It's only been a few hours since BTS were onThe Late Late Show with James Corden and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, but their appearances have sparked up a debate online!

When BTS appeared on The Late Late Show, James Corden introduced the boys as "the biggest band in the world".  Jimmy Kimmel teased the group's appearance on his show by saying that they're "the most popular band in the world."

Not long after those glowing remarks were made, an online debate over who is actually the biggest boy band in the world started brewing up between ARMYs and fans of super-popular boy band One Direction, resulting in the creation of the hashtag #1DisStillTheBiggestBoyBand.

In fact, in just a couple of hours since this hashtag was created, #1DisStillTheBiggestBoyBand was trending worldwide at No.1 on Twitter (and still is at the time of writing).

Here are some of the comments made by ARMYs and One Direction fans regarding the BTS, One Direction, and the #1DisStillTheBiggestBoyBand hashtag:
