BTS recently attended the UN General Assembly, where they gave a speech about youth and helped launch UNICEF's new Generation Unlimited campaign.

While there, they met with South Korea's First Lady Kim Jung Sook, who gifted them with custom-made watches from South Korean President Moon Jae In.

The watches have the President's signature inside the face, and an inscription on the back which reads 'putting people first', considered to be the President's philosophy.

The watches are only given as souvenirs to guests of the Blue House and on overseas occasions when the President wishes to show his gratitude.

When they met, The First Lady also congratulated BTS on their success on the Billboard charts and for being a strength to youth through their music.
