President Moon Jae-in congratulated @BTS_twt on becoming the first Asian act to win artist of the year, considered the top award, at the 2021 American Music Awards, saying the win could help Korean people increase their confidence in Korean culture. (1/3)

Citing recent remarks by Joseph Nye, professor emeritus at Harvard University at a conference on Korea's soft power, that South Korea is well endowed with soft power on culture, Moon said such cultural success has boosted the nation's status globally.

During the conference, Nye said many Korean people think they are left behind, despite their success over the past 60 years.

Moon said @BTS_twt has confirmed Nye's assessment and asked people to have pride and confidence. (3/3)
