‘The one with pink hair is adorable.’
The seven-member group performed on the heels of the release of their highly-anticipated album, Map of the Soul: Persona.
Fans have been camping out at 30 Rock, trying to score tickets to the show, according to Billboard; the BTS fandom, aka the ARMY, is no joke. Host Emma Stone and the women of SNL alluded to BTS-mania in a teaser for the episode.
And of course, Twitter nearly exploded.
