On the occasion of BTS member V's birthday, the Burj Khalifa is lit up with the singer's pictures
On the occasion of BTS singer V's 26th birthday, his fans organised for the Burj Khalifa to be illuminated with photographs of him on 29th Dec
For the second year in a row, BTS singer V's fan club CHINA Baidu Vbar arranged for the Burj Khalifa to be lit up to commemorate his birthday. On Thursday, the singer turns 26 years old (international age).
The world's tallest structure was covered with photos and wishes for the singer in footage posted by admirers in Dubai. The song Inner Child, sung by V for Map of the Soul: 7, was played in the backdrop of the three-minute commercial. Several fans have been heard singing along to the song.
This is the second time the Burj Khalifa has been involved in a birthday project. A similar event was held last year by the fan group. The fan club chose the song Winter Bear to play while the singer's photographs were projected over the edifice.
BTS fans all across the world have organised special birthday projects in honour of his birthday. A few projects, including fundraisers and advertisements, have been planned in India as well.
Bangtan India, an Indian BTS fan organisation, held a fundraiser in honour of Jin and V's birthdays, generating around $1,05,008 to be donated to an NGO that empowers women by encouraging discussion of taboo topics like menstruation.
V's Indian fan base, @Taehyung india_ (Twitter handle), rented out a few billboards in Kolkata and Delhi to advertise the singer's birthday.
Fans have also come up with a few birthday initiatives for the artist in South Korea. V paid a visit to a couple of them earlier this week and documented his trip on Instagram.
V, like the rest of the BTS members, is now on hiatus. V and his family went to Hawaii for a vacation earlier this month after it was reported that the group would be taking a break. He finished his quarantine after his return and has been visiting friends.
