BTS 'It's not wrong to be different' - 성공스낵


Karine Jean-Pierre: They'll each speak first, and then the interpreter will come back up and interpret what they just said. They're not going to take any questions, they're just going to come here and give some words. Then we'll start the briefing.

RM: Thank you, Karine, for your kind words, and hi, we're BTS. It is a great honor to be invited to the White House today to discuss the important issue of anti-Asian hate crimes, Asian inclusion and diversity.

Jin: Today is the last day of the AANHPI Heritage Month. We join the White House to stand with the AANHPI community and to celebrate.

Jimin: We were devastated by the recent surge of hate crimes including Asian American hate crimes. To put a stop on this and support the cause, we'd like to take this opportunity to voice ourselves once again.

J-Hope: We are here today thanks to our ARMY, our fans worldwide, who have different nationalities and cultures and use different languages. We are truly and always grateful.

Jungkook: We still feel surprised that music created by South Korean artists reaches so many people around the world, transcending languages and cultural barriers. We believe music is always an amazing and wonderful unifier of all things.

Suga: It's not wrong to be different. I think equality begins when we open up and embrace all of our own differences.

V: Everyone has their own history. We hope today is one step forward to respecting and understanding everyone as a valuable person.

RM: And lastly, we thank President Biden and the White House for giving this important opportunity to speak about the important causes, remind ourselves of what we can do as artists. Once again, thank you very much.
