NEW YORK — “Game of Thrones” fans and the BTS ARMY are in for a treat next month.
Not only will BTS release their new album, “Map of the Soul: Persona” on April 12, but the K-pop group will also make their “Saturday Night Live” debut a day later.
Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow on the HBO mega-hit “Game of Thrones,” will host the show on April 6 — a week before its final seasons premiers.
BTS’s “Map of the Soul: Persona” follows their 2018 album “Love Yourself: Tear,” which became the first Korean-language album to top the Billboard 200 chart.
Pre-orders for “Map of the Soul: Persona” begin Mar. 13.
The band will begin their BTS World Tour “Love Yourself: Speak Yourself” in May, starting in North America, where tickets were sold out for all initial three dates within a few hours. A second date for each of the North American venues was later added.
