“During such difficult times, we hope we can bring you smiles and courage. ” – BTS
The international K-pop group BTS took part in YouTube’s virtual commencement ceremony titled “Dear Class of 2020,” a graduation celebration last June 7, along with famous figures and artists such as former US president Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and many more. The group was one of the commencement speakers for a virtual graduation event and also one of the performers at the virtual graduation night after-party.
BTS also gave an inspiring commencement speech in English and Korean and even shared their graduation memories, their feelings during the COVID-19 pandemic, plus supportive and encouraging messages for everyone. They also congratulated all graduates in the class of 2020 around the world.
They ended their speech with “Congratulations, Class of 2020,” while tossing graduation caps into the air. 🎓🎓🎓🎓🎓🎓🎓
Then they concluded the four and a half hour event with an amazing performance of their three-hit songs “Boy With Luv,” “Spring Day,” and Mikrokosmos.”
Thank you, BTS for making this moment special for all 2020 graduates around the world.
