Live from New York, it’s BTS, Emma Stone, and Saturday Night Live cast member Cecily Strong!
The nine stars appear alongside one another in some newly-released promo clips teasing fans ahead of this week’s SNL, which Stone will host and BTS will feature as the musical guest. They are the first South Korean act to perform on the sketch comedy series.
In one clip, the boys appear on their own as RM introduces the act as this week’s musical guests. In a second clip, which features three short segments, Stone and Strong stand among the seven men, as Stone introduces herself as the weekend show’s host while she and Strong freak out over the mega popular boy band.
