’ll let moonlight guide us.
If even the moon is dark, let our faces be the light that helps us find our way.
Let’s Reimagine our world. We’re huddled together tired, but let’s dream again.
Let’s dream about a future when our worlds can break out of our small rooms again.
It might feel like it’s always night and we’ll always be alone,
But the night is always darkest before the first light of dawn.

Life goes on.

  1. Everytime I see these seven angels I realise I'm blessed to be an Army. I'm blessed to suffer lonesome, pain and depression because after going through all of it I found the light of the dawn that is my BTS they are my everything, they always inspire me and help me look up to myself, to love myself and accept myself as I am and to move on to do what I love. 💜 보라해 💜

    Love n support for India 🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳
    Thank u so much

  6. 안녕하세요? 실례하겠습니다. 대한민국 2003년 United Nations(국제연합) 홍보대사 가수 UN 최정원과 닮은 꼴 가수 2PM 옥택연(대표곡 '내 귀에 캔디'), 대한민국 경기도 고양시 일산 주엽고등학교 출신 성균관대학교 졸업생 ROTC 정현일(일반인)이 많이 닮았습니다. 방송인들을 세계의 영향력있는 사람들 중 대표로 인식하시고 내전과 다국적 전쟁 중에도 UN에서 연설하는 가수를 확인하며 세계인들의 직업 중 최우선으로 생각하는 직업군이 가수, 방송인들로 생각될 가능성이 있어 충격적인 이 상황에 맞춰 적극적으로 정보 공유합니다. 대한민국 방송국 다수가 대한민국 경기도 고양시 일산호수공원 인근에 위치해 있습니다. 일산은 여러분이 전쟁 중에도 아주 좋아하시는 것으로 생각되는 가수 BTS 리더 RM(김남준)이 지연이 있는 곳입니다. 관광센터 벽화가 RM입니다. 전쟁 중 많이 바쁘실텐데 일산에 가수 구경오시지요? 가수 많이 좋아하시죠? 저는 상당히 부정적으로 생각하고 있으나 반복 행위를 하시는 것으로 보아 저와 생각이 많이 다른 분들로 판단이 됩니다. 저는 뭐라 말할 수 없는 고통을 느끼고 있습니다. 많은 직업군이 있으나 올바른 판단으로 선한 영향력을 줄 수 있는 사람들에게 힘을 실어 주시길 부탁드립니다. 반기문 전 총장도 소녀시대 팬인지 인물 관련 유명 서적에 가수 소녀시대와 촬영한 사진을 도서에 자료로 활용하시고 소녀시대 서현, 티파니 등을 좋아하시는 것으로 느껴지며 미국 대스타 김윤진과 행사장에서 촬영한 사진을 확인하였습니다. 실례지만 UN이 뭐하는 기관인가요? 제가 충격과 고통으로 갑자기 생각이 나지 않습니다. 나한윤 올림
