    Speaking at a meeting dedicated to the problems of youth during the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly, Kim Nam-joon (better known as RM), the leader of the global pop sensation BTS, said "So let’s take one more step, we have learned how to love ourselves. So now I urge you to speak yourself."

    BTS made their horde of fans proud of them this evening as the boys became the first ever K-Pop stars to address the UN. The leader of the group, RM, delivered a heart-warming speech which lasted about 7 minutes at a special meeting dedicated to the launching of a new youth initiative titled “Generation Unlimited.”

    "No matter who you are, where you're from, your skin color, your gender identity, just speak yourself," RM said, adding "Find your name and find your voice by speaking yourself."

    Twitter users went wild, suggesting that an incredible number of people might have watched the live broadcast from the UN:
