BTS Dear Class of 2020: V congratulates graduates with sign language; ARMY moved by Taehyung's gesture

BTS was a part of the Dear Class of 2020 line up. RM, Jin, Jimin, Jungkook, J-Hope, Suga and V dressed to kill when they sat at the National Museum of Korea to deliver their speeches as part of the YouTube special which took place on June 7. While every Bangtan Boy moved graduating students (and ARMY members who tuned in to watch BTS), the internet is highly impressed by one of the members. Several Twitter users noted that Kim Taehyung congratulated graduates with special sign language. 

The singer sat in a crisp suit beside his fellow band members when he reached out to the students graduating and said, "I'd like to congratulate all of you who are graduating on this very special day, he said, clapping. When you look back on this day years from now, how will you remember it? Many o fun are at war with reality right now. But I hope we can take bits of this moment with us, in a photograph or a memo, to look back and remember June of 2020, and how it compares to the new today you will be embracing."

He looked back at his journey and confessed, "In all honesty, I wasn’t born with the talents of singing or dancing and wasn't much the persevering type, either. I began later than my friends, and I was lacking in some aspects, but I soon developed a joy and passion for singing and dancing. This joy has motivated my persistent efforts, and has led me to where I stand today." 

TaeTae reached out to those in doubts with regard to their future and said, "If there is anyone out there who cannot see where they should go from here forth, I urge you to listen to your heart. Things may feel a little difficult right now, but somewhere out there, luck and opportunity is waiting for you. I believe that. On that note, I will remember this day. Today may not be my own graduation, but I will try to look back upon this day years from now and remember it as a memory to treasure. And I look forward to the day you will stand and tell us your own story." 

He ended his speech by clapping in sign language. This heartwarming gesture from the worldwide "Good Boy" has the internet in tears. Several Twitter users, fans and non-K-Pop fans, expressed their gratitude towards the singer. "Taehyung clapped in sign language at the end. That was sign language for cheering someone up. He did it for those who cant hear. He is the most considerate and kind hearted person the world has ever seen. You make our heart swell with pride Taehyung," a Taehyung stan page tweeted. 

"Just the fact that he did that for all deaf people is just amazing! Loved how he included it especially since I'm deaf myself. THANK YOU KIM TAEHYUNG," another TaeTae fan tweeted. Check out a few other tweets below: 

Apart from his touching gesture, V also drew the audiences' attention with his goofy acts during BTS' Boy With Luv, Spring Day and Mikrokosmos. While Namjoon, Seokjin, Yoongi, Hobi, JK and Mochi are seen grooving to their songs, TaeTae appeared to be enjoying their performance the most. The ARMY couldn't stop gushing at the singer as he reached out to Jin's chin to appreciate his chin. The ARMY showered the singer with love as he broke into a tiny dance that other BTS members followed almost immediately. Taehyung also left the ARMY thirsty when he shared a glimpse of his good boy turned hot look during an emotional song. 

Taehyung sure packed it almost all the emotions during one outing. Check out a few reactions below: 

Apart from Dear Class of 2020, BTS has also been in the news for their donation towards the Black Lives Matter movement. According to Variety, the K-Pop band donated a whopping one million towards the fight against racism. The singers' donation came a few days after an unarmed African American citizen, George Floyd, died in the custody.

I wanna ask a questions, why these guys dont have any separate Insta or twitter account like every other singer or actor have in Korea... Because of privacy or something else.?

Anonymous : I think they want unity as if they all have separate accounts, they can end up fighting each other over the number of followers ect. Also they are a group and they can post all they want individually with their name's hashtag!
