Girl group Blackpink will take the stage on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” next week, the U.S. broadcaster CBS announced.

Celebrities who have made appearances on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” include former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, singer Lady Gaga, actor Ryan Reynolds, singer Justin Timberlake and actor Jack Black.

Blackpink’s appearance on the show will mark the first meeting between the show’s comedian host and the Korean artists, its agency YG Entertainment said in a statement.
