BTS Gives Intense, Epic Performance of 'Mic Drop'

Later today they will also be the first ever K-pop band to perform on popular USA show Saturday Night Live. The Korean septet has built a fan base that's broad (its videos are viewed many hundreds of millions of times each), deep (its fans tend to be intensely devoted, especially on social media) and fully worldwide (its new record, Map of the Soul: Persona, is nearly certain to top the USA album charts this week).

Stay tuned for footage of BTS' SNL performance when it becomes available. It is also the sixth K-pop group music video to gather half a billion views.

BTS's music video for their song "Fake Love" has reached 500 million views!


This week has been sensational for BTS: the band broke YouTube's one-day viewing record, notching 78 million views for their collaboration with Halsey and 2 million comments. See more on BTS in the video below.

In previews for the show released earlier, cast member Cecily Strong and Emma Stone freaked out just standing on stage with the band. On Weekend Update, Colin Jost joked that President Donald Trump was "more obsessed with WikiLeaks than this audience is with BTS".
