Popular K-pop boy group BTS is going to the White House!
Following U.S. President Joe Biden's recent visit to South Korea, the White House announced that the boy group is scheduled to join the president to talk about "Asian inclusion and representation."
"On May 31, BTS will join President Biden at the White House to discuss Asian inclusion and representation, and to address anti-Asian hate crimes and discrimination which have become more prominent issues in recent years," the White House shared in a statement.
BTS' leader RM took to Weverse to share his thoughts about the meeting, saying, "Yes, it just happened to go that way. Unexpected things seem to continue to happen in life. I'm going for a good cause. The last time I was traveling around the U.S., I saw the White House from the distance. Now, I'll be going in."
He added, "This came to happen thanks to you guys, so the honor is yours too. Please support us a lot."
In 2021, the group had the honor of accompanying then South Korean President Moon Jae In as Special Presidential Envoy for Future Generations and Culture at the 76th United Nations General Assembly.
BTS is also set to drop the album Proof on June 10. The compilation album features some of their greatest hit tracks and even new ones to celebrate the group's "past, present, and future."
