Psy, famous for his song Gangnam Style, also made his appearance on an American talk show to promote his collaboration with Snoop Dogg, "Hangover," which made its way to the Top 26 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Conan O'Brien also partnered with Steven Yeun, a Korean- American actor famous for his role in The Walking Dead, for a special "Conan in Korea" episode, which leads into an amazing collaboration with the head of JYP Entertainment Park Jin-Young. The episode featured other known K-pop stars such as Twice, Wonder Girls and also some special cutouts of GOT7.
There had also been rumors circulating that The Ellen Show producer Andy Lassner confirmed BTS's invitation to the show, although the group's appearance on the show has yet to be confirmed, according to Soompi. However, despite the lack of concrete proof, BTS fans are excited about this recent turnout as it would the first for any K-pop idol group to appear in the show.
