K-pop band BTS their continuing its global domination with a performance and appearance on “Good Morning America.” According to Billboard, it marks the group’s first-ever appearance on a U.S. morning show.
The seven-member group, made up of rappers Suga, J-Hope and RM and singers Jimin, V and Jungkook, performed point choreography -- a signature of K-pop music and culture -- as fans, called ARMY, screamed with excitement.
The group has a busy week in New York and the tri-state area. They appeared on a Wednesday night episode of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and, before then, made history as the first K-Pop act to make a U.N. speech at the United Nations’ 73rd General Assembly.
At the General Assembly, RM, the leader of the boy band, spoke on behalf of the group.
“We have learned to love ourselves, so now I urge you to ‘speak yourself,’” he said. “No matter who you are, where you’re from, your skin color, gender identity, just speak yourself.”
CBS News reported that the group also performed at the event, which also celebrated the launch of the UN’s Generation Unlimited program. The initiative aims to provide quality education and training to youth.
BTS will perform two sold-out shows at Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, Sept. 28 and 29. The group will perform its last U.S. stop on the “Love Yourself World Tour” Oct. 6 at Citi Field in New York.
