BTS has shared a national support message for the fight against COVID-19 to their YouTube channel.

The short video opens with the members greeting fans both in Korea and worldwide, while explaining they are speaking as cadets of the Korea Armed Forces Nursing Academy asked them to make the video in a relay effort from Korean celebrities to showcase their support for the fight against the pandemic.

The group mentioned how the pandemic has brought to attention how precious everyday life is, and they realised how precious time with fans is after having performed to empty seats during the virus outbreak. 

Bringing up the feeling of isolation due to the virus, they also touched on the need to have courage, and to remember we're all connected through both pain and love.

They also shared their hopes to see loved ones and fans again soon, and also called on soccer star Son Heung Min to continue the video relay.
