Panic accordingly, American A.R.M.Y: the boys of BTS are coming stateside for their first-ever U.S. red carpet appearance later this month at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards.

The “Not Today” troupe, who made history as the first-ever Korean act to be nominated for the Top Social Act category and continues to dominate at No.1 after 22 weeks on Billboard’s Social 50 chart, will appear at the event, which is being held once again at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, on Sunday, May 21, beginning at 8 PM EST on ABC.

“We truly believe that all our songs are ‘trans-national,” which means there’s no boundaries in terms of music genres or lyrics because we make music we like as a listener,” the group told PopCrush in a recent interview.

The group recently wrapped their latest Wings Tour leg in the U.S., including stops in New Jersey, Chicago (read our review!) and Los Angeles.
