“When you get in the lift with tonight’s guests!” the talk show host tweeted alongside a photo of himself packed into an elevator with all seven members of the K-pop boy band.
Later in the day, Corden also sent a shout-out to the BTS A.R.M.Y. for supporting a British charity close to his heart called Magic Breakfast. “Oh man. This BTS army is real and full of love and it’s great!,” he replied to a fan account urging fans to donate to the nonprofit on his behalf. “You have no idea how many children you have helped. Thank you thank you thank you x.” (Ashton Kutcher, who filmed a “Hide and Seek” segment with the band during their appearance, also replied to Corden. “Was a blast shooting this today,” he wrote. “Hope you all enjoy it.”)
That night, the K-pop act appeared on the late night show to debut their latest bop “Black Swan,” which serves as the lead single off the band’s forthcoming studio album, Map of the Soul: 7 (due out Feb. 21 via Big Hit Entertainment).
