BTS, otherwise known as the Bangtan Boys, just became the first-ever Korean pop group to present an award during this year’s Grammy Awards.
The seven-member boy band made up of RM, Suga, J-Hope, V, Jungkook, Jin, and Jimin, were nominated for Best Recording Package for their album Love Yourself: Tear but lost to St Vincent‘s MassEducation.
Per PEOPLE, this is the first time a Korean album has been given the nod in any category by the Recording Academy.
Despite the loss, attending the Grammys is still huge deal for the boy band and their millions and millions and millions of fans.
As BTS took to the stage, RM – who presented the award – told the crowd:
“Growing up in South Korea, we’ve always dreamed about standing on the Grammys stage. Thank you to all our fans for making this dream come true.”
RM, who learned English by watching Friends, added “We’ll be back,” before reading out the nominations.

As for the rest of the night, the boys were just a tad adorable to watch as they danced along to Dolly Parton and her goddaughter Miley Cyrus performing ‘Jolene’.

Last October, Steve Aoki – who has collaborated with BTS three times now – released a tune featuring the band titled ‘Waste It On Me’. It marked the boy band’s first-ever song entirely in English.
Then, in November, BTS became the first k-pop group to perform at the 2017 American Music Awards.Image: Getty Images / Jeff Kravitz
