Would have loved to see Sandra and BTS the same night. Amazing opportunity for them, someone tell Bighit this is a huge deal that should not be taken lightly.

Yeah I don't wanna be that person but I hope someone explains to them that SNL is basically the YHY's Sketchbook of America lol you can't fuck this up or ppl will take note. Better rehearse those vocals...

Congratulations Kings. These numbers are huge but both album were so good so well deserved. Meanwhile, all of us fans are getting poorer by the minute (I'm saying this while considering preordering all 4 versions of Map of the soul azlkzalkkzajkasklqja what is my life)
pinklunacy 13th-Mar-2019 08:41 pm (UTC)
Side note but if they are actually performing on SNL, that means they will probably be debuting their new song on SNL (seeing that the album comes out on the 12th and they're scheduled on the 13th), which seems kinda huge to me??
mc1a 13th-Mar-2019 08:09 pm (UTC)
Let’s get it!

they're gonna perform their new song there, right? i hope they sing live and dont lipsync.............
lil_poisonfrog 13th-Mar-2019 08:55 pm (UTC)
Apparently Lorne Michaels doesn't allow backing tracks so yeah they're gonna have to...

I can't help it, and maybe it's vapid, but I wish they were there when Sandra Oh was. I loved loved her unapologetic character on Grey's (which I know she didn't write, but she made real) and since then everything with her. Plus, she left an impression in Sideways.

And I think every exposure an idol gets to someone like her, from what I know of her, is a win.

if they sing live please turn jimin's mic off i cant take the struggle anymore

Pleeeeease let the new song be a solid one, I want this to be fun and good so badly! Massively weirded out by the idea of BTS and Pete Davidson existing in the same frame.
nekobot 13th-Mar-2019 09:03 pm (UTC)
(Dope would've been such a perfect match for SNL ugh)
