Popular Korean boy band BTS (Bangtan Boys) are killing it globally. Its hard to contemplate any other Kpop artists having a year more successful, from a global perspective, then that BTS have had in 2017.
Some 2017 highlights are:
Now, they can add one more accolade, they have appeared on the hugely popular late night program, Jimmy Kimmel Live.
and there was this..

Though its amazing for Army and BTS fans worldwide, its not the first time Kpop idols have made waves on US mainstream TV. In 2012, Popular girl group Girls Generation made their network TV debut on the David Letterman Show.
GLEE featured a clip of their characters dancing to Big Bang's 'Fantastic Baby' and as everyone did, did their own take on Gangnam Style'.
