The band released the official video for Boy With Luv on Friday, and it's already had more than 109 million views.

Aside from making their own SNL stage debut, BTS' performance also notably marked the first Saturday Night Live performance from a Korean act - an important milestone for both K-pop and global music in general.

Colin Jost also dropped BTS' name to a similar reaction during Weekend Update, with laud screams also accompanying the band's performances.

K-pop band BTS has done it again: smashing the YouTube record Blackpink broke only last week. Though several members of the group were still clad in chunky white sneakers, they ditched their suits for loose-fitting trousers and baggy jackets - going for more of a hip-hop vibe.

Their album "Map of the Soul: Persona" looks set to be become the group's biggest hit yet, judging from how much they've achieved in just a few days.

Halsey's vocals capture "the giddiness of being in love, while the lyrics address the relationship the group has with its ARMY: 'I'm flying high in the sky with the two wings you gave me, ' with the wings referencing the title of their second album". "BTS is here", she announced, drawing a roaring thunder from the audience.

The Boy With Luv video pays homage to Gene Kelly's classic movie musical Singin' in the Rain.
