The quartet will play the popular late-night show on April 18.

Just days after making their Coachella debut this weekend, BLACKPINK will also play another major stateside stage in their ongoing U.S. crossover.

In a first for K-pop girl groups, BLACKPINK will reportedly make their debut on The Late Late Show With James Corden as the musical guests for the upcoming April 18 episode.

Headline Planet initially reported a week's worth of guests on the popular program, sharing that actors Andrew Garfield and Lake Bell will also appear on the episode.

Other than BLACKPINK, boy band BTS is the only other Korean act to make their way to Corden's program. The septet first attended the Late Late Show to perform their Hot 100 hit "DNA" and play a game of "Flinch" with the host, and returned the following year to perform their single "Fake Love."

The Late Late Show booking marks the latest mainstream-media moment for BLACKPINK. The outfit made up of Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa are represented by South Korea's YG Entertainment and signed with Interscope Records for U.S. promotions. Their latest single "Kill This Love" is No. 2 on Billboard's World Digital Song Sales chart and is expected to rise on multiple charts next week following the April 5 release of their full Kill This Love EP.
