BTS have encouraged their fans to get the coronavirus vaccine during their speech at the United Nations this week, revealing all seven of the band have already had it.

The K-pop band’s addressed the UN General Assembly this week, sharing a message of hope to fans that ‘the day we can meet again face to face is not far away’.

They explained: ‘What is important is the choices we make when we are faced with change. Some of you heard on the news that we are coming to the UN and a lot of you were wondering whether we have been vaccinated.

‘I will take this opportunity to say yes, all seven of us, of course we received vaccinations.’

BTS, which consists of J-Hope, Jungkook, V, RM, Suga, Jin and Jimin, received the Covid-19 vaccine so that they were able to eventually get back on tour and make live appearances such as at the UN.

They continued: ‘The vaccination was a sort of ticket to meeting our fans waiting for us and to being able to stand here before you today.

‘Just like we said in our message today, we too are doing the things that we are able to do right now. Like the vaccinations, efforts are continuously underway to keep this new reality going forward.

‘And I think the day we can meet again face to face is not far away. Until then, I hope we can fill each of our days to the brim with positive energy.

‘We thought the world had stopped but it continues to move forward. I believe that every choice we make is the beginning of change, not the end.’

After their speech, the band performed Permission To Dance at the UN headquarters in New York, marking the third time the Korean idols have spoken at the UN, previously appearing in 2018 and 2020.
