BTS & UNICEF Call for an End to Violence In & Around Schools (Video)

BTS is asking young people to help put a stop to violence in and around schools.

The South Korean boy band and UNICEF shared a new video in honor of UN International Day of Friendship.

The video features BTS singing their hit single “Answer: Love Myself” over fictional stories of young people encountering violence, bullying, and fear in and around schools, sending a message of friendship and support.

“Our LOVE MYSELF campaign is all about encouraging every young person to find the love from within themselves and spreading that love to others,” BTS said in a press release. “We want everyone to take part in ending violence by sharing love and kindness.”

BTS‘s LOVE MYSELF campaign has raised over $2 million to help UNICEF #ENDviolence.

UNICEF is urging young people leave a kind note for someone – in real life or online – and share it for others to see.

“Children and young people have told us time and again that being treated with kindness and respect helps them to feel safe in and around school,” UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore said. “Every day students face a range of violent acts, from bullying and physical attacks to corporal punishment, sexual assault and harassment online. By being kind, children and young people can show their support for each other and brighten someone’s day. We’re grateful to BTS for their continued commitment to making sure that no child is afraid to go to school.”

The seven-member South Korean boy band made an appearance on The Graham Norton Show on Thursday (October 11) in London, England.

“We are very lucky to live in a time of social media but our sincerity in our music, performance and our ARMY’s love, made it,” RM said during their interview, adding, “Life is full of dilemmas and we always have to have the pain inside. When the light comes we always have the shadows, which we can’t avoid, but we should always find the way to love ourselves, especially the youth, who should be happy and live their life.”
