Later today they will also be the first ever K-pop band to perform on popular United States show Saturday Night Live.

A multilingual K-pop juggernaut, BTS mashes up pop, hip-hop, rock and dance music with huge, infectious energy and kinetic choreography. BTS is expected to hit the road for their worldwide "Love Yourself: Speak Yourself" tour on 3 May. The group will team up with Halsey - a guest on the studio version of "Boy With Luv" - for the latter performance, the news of which broke during commercials Saturday night. Though several members of the group were still clad in chunky white sneakers, they ditched their suits for loose-fitting trousers and baggy jackets - going for more of a hip-hop vibe.

Their album "Map of the Soul: Persona" looks set to be become the group's biggest hit yet, judging from how much they've achieved in just a few days.
