The White House today has a Grammy-nominated Korean boy band, BTS, joining President Joe Biden next week to talk about “Asia’s inclusion and representation” and address discrimination against hate crimes and Asians. I announced that.
The music group’s visit to the White House next Tuesday follows Biden’s trip to South Korea, a US ally last week.
Biden speaks frankly about his commitment to combating the rise in anti-Asian hate crimes. Last year, the Democratic President signed the COVID-19 Hate Climb Act.
Biden, also known as BTS, and BTS will also discuss diversity and the K-pop group’s platform as youth ambassadors.
The band was nominated for the first Grammy Award last year after releasing a song called “Dynamite” as a gift to fans isolated by the coronavirus pandemic.
