Korean pop group BTS's journey through America reached a fever pitch last week with appearances on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" and the American Music Awards last week, and the band continued its tour de force on "Ellen" on Monday. The group performed a new song titled "Mic Drop" in front of a rabid crowd on the hit talk show.
The group made their American television debut on "Kimmel" on Nov. 15 and performed their hit song "DNA" at the 45th annual AMAs four days later. They are the latest Korean group to make the crossover to mainstream success in North America, following such artists as PSY and Girls' Generation.
The latest version of "Mic Drop," which will be featured on BTS's eighth Japanese single album due out Dec. 6, was remixed by DJ and producer Steve Aoki and also features a collaboration with rising rapper Desiigner. The studio version of the song was officially released on Friday, Nov. 24.
Prior to their performance on "Ellen," BTS sat down to speak about a slew of different topics from their learning the English language through watching "Friends" and their introspective lyrics that deal with mental health and sharing the same message despite language barriers.
