For all the excitement evident in the audience, the loudest cheers reverberated across social media as the BTS ARMY noted all the enthusiasm and welcomed the legion of newly converted SNL-watching fans.

The record was previously set by South Korean K-Pop group BLACKPINK, whose video for "Kill This Love" reached 56.7 million in one day.

YouTube Music took to its official Twitter handle on Sunday morning to confirm this mind-numbing achievement, declaring 'Boy with Luv' music video to have indeed become the most watched 24-hour debut. Check out some of the hilarious and heartwarming reactions from fans all around the world.

The group is the first K-pop act to be a musical guest on SNL; Psy notably made an appearance during a September 2012 sketch with Bobby Moynihan, who impersonated him on the series after the success of "Gangnam Stye".

According to Spotify's most recent charts of April 13, BTS's "Boy with Luv" featuring Halsey, the title track of their new album "MAP OF THE SOUL: PERSONA" is ranked in third place on Spotify's Global Top 200 chart.
