On June 7 local time, BTS participated in YouTube’s star-studded virtual graduation ceremony “Dear Class of 2020,” joining a lineup of speakers that included former President Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, former Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates, Alphabet and Google CEO Sundar Pichai, and activist Malala Yousafzai.
Each of the BTS members took turns sharing words of hope, comfort, and congratulations (RM in English, the other six members in Korean), reflecting on their own youth before encouraging graduates to take charge of their lives and forge their own paths as they chase their dreams.
Congratulations to the Class of 2020!
