All seven members were joined by ranks of back-up dancers for one of the most impressive performances on late night television. During their subway ride, the group talked about their phenomenal success stateside how their music has crossed both geographical and cultural boundaries.
“We came from a small label, from a small country from Asia, so we’ve proved that someone from the outside can be in the mainstream,” shared member RM.

The band will embark on a tour in support of the LP in April at Seoul’s Olympic Stadium and will play shows in North America through May and June, including dates in Santa Clara, Los Angeles, Dallas, Orlando, Atlanta, New Jersey, D.C., Toronto and Chicago.
