K-pop group BTS will become the first-ever Korean group to perform at ABC’s prestigious annual event “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” 2018. It’s reported that BTS has already recorded their upcoming act as early as November at the time their thrilling AMA performance went down.
However, BTS won’t be considered as the first Korean act since singer PSY took those honors with his performance during the iconic event back in 2013, according to Billboard. This doesn’t change the fact that the K-pop group will achieve another historical feat on December 31 since earning a spot at the Guinness Book of World Records.
