There’s Christmas week, Easter week, and the annual exciting week of sales.  
 
Now you can add “BTS Week” to the list as NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” will air a weeklong special titled “BTS Week” from Sept. 28.  
 
Big Hit Entertainment, the megahit K-pop group’s agency, announced Wednesday that the American late-night show will dedicate five consecutive days to air BTS’s performances. The boys will also be featured in comedy skits and virtual interviews.  
 
"We love having BTS on the show," host Jimmy Fallon said in a statement. "Last time we had them on we took over Grand Central Terminal, so we had our work cut out for us to top that."
