Welcome to another PoB blog! As usual, this week was packed with exciting content with BTS attending the UNGA, and the release of the anticipated BTS×Coldplay track, My Universe. Without any further ado, let's have a look at what the boys achieved this week. After all, BTS is popular for making the impossible work out!
On September 18, ARMY’s phones lit up with notifications from Weverse and Twitter, as the boys posted pictures of themselves on their way to New York, as envoys of the President of the Republic of Korea. It was a nostalgic moment for everyone when #HaveASafeFlight trended on Twitter, a reminiscence of the times before the COVID-19 pandemic. Evident from the posts, BTS was excited to attend the UN General Assembly, and so were we! We also took a moment to celebrate Stigma by V as it surpassed 100 million streams on Spotify, the 80th BTS’ song to achieve this milestone! Congratulations V!
The morning of September 19 brought along with it friendly and warm Chuseok Greetings from BTS! The boys, in their unique and humorous way, wished for ARMY’s wishes to come true. They also talked about their favorite holiday dishes and reminded us that health is the most important asset of our being. On the occasion of Chuseok too, a Naver Post gifted us with beautiful photos of BTS dressed up in traditional Korean attire.
The moment we all had been eagerly waiting for arrived on September 20, when BTS took the stage at the UN General Assembly as Special Presidential Envoy for Future Generations and Culture, to throw light on the importance of sustainable development goals (SDG). It was a moment to behold for ARMY all across the globe, as we watched the members deliver their respective speeches one by one. Written earnestly from their heart, their message served to encourage everyone to stay positive during these trying times. To add a sprinkle of hope and joy, after their speech, BTS graced us with a unique and very special performance of Permission To Dance. The boys also visited the Metropolitan Museum Of Art with The First Lady of Korea.
Next, BTS posted a selfie with Megan Thee Stallion, who collaborated with them in a remix version of Butter, captioning it “Butter Crew,” and British band Coldplay, shared a preview of their collaboration with BTS. The members attempted to host a VLive to surprise ARMY but kept getting interrupted by poor wifi connection. Happy and relaxed, they later posted a pre-recorded broadcast where they talked about a plethora of topics including their genuine experience at the UNGA and how they overcame their feelings of nervousness. In the meantime, Chuseok DALMAJUNG OFFICIAL MERCH was made available on Weverse Shop. The first teaser of “In The SOOP BTS ver.” season 2, which is set to premiere on October 15, was also released.
To the great astonishment and delight of many fans, Coldplay posted a picture of them alongside BTS on their official Twitter account, on September 23. The second poster for BTS “In The SOOP BTS ver.” season 2 was revealed and Butter set another milestone in history as it was certified double platinum by RIAA.
On September 24, the much awaited collaborative single My Universe finally dropped! The song is a true musical miracle for fans all over the globe, the melodious voices and soothing lyrics brought forth a sense of warm comfort in these difficult times. A short preview of BTS and South Korean President Moon Jae-In's interview with Juju Chang, on Good Morning America, was released as well. BTS shared their genuine feelings on being a part of the UNGA and how they kept a positive approach towards life during the pandemic. They also shared that they couldn't wait to perform in front of their beloved fans again and hoping that ARMY all get vaccinated!
That's a wrap, everyone! We hope that this blog proves useful to you in catching up with what BTS did this week. Till then take care, stay hydrated and stream My Universe!
