Boy, are they in luv.

Some fans of South Korean boy band BTS, known for hits like “Boy in Luv" and “Boy with Luv,” waited more than a week in the rain and cold to score a good spot at the group’s Central Park performance Wednesday morning.

The show kicked off ABC’s “Good Morning America" summer concert series at the park’s Rumsey Playfield. Fans started lining up as early as Tuesday of last week, according to WABC-TV, dealing with plenty of rain and temperatures that dipped into the 40s at night as they camped out.

"It’s cold, it’s been raining, but it’s really cool to see how the [BTS] Army all unites,” fan Anna Tamura told WABC. “And we’re all enthusiastic about this and trying to support each other while having a good time.”

Sheridan Formoso also felt it was worth the wait. "They have a good message for everyone, for older people, for younger people, for people of color, for LGBT, for everyone and they’re always so genuine,” the fan said.

Tickets for the event were free. Other acts scheduled as part of the concert series include R&B singer Ciara on May 31, pop punk group Blink-182 on July 19 and rapper Pitbull on Aug. 2. Tickets for those shows are also free, but must be secured in advance once they become available at

Last month, BTS broke several records with the release of the video for their new song with Halsey, “Boy with Luv.” The video became the most viewed YouTube video in 24 hours, the most viewed YouTube music video in 24 hours, and the most viewed YouTube music video in 24 hours by a K-pop group.

Among the group’s other records, they were also the first K-pop boy band to be musical guests on “Saturday Night Live" last month.
