Four days after the global release of their new album (more on that below), BTS is ready to achieve the ultimate height of professional and creative nirvana. No, we're not talking selling millions of albums and worldwide, sold-out tours or the legions of fans around the globe willing to do their bidding with simply a smile.
The popular K-pop group is set to join CBS's The Late Late Show With James Corden host James Corden on Tuesday, February 25, for a few miles of "Carpool Karaoke" – and now we've got a teaser to keep fans at bay until Tuesday night.
Check it out for yourselves below – and no, we don't think they're asking you to be part of the group, James…
Each weeknight, James Corden invites the audience to join in on the fun as the Emmy Award-winning THE LATE LATE SHOW with JAMES CORDEN features a mix of celebrity guests, musical acts, games and sketches. Corden differentiates his show by giving a peek behind-the-scenes into the green room, bringing all of his guests out at once and lending his musical and acting talents to various sketches. Additionally, bandleader Reggie Watts and the house band provide Corden with original, improvised music throughout the show. Since Corden took the reins as host in March 2015, the show has quickly become known for generating buzzworthy viral videos, such as "Carpool Karaoke."
BTS' "Carpool Karaoke" segment comes a month after the group debuted a new single off their now newly-released album Map of the Soul: 7, performing "Black Swan" on Corden's show. Fans can expect a mix of new and old songs during the segment – though we're curious to see if any "curveballs" are thrown into the mix.
