K-pop sensation BTS will premiere its upcoming album "Map of the Soul: Persona" on the famous American live television variety show "Saturday Night Live" next month, its management agency said Thursday.

BTS will appear on the NBC comedy show on April 13 to present live the music and performances off the new album to the international audience, Big Hit Entertainment said.

SNL earlier announced the lineup on its SNS accounts, listing BTS and Emma Stone for the April 13 episode. The K-pop septet will be the musical guest, while Stone will host the show.
