NCT 127 is set to further spread K-Pop wave in America. The South Korean boyband has scored their first U.S. television show gig, being booked to perform on ABC’s late-night talk show “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Monday, October 8.
SM Entertainment proudly announced the group’s upcoming U.S. TV debut on Twitter on September 25. The agency which represents the band tweeted, “#NCTZen! we are so excited to announce our very first nationally televised performance in the U.S. on October 8th at @jimmykimmellive!!!”

The Jimmy Kimmel-hosted show airs Monday through Friday at 11:35 P.M. ET on ABC. The show invited BTS a.k.a. Bangtan Boys back in November last year. The seven-piece band has since graced the stage of other U.S. TV shows, most recently on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” on September 12. Jin and friends are next scheduled to appear on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Tuesday, September 25 and “Good Morning America” on Wednesday, September 26.
As for NCT 127’s U.S. television debut, it’s currently unknown what they have in store for their upcoming appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”. The second sub-unit of NCT is set to make their comeback with their first full album “NCT #127 Regular-Irregular” on October 12, so it’s safe to assume that they will promote material from the new set.
Fans are already overjoyed at the band’s upcoming appearance on “JKL”. One of them reacted to the news by tweeting, “Congratulations NCT 127! NCTzens are beyond proud of you. Let’s go global!” Another commented, “So excited and cannot wait to watch it!! Stay tuned.”
