The main resonance of this year event was Youth, Generation, overcoming the pandemic, Climate change, spreading positivity, upliftment of humanity.
Permission to dance precisely covered all these topic with lyrics, choreo, theme, sets.
Or I am missing something though?
Or I might be missing something, I could not read those themes "Youth, Generation, overcoming the pandemic, Climate change, spreading positivity, upliftment of humanity." in the lyrics of PTD.
Unless Youth is equated with rebellion and not needing permissions.
Choreo/theme/sets will not survive for posterity as much as lyrics and music. And lyrics alone will carry any messages.
Edit: Also another reason is PTD is English, even outside the debates around Kpop groups doing English, UN as a specific case was an opportunity to represent S.Korea/Korean.
Still minor cribs, massive recognition.
