Congratulations have been pouring in from ARMY (BTS’s official fandom name) all over the world in celebration of V’s birthday on December 30. 


V celebrated his 25th birthday on Wednesday. In honor of his special day, Jimin, J-Hope, and other members wished V a happy birthday on BTS’s official Twitter account and posted pictures, to the delight of their fans.

One of the members tweeted out a slew of purple hearts along with the message, “Happy birthday to the coolest and loveliest cutie in the world, Tae Hyung.” They also added hashtags such as: #Taehyung_YourExistenceItself_IsaGift #HappyBirthdayV #HAPPYVDAY and #HappyTaehyungDay.


In particular, the extraordinary birthday present prepared by V’s fan club has reaffirmed the power that BTS holds globally.

A birthday tribute video for V was featured on the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building which has 163 floors and a roof height of 828 meters. A quiet and tranquil fountain show set to “Winter Bear” – a song that V helped to write and produce –  also played at the iconic Dubai Fountain.


Submissions to the Burj Khalifa light show must undergo a complex screening process, and up until this point, only government promotional videos and ads for international companies have been given permission to be featured on the building. The fact that a birthday tribute for V was played at such a location once again shows BTS’s status as one of the world’s top musical acts.
