For their second "SNL" performance Saturday night, BTS brought it back to their 2017 single "MIC Drop", off their "Love Yourself: Answer" and "Love Yourself: Her" albums.

Korean pop superstars BTS, the most popular boy band in world, have broken YouTube's record for the most views garnered in the first 24 hours of release with their song titled Boy With Luv featuring American pop star Halsey, reported Variety. Some fans were angry, however, with the show's sneak peek, with many arguing that the skit infantilized women's interests and painted a negative picture of fangirls.
