“BTS is very very popular, and we want to have some fun with that. So, we went to the line outside and we found moms were waiting in line with their daughters,” Kimmel said in his monologue. “We brought the moms inside and introduced them to the boys in BTS. Well, if you think you’re mad, wait until you find out how mad their daughters were.”

Two moms of superfans were later brought into the studio, where they video-called their daughters. The fans didn’t have any idea that their moms were surrounded by their idols before the camera panned to the South Korean heartthrobs, making the fans freak out. One of the moms jokingly said to her daughter, “Sucks to be you!”
When asked about her feelings knowing that her moms got to see BTS when she didn’t, one of the daughter fans admitted that she was “a little bit jealous.” One of the moms shared, “I’m very excited, very nervous and very lucky to be the one.” Jimmy quipped, “If you think about it, you’re almost as lucky as your daughters unlucky for not meeting them.”
Meanwhile, a new report suggests that BTS’ live interview on the late-night show may be canceled. Ticket holders reportedly got email from iota, a ticketing site which sells tickets for both the mini concert and live interview, which reads, “So sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the Monday, November 20, 2017 @ 4.15 PM taping of CANCELLED: Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday, November 20, 2017 has indeed been canceled.” The site continues saying, “This is always frustrating. Because television is such an ever-changing industry, these things do happen from time to time.”
The alleged cancellation reportedly is related to surgery of Kimmel’s son. However, it should be noted that there is no official statement regarding the cancellation as of now.
While the fate of the group’s live interview on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” remains to be seen, BTS’ outdoor mini concert on the show is set to air on November 29.
