Members of the South Korean boy group BTS have been vaccinated against COVID-19.
The boys themselves made the confirmation during their Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Moment at the 76th United Nations General Assembly on Monday, September 20.
"The vaccination was a sort of ticket to meeting our fans waiting for us and being able to stand before you today," Jung Ho-seok, who is more popularly known as J-Hope, said.
He added: "We, too, are doing the things that we're able to do right now.”
Now that all members of the group have been vaccinated, Kim Tae-hyung (more popularly known to fans as V) said he hopes to be able to see everyone in person.
"The day we can meet again isn't far away. Until then, I hope we can feel each of our days to the brim with positive energy," V said.
During their speech, members of the global sensation encouraged their fans to look forward to the future with hope.
This isn’t the first time BTS delivered a speech at the UN. The septet first gave a message in 2018 then again in 2020.
Meanwhile, the Philippine government continues to urge the public to get vaccinated to achieve herd immunity.
