The 13th edition of the UNESCO Youth Forum, held on November 14 in Paris, witnessed an electrifying engagement with the K-pop sensation, SEVENTEEN. Here's a rundown of the most captivating moments from their impactful session.
SEVENTEEN, a 13-member group, known for their independent spirit and creative essence, was warmly introduced to the audience.
Following, a video message was shared with SEVENTEEN'S audio in it, along with a message from the whole group with the highlight-
"we've come a long way together to built the world we want for ourselves we've always worked together with our eyes set on achieving that shared goal"
Kyung-Koo Han, the Secretary-General of the Korean National Commission for UNESCO, highlighted SEVENTEEN's remarkable contributions:
A video showcased SEVENTEEN's collaborative journey with the campaign, emphasizing fan interaction, donation events, and offline fan meeting concerts.
Six out of the 13 members shared personal stories and dreams, reflecting on their journey towards success.
The members have different nationalities: 9 of them are South Korean, two are Chinese (The8 or Xu Minghao and Wen Junhui), and two are Korean-American (Vernon and Joshua). Four members spoke in Korean, Wen Junhui in Chinese, and Joshua in English.
Junhui talked about how, at first, when they met in 2012, there used to be a language barrier, but they never stopped communicating, even if it was just through hand gestures or expressions, eventually learning the language to become K-pop artists.
Girl in red behind them is so real for this reaction. I’d momentarily loose it too if Minghao and Hoshi were in front of me— J🐯 Seventeenth Heaven 23.10.23 | Stream FML 🧡 (@DuchessHorangi) November 14, 2023
