K-Pop idol group SEVENTEEN recently stood on the podium at the 13th UNESCO Youth Forum at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, France. They were assigned a special session and gave speeches and performances for about an hour.
During their speeches, they revealed why they had no choice but to overcome despite numerous criticisms and difficulties.
Woozi, a member and producer of the group, stated, “To be fair, they had a point. So everything came down to this one question: Would we overcome these challenges together or not? We weren’t discouraged. We were too young to be discouraged. The passion of our dreams wasn’t deterred in the slightest.”
He believed that each of the members had their own strengths, and were able to come together as one. He then took the time to thank each of the members of the team.

SEVENTEEN signed a business agreement with the Korean National Commission for UNESCO in August last year and has been carrying out the education campaign #GoingTogether. This year, it was expanded into a global campaign by signing a tripartite business agreement with UNESCO Headquarters and the Korean National Commission for UNESCO.
Meanwhile, the UNESCO Youth Forum is an event held during the UNESCO General Assembly and is a program designed to enable the young generation to raise their voices. It is an opportunity to strengthen solidarity by sharing opinions and experiences and seeking solutions to the problems faced by the young generation. SEVENTEEN is the first time that a Korean singer has exclusively conducted a special session at this event.
