"And now, on the same stage 50 years later, plus 5 years, 3 months, 6 days, a new batch of mop-topped heartthrobs has landed," the narrator said in the cold open video

Colbert smooth-talked to the camera, "Ladies and gentlemen, tonight we've got a big, big show and it continues. and people are so excited, you can only call it BTS mania. "

Colbert à la Sullivan continued," These boys aren't from America. No, they're from across the pound — the big one. with Hawaii in the middle. They're really a nice group of youngsters. You can call them the Fab 7. It's got a nice ring to it. "

"How do you do? I'm RM . I'm a nice boy. "

" Hi guys, I'm Suga . "

" Hi, my name is V and I'm a good boy. "

" Hi! I'm your hope, you're my hope, I'm J-Hope ! "

" Hi, I'm Jimin . Nice to meet you guys. "
