The upcoming SNL appearance will air one day after BTS’ new album, Map of the Soul: Persona drops on April 12. The South Korean boyband made many television appearances last year in support of their chart-topping album Love Yourself: Answer, including a guest spot on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” in the U.S. and “The Graham Norton Show” in the U.K.
Given their massive global popularity, it seems likely SNL audience members will give RM, Jimin, Suga, V, J-Hope, Jungkook and Jin a warm welcome. Wouldn’t it be cool if the boys also end up in a skit somehow? (Harry Styles rocked an epic Mick Jagger impersonation during his SNL guest spot, after all …)
Overall, BTS had an incredible year in 2018. They smashed YouTube records, addressed the United Nations, and even logged two Guinness World Records. The global heartthrobs also played to thousands of adoring fans at sold-out concerts in venues all over the world.
