The campaign, which was launched in October 2017, aims to empower youth around the world and also advocates for children's rights. The Korean artists are expected to speak about UNICEF's #LoveMysef and #EndViolence campaigns.

BTS has been promoting the advocacy to end violence against the youth for the past two years.

When BTS celebrated their fifth anniversary last June, Fore congratulated and thanked them for raising over US$1 million for the campaign. BTS has been working with UNICEF with numerous donations, which come from some of the income from the sales of physical albums of the "Love Yourself" series, donations of income from the sales of official goods for the LOVE MYSELF campaign, and more. The messages in their songs alone, inform and encourage young people to stay true to who they are, think critically about society, and most importantly, to love themselves no matter what.
