From golfing to visiting the White House, here’s what BTS is up to in the US

Korean boy group BTS traveled to the United States to meet with President Joe Biden and discuss the growing anti-Asian hatred in the country. The seven-member band met with the President of the United States at Tuesday’s event, but they were updating fans on their trip to the United States days before their big White House visit.

Here is a summary of everything BTS did during their trip to the United States.

The meeting at the White House

Band members J-Hope, RM, Suga, Jungkook, V, Jin and Jimin held a 35-minute meeting with the US president on Tuesday and discussed anti-Asian hate crimes and Asian inclusion.

In a video posted on the president’s official Twitter account, President Biden told the group that there has been a spike in anti-Asian hate crimes in the United States lately.

“Hate only hides. When good people talk about it and say how bad it is, it falls apart,” she said.

“People care a lot about what you say, and what you do is good for everyone. It’s not just your good talent. This is the message you communicate. It matters,” Biden added.

The leader of the RM Group thanked the President of the United States for signing the recent legislation to combat hate crimes related to COVID-19 in the country.

“We want to sincerely thank you for your decision, such as signing the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act. So we just want to be a little bit of help and we really appreciate the (efforts) of the White House and the administration to try to find solutions,” he added.

Before the meeting with the president, BTS joined White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre during her briefing with reporters.

Jimin said the group has been “devastated by the recent wave” of criminality and intolerance against Asian Americans.

“To put an end to this and support the cause, we would like to take this opportunity to speak again,” he said through an interpreter.

Equality begins when we open up and accept all of our differences, Suga said. “It’s not bad to be different,” she added.
