Boy band Bangtan Boys, also known as BTS, will make a speech at the UN General Assembly next week. BTS will be the first K-pop act to hold a solo concert at the venue.

World leaders on Tuesday will begin six days of high-level debate at the General Assembly during which the new thaw in relations on the Korean peninsula will be a top agenda item.

The source said the K-pop boy band will attend the ceremonial event for "Generation Unlimited", which is a new UNICEF global partnership aimed at teens and young adults aged between ten and 24.

UNICEF said the global population of adolescents and young people will reach 2 billion by 2030 and without investment in education and skills training, they will be unprepared for future workforce.

BTS has been promoting the advocacy to end violence against the youth for the past two years. The messages in their songs alone, inform and encourage young people to stay true to who they are, think critically about society, and most importantly, to love themselves no matter what. 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.

High authority figures including the secretary general of the UN Antonio Guterres, the executive director of UNICEF Henrietta Fore, the first lady of South Korea Kim Jung Sook, and more are scheduled to attend the ceremony.

BTS is now touring North America for their Love Yourself world concert tour to promote their latest album Love Yourself: Answer.
