The BTS army knows that the month of December is special beyond the usual festivities, as it is Kim Taehyung aka V's birthday on December 30 and fans across the world have been gearing up in preparation. Of them, the Chinese fan base which goes by Twitter handle @KIMTAEHYUNGBAR_ have outdone themselves this year by taking out an ad about their favorite idol on the tallest building in the world - Burj Khalifa.

First support in the world’s tallest structure and the largest music fountain for a Kpop Star bday ad. Happy 26th bday. Birthday cake @BTS_twt @BurjKhalifa #KIMTAEHYUNG."

Even as many on Twitter asked how the fans in China's fan club were able to afford this, one Twitter user wrote, "If ur wondering how china taehyung bar affords this... they raised over 7 million rmb (1 MILLION USD) for taehyung's birthday this year in just under 80 days... so." Another twitter user wrote, "HELP IT TAKES 68K DOLLARS FOR A THREE MINUTE AD ON BURJ KHALIFA BRO." One user also posted the cost of posting an ad on Burj Khalifa alongside the video of the ad and wrote, "Help this is the cost to display an ad on burj khalifa.

Previously, V's fanclub had shown their love for the star by taking out an ad in Time magazine. They also organised the festival 'Like Winter, Like Spring' which was a parade that had taken place in the entire downtown area where the SBS Gayo Daejeon was held including Seoul and Daegu. The parade saw about 13 buses that measured 200 meters show off different activities by Taehyung and this was done with cooperation from the local transportation department. The designs also reflected a lot of Taehyung's journey since his debut days and in the seven years since.
A few days ago, Christmas got merrier for BTS V fans worldwide as V just dropped a festive special track ‘Snow Flower’. V not just created a song for comforting BTS' army of fans, he also thanked ‘white angels’, a phrase used for frontline workers fighting Covid and saving 2020. BTS army believes that Kim Taehyung is the answer to a bad year, as they flooded social media platforms in praise of the K-pop crooner's new track,
