For BTS V fans worldwide, December 30 is ‘Vday’ as the fans of Grammy-nominated K-pop group BTS celebrate the singer Kim Taehyung’s birthday with a number of charity donations, grand birthday ads, and looking at the ‘Sweet Night’ crooner’s 2020 world records.

2020 was truly a year for BTS and its members as they broke through multiple world records both as a group and individually. For Kim Taehyung, the first world record came with his OST ‘Sweet Night’ for Netflix series ‘Itaewon Class’, which broke Adele’s record of having the highest number of iTunes over 100 countries - ‘Sweet Night’ charted number 1 in 117 countries. Not just that, the singer’s achievement followed a winner’s strike with having another song ‘Inner Child’ topping in more than 82 countries making him the first soloist in the world to have this record.



 

 



 

According to Spotify Wrapped 2020, V’s ‘Sweet Night’ is also the highest streamed OST. Later with BTS’ latest album ‘BE’, Kim Taehyung achieved another record - ‘Blue and Grey’, produced by him, ranked 13 in Billboards Hot 100 with the most amount of digital sales worldwide, making it the highest charting B sidetrack of BE as well any BTS tracks. To top it off, Genius Korea has ranked V as one of the top Korean artists of 2020.

To celebrate the birthday of V, who is known for his message of healing worldwide, fans have also arranged quite a few mega surprises for the ‘Singularity’ singer. V became the first Korean idol to have his birthday ad in TIME magazine as well as the first soloist to be on Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. A fan page shared, “We have 24hrs left until the tallest building in the world Burj Khalifa will light up for Taehyung’s 26th birthday along with Dubai Dancing Fountain being played with Winter Bear.  Dec 29 @ 6:50pm SHARP!Don’t come late as it will be played at once only.”

Another page shared the massive charities conducted in the singer’s name this year. “The true testament to Taehyung’s positive influence is how every achievement/birthday of his is celebrated by donating to charities, adopting endangered animals, building schools & bridges, donating toys to kids, donating food to animal shelters.” Another fan page shared, “Several philanthropy efforts & charity donations for various causes have been made honouring Taehyung's birthday. Some are already completed, some are still accepting donations. Please take a look @BTS_twt "Taehyung's Donation/charity bday projects"
