Superstar K-POP boy band BTS performs “DNA” for an incredibly excited Stage 56 audience, on the Late Late Show with James Corden!
“Two weeks ago Jin, Jimin, J-Hope, Jungkook, Suga, V, and RM (formerly Rap Monster!) made their US television debut at the American Music Awards, where they were greeted by all the ecstatic fanfare you’d expect from a legitimately massive boy band. (Throats were shredded; tears were shed.) Their heavily choreographed, obviously lip-synced performance was a rare flash of excitement at an otherwise dour event. Since then, BTS have played Kimmel. They’ve played Ellen. Their appearance on Corden, hotly anticipated for weeks, is finally airing tonight. All of these broadcasts are being promoted as major events, with each talk show devoting multiple segments to BTS and their horde of passionate fans. This procession of competing Beatles-on-Sullivan moments feels like the US entertainment industry scrambling to recognize what has been true for a while now: BTS are one of the biggest pop groups in the world, if not the biggest outright.” (via Stereogum)
