Fans of the South Korean boy band BTS are probably going crazy just about now.
After all, many of them have been dying for the lads to be featured on the Late Late Show with James Corden‘s ‘Carpool Karaoke‘ segment ever since it became a thing.
Well, that wait is now over, as it has just been announced the BTS ‘Carpool Karaoke‘ segment will be airing on the Late Late Show on January 25th as part of that night’s broadcast.
And yes, BTW will be singing along to their own songs, with Corden accompanying.
The band’s appearance is to help promote Map of the Soul: 7, the upcoming new album from BTS and the band’s fourth Korean-language studio album.
Yes, Korean-language. No, North American fans don’t seem to mind.
The band has also announced the Map of the Soul worldwide tour, which will include a 15-date tour of the U.S. and Canada beginning on April 25th in Santa Clara, California. (More info on the BTS website).
Map of the Soul: 7 will be releasing this Friday, February 21st.
Black Swan‘, the lead single from the latest BTS album, was released in mid-January with the official music video for the song coming out on February 28th.
It is also worth noting, before the BTS ‘Carpool Karaoke‘ segment, the seven-member boy band will also be appearing the day before on NBC’s Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
To prove how utterly massive BTS has become in North America, Fallon is dedicating his entire show to them.
Yep, next week is going to a HUGE week for fans of BTS.
Meanwhile, to get you in the mood, watch BTS’s debut live performance of their latest single ‘Black Swan‘, which The Late Late Show with James Corden was also privileged to air in late January.
The same time the BTS ‘Carpool Karaoke‘ segment was filmed. Obviously.
