BTS to take over Jimmy Fallon's 'The Tonight Show'

BTS has a very tight schedule next week.

The all-male K-pop group, BTS, has great news for their fans. Following their surprise treat, “Dynamite,” earlier in August, they are now about to “take over” Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show next week.

On Tuesday, the celebrity host made the big “important” announcement to his audience. He said that the “biggest boy band in the world,” which comprises Jimin, Jungkook, Jin, V, RM, Suga, and J-Hope, will be on the show, according to Vulture.

BTS to perform a new song every night

Starting September 28, BTS will take on the center stage to perform a new song every night on The Tonight Show. Aside from their performances, Jimmy Fallon added that he would also have a virtual interview with the South Korean icons, as well as some games.

Later on, reports added that the seven members would serve as the show’s “lead guest” on their third day of week-long residence. It will be “explosive, like TNT,” the celebrity host said.

The K-pop group’s return to the show marks their first appearance since their last visit in February. After the release of their latest album, Map of the Soul: 7, The Tonight Show featured BTS, which provided the viewers with a Grand Central Station takeover as they performed “On.”

First performance on Tiny Desk concert

The announcement from Jimmy Fallon just came after BTS had their first-ever NPR Music’s Tiny Desk (home) concert. On Monday, the seven members of the group performed three tracks, “Spring Day,” “Save Me,” and “Dynamite.”

Later on, NPR Music reported that the all-male K-pop group broke the platform’s record for the most-viewed premiere. Billie Eilish previously held the record as she obtained 782,000 views on the first day of the session, according to Washingtonian.

But, in the case of BTS, they reached 700,000 views in the first 15 minutes alone. The video on YouTube has since obtained more than 8.6 million views.

They will deliver a UNICEF speech

Aside from their stint next week, the K-pop stars will also deliver a “special message of hope” at the United Nations General Assembly meeting. The event will take place on Wednesday, at 9:00 a.m. ET, according to Billboard.

This will be the second time in two years that BTS will make a speech at the U.N. General Assembly. The publication then recalled that the group began working with UNICEF in 2017 for the “Love Myself” campaign, which targets violence against young people.
