In just a few hours, k-pop fans will find themselves glued to their TVs thanks to The Late Late Show. The late-night series will debut its episode with BTS later this evening after keeping fans waiting, and the fandom is understandably excited. And, if you didn't know, it looks like James Corden is pretty excited.
If you go to Twitter and look up one simple profile, you will see how much time The Late Late Show is putting into its BTS episode. The show's official page went the extra mile by changing its name to honor the k-pop group, and the team even updated its banner with a photo of the boys.
However, The Late Late Show's best bit of promotion has come from its Twitter replies. The series' social media team is working around the clock to troll BTS fans, and the k-pop fandom is loving the extra attitude.
As you can see below, The Late Late Show has perfectly tapped into k-pop culture to promote BTS's appearance. The CBS series is using fandom-favorite memes to hype the band, and some of the show's employees went so far as to photoshop Corden himself into some truly iconic photos with BTS.

So, really - the comedian has become the band's honorary eighth members.
The following slides show just a snippet of the fandom's reaction to The Late Late Show, and it all gives praise to Corden's team. The television personality has been a favorite of k-pop fans since videos of BTS's time on the show hit Youtube. Corden told audience members he had been trying to get BTS on his program for a year before they could hook up, and the host's bubbly personality will surely sit well with the hugely popular group.
