SEOUL -- K-pop band BTS will perform on Saturday Night Live (SNL), a popular American late-night TV variety show, on April 13, a day after BTS drops "Map of the Soul: Persona", the group's first album of 2019.

NBC Entertainment, the broadcaster of SNL, tweeted an image showing a list of guests to its late-night show. The show will be hosted by Hollywood actress Emma Stone, who described herself as a K-pop fan.

SNL, which was first aired in 1975, is a highly desired stage for any artists seeking to up its reputation to a whole new level. Many artists including Adele and Rhianna reached new heights in their career when their songs hit the roofs of song charts following their performance on SNL stages.

BTS has appeared on popular American TV shows such as The Late Late Show with James Corden and The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
