According to CNN, BTS will speak for three minutes.

BTS will be helping to launch a campaign by the United Nations children's agency UNICEF called "Generation Unlimited".

We might be used to seeing them on stage singing, but K-Pop stars BTS are getting ready for a slightly different audience.

The campaign's launch is taking place on Monday 24 September at the United Nations headquarters in New York City. It marks the first time a K-pop act has been invited to the assembly.

Since November past year, BTS have been campaigning to stop violence against children. The Korean artists are expected to speak about UNICEF's #LoveMysef and #EndViolence campaigns.

Moreover, Geragos revealed that Kap and his girl, Hot 97's Nessa, are not boycotting the NFL. Geragos would not directly say that the news would regard Kaepernick signing a contract.

When BTS celebrated their fifth anniversary last June, Fore congratulated and thanked them for raising over US$1 million for the campaign. Additionally, BTS has also pledged to donate part of the profit from their Love Yourself series as well as from the sales of the campaign merchandise.

Thus, it is no surprise that BTS' influence and humanitarian deeds, through their campaigns, their music and their golden hearts, have resulted in them being invited to the United Nations General Assembly. Most of BTS songs encourage young people to stay true to themselves, be involved in social issues, and most importantly, to love themselves.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore will reportedly be in attendance.

Now on the USA leg of its "Love Yourself" world tour, BTS recently wrapped up its performance in Los Angeles.
