BTS is back!

The K-pop boy band returned to the Saturday Night Live stage to perform their second song of the night, "Mic Drop."  

Dressed in colorful yet coordinating ensembles -- ditching their black suits from their first set of the night -- RM, V, Suga, Jungkook, Jimin, Jin and J-Hope danced around the stage with sharp, perfectly executed choreography.

The performance followed their first song of the night, "Boy With Luv." 

The group is the first K-pop act to be a musical guest on SNL; Psy notably made an appearance during a September 2012 sketch with Bobby Moynihan, who impersonated him on the series after the success of "Gangnam Stye."

Just one day earlier, BTS dropped their newest album, Map of the Soul: Persona, which featured seven new songs, including one with Halsey. 

Map of the Soul: Persona is the follow-up to BTS' last album trilogy, Love Yourself, which was released between 2017 and 2018. Love Yourself: Tear was record-breaking for the boy band, as they became the first K-pop act to be nominated for a GRAMMY for Best Recording Package.

Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. ET/ 8:30 p.m. PT on NBC. See more on BTS in the video below.
