After describing BTS’ appearance at the 76th United Nations General Assembly as “unusual” on his late-night talk show The Late Late Show With James Corden, ARMYs took notice.

The United Nations General Assembly kicked off this morning in New York City and it started with some pretty unusual visitors, BTS were there… love it. It must be weird, though, for whoever uploads the UN General Assembly meeting on YouTube.

ARMYs also chastised Corden for saying the boy band's supporters are made of “15-year-old girls.”

“Although in many ways, a lot of you will be saying ‘Why BTS,’ the world leaders have no choice but to take BTS seriously. BTS has one of the largest ‘ARMYs’ on the planet Earth. Historic moment, it’s actually amongst the first time that 15-year-old girls everywhere found themselves wishing that they were Secretary-General Gutierrez,” Corden added.

Despite the fact that the video was taken down, supporters re-posted it on social media. Fans have reacted furiously to Corden’s statement, with some accusing him of “using BTS for clout.”

Angry viewers were also upset with the host for “stereotyping” the ARMY as 15-year-olds.

Since 2017, the K-pop sensations have made multiple appearances on James Corden’s Late Late Show. The “Carpool Karaoke” segment, which has over 88 million views as of this writing, is one of their most popular appearances.


At the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Moment event held prior of the 76th United Nations General Assembly, the group gave a powerful message about youth empowerment and performed the song Permission to Dance.

BTS just made K-pop history by speaking out as South Korea’s special presidential envoy for future generations at the 76th United Nations General Assembly.
